  • "Bringing together characters from Oryx and Crake and The year of the flood, this conclusion to Margaret Atwood's speculative fiction trilogy confirms the ultimate endurance of humanity, community, and love. Months after the Waterless Flood pandemic has wiped out most of humanity, Toby and Ren have rescued their friend Amanda from the Painballers. They return to the MaddAddamite cobb house, which is being fortified against man and giant Pigoon alike. Accompanying them are the Crakers, the gentle, quasihuman species engineered by the brilliant but deceased Crake. While their reluctant prophet, Jimmy--Crake's one-time friend--recovers from a debilitating fever, it's left to Toby to narrate the Craker theology, with Crake as Creator. She must also deal with cultural misunderstandings, terrible coffee, and her jealousy over her lover, Zeb. Meanwhile, Zeb searches for Adam One, founder of the God's Gardeners, the pacifist green religion from which Zeb broke years ago to lead the MaddAddamites in active resistance against the destructive CorpSeCorps. Now, under threat of an imminent Painballer attack, the MaddAddamites must fight back with the aid of their newfound allies, some of whom have four trotters. At the center is the story of Zeb's past, which involves a lost brother, a hidden murder, a bear, and a bizarre act of revenge.--From publisher description."

  • "Après l'extermination de la population terrestre, un petit groupe de survivants comprenant les MaddAddam, les Jardiniers de Dieu et les Crakers, des créatures innocentes et pacifistes, tentent d'évoluer dans ce monde apocalyptique. Leurs chefs doivent notamment les protéger des Painballers ultraviolents et des porcons géants. Mais une menace bien plus importante plane sur eux."

  • "A man-made plague has swept the earth, but a small group survives, along with the green-eyed Crakers - a gentle species bio-engineered to replace humans. Toby, onetime member of the Gods Gardeners and expert in mushrooms and bees, is still in love with street-smart Zeb, who has an interesting past. The Crakers' reluctant prophet, Snowman-the-Jimmy, is hallucinating; Amanda is in shock from a Painballer attack; and Ivory Bill yearns for the provocative Swift Fox, who is flirting with Zeb. Meanwhile, giant Pigoons and malevolent Painballers threaten to attack. Told with wit, dizzying imagination, and dark humour, Booker-prize-winning Margaret Atwood's unpredictable, chilling, and hilarious MaddAddam takes us further into a challenging dystopian world and holds up a skewed mirror to our own possible future."
  • "Margaret Atwood, die im November 2014 ihren 75. Geburtstag feiern wird, hat nichts von ihrer souveränen Unerschrockenheit, ihrer Kühnheit eingebüßt. >>Die Geschichte von Zeb<< ist ein großer Roman über das Ende der Welt und eine Liebe, die vielleicht alles überdauern wird. Die wasserlose Flut, eine Pandemie ungeheuren Ausmaßes, ist über die Erde hinweggegangen und hat die Menschheit ausgelöscht. Bis auf einige wenige Überlebende, die im Lehmhaus eines verwahrlosten Parks zusammenfinden und den Gefahren einer entvölkerten, anarchischen Welt trotzen. Unter ihnen Toby, die ehemalige Gottesgärtnerin, und Zeb, ein großherziger Draufgänger, der zum Anführer der kleinen Truppe wird. Während der Flut hat Toby, in einem Spa verschanzt, auf ihn gewartet; beharrlich an seine Rückkehr geglaubt, nun treffen sie, am Ende der Welt, wieder zusammen. Ein Endzeitszenario, so gewaltig und bedingungslos, wie es nur Margaret Atwood entwerfen kann. Eine Welt, die außer Kontrolle geraten ist, die sich selbst bezwungen und auf null zurückgesetzt hat. Wie in >>Das Jahr der Flut<< stellt Atwood einmal mehr ihr waches politisches Gespür unter Beweis, ihre Hellhörigkeit für gefährliche Entwicklungen und Strömungen. Möge die Welt auch zugrunde gehen, von Margaret Atwood lassen wir uns bereitwillig an den Abgrund führen. Kein Untergang, dem diese Autorin nicht mit Humor und erzählerischer Verve beikommen würde."
