Rezensionen

Süddeutsche Zeitung - Rezension
Süddeutsche Zeitung | Besprechung von 19.07.2014

Die schönsten Seiten des Sommers
Apokalypse
mit Zitronenduft
Eine Seuche rafft die Menschheit fast gänzlich dahin, nur ein paar Ökofundamentalisten überleben und basteln in alten Lehmhütten an ihrer mehr oder minder idealen Gesellschaft. Die Kommune teilen sie sich mit Laborgeschöpfen namens Craker, die schnurren wie Kätzchen, nach Zitrone riechen und ohne List sind. Der idealen Welt dient das, hätten sie nicht die Schrulle, ständig zu singen und nach Geschichten zu verlangen. Nach der von Zeb etwa, dem smarten Untergrundkämpfer. Der letzte Teil der dystopischen MaddAddam-Trilogie, der trotz Überwachungsstaat und Umweltkatastrophe eine kuriose Leichtfüßigkeit hat für diesen Sommer.

"Lights a fire from the fears of our age. . . . Miraculously balances humor, outrage, and beauty." The New York Times Book Review

"Margaret Atwood is an utterly thrilling storyteller. . . . [MaddAddam is] wonderfully entertaining and just about everything you could want in a novel." The Washington Post

Thoughtful, sardonic, and full of touches that almost resemble a fairy tale, MaddAddam will stick with you long after you ve put it down. NPR

"The most profound [book] of the trilogy. . . . An adventure story and a philosophical meditation on humanity's predilection for carnage and creation." The Economist
 
"[Atwood s] most incisive and sociologically acute work. . . . A picture of a very near and very plausible future." New York magazine

[Atwood s] vision of global disaster in the not-too-distant future is thrilling, funny, touching and, yes, horrific. The Washington Post

Fiction master Margaret Atwood wields a mighty pen. O, The Oprah Magazine

Sardonically funny. . . . [Atwood] certainly has the tone exactly right, both for the linguistic hypocrisy that can disguise any kind of catastrophe, and for the contemptuous dismissal of those who point to disaster. . . . MaddAddam is at once a pre- and a post-apocalypse story. The Wall Street Journal

The culmination of a satirical dystopian saga a decade in the making. . . . Full of adventure and intrigue. San Francisco Chronicle

The imaginative universe Atwood has created in these books is huge. . . . It s a dystopia, but it s still fun. Los Angeles Times

This third book of Margaret Atwood s acclaimed near-future dystopian trilogy is its best. . . .  Atwood presents a moving and convincing case for our stories continued existence long after we re gone. The Seattle Times

This unsentimental narrative exposes the heart of human creativity as well as our self-destructive darkness. . . . MaddAddam is fueled with edgy humor, sardonic twists, hilarious coincidences. The Boston Globe

This novel sings. . . . Close attention to detail, to voice, to what s in the hearts of these people: love, loss, the need to keep on keeping on, no matter what. The Miami Herald

There is something funny, even endearing, about such a dark and desperate view of a future a ravaged world emerging from alarmingly familiar trends that is so jam-packed with the gifts of imagination, invention, intelligence and joy. There may be some hope for us yet. Minneapolis Star Tribune
