Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam has been one of my favorite contemporary sci-fi series. The author of the classic A Handmaid's Tale brings her dystopian skills to bear on the twenty first century. While the series emphasizes the dangers of biotechnology and corporatism the last book emphasizes the rise of the military-internet complex. I've found it is a series that goes over well with both sexes, and that this box set makes an excellent gift.

As a science journalist, I nodded along and smiled throughout all of these books. It takes all of the alarming, tantalizing bits from the NY Times Science Tuesday section, along with SciAm and New Scientist, mixed in with Inconvenient Truth sensibilities, which is then refined through an Aldous Huxley literary pulping process, and then delivered to us in a highly entertaining, thoughtful examination of humanity's trajectory towards oblivion, pushed along by the invisible hand. The first novel was excellent, the second maybe even better, and the third was the weakest (a small book written to be long, with a few too many coincidental intersections for my taste), but still five stars. This book reminded me of why SciFi is a vital component to literature.

In book one, Atwood does a remarkable job of capturing the young man's perspective, especially given the these futuristic boys' fascination with watching porn and snuff in their gated communities. Not terribly far off from kids (and adults, for that matter) of today. Book two was fascinating, as we moved outside the sterile plastic walls of the compound and saw the gritty, cruel, cannibalistic state of existence in the slums, where about 99% of humanity live in this world. The same characters reappear and intersect in all three books, and book two really hits its stride as we readers wait to see who they'll react to each other, for better and for worse. Book two is an absolute page-turner, one of those call-in-sick books as you plow through the words to see how the chase will turn out. Book three made sense, it had to be there to tie it all together, but it was a great deal of back story that felt interesting, but not vital.

I also highly recommend this to women readers who aren't necessarily big on science fiction.

I read very few things twice... Every time I read the MaddAddam trilogy, I make new connections and discoveries. The only series I love more than this is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.

This was amazing! I stayed breathless through all 3 books. Beautifully written. The characters really become people you know. I found myself thinking about them throughout the day, as if they were real.

Margaret Atwood's vision of the future is horrifying, simply because it is so reflective of possibility based on current trends. In other words, in Dystopia, Big Business takes over the world. Environmental degradation continues uncheck as greedy Corporations delve into all means of profit, including gene splicing. This leads to creating new species -- saying much more would be a spoiler. Suffice it to say that Ms Atwoods writing is so natural, easy and flowing (in spite of sometimes gruesome subject matter) that the books seem to inform and entertain by osmosis rather than effort of reading.

Margaret Atwood is one of my favorite authors, and I really like this trilogy. She writes very well and it's a joy to read her books. On top of this, she writes about provocative and/or timely topics in a thoughtful way. You might not agree with her, but you will think about the things she writes about. Don't plan on speeding through this trilogy, but you will get a lot out of it. I especially recommend The Year of the Flood for people interested in environmental issues, but it will be better if you read Oryx and Crake first.

It took me until almost the end of the first book before I really got into the universe. From there, it was a flurry of awesome. I just wish the first book could have set the scene without being quite so dry and boring.
