By the author of The Handmaid's Tale and Alias Grace
The sun brightens in the east, reddening the blue-grey haze that marks the distant ocean. The vultures roosting on the hydro poles fan out their wings to dry them. the air smells faintly of burning. The waterless flood - a man-made plague - has ended the world.
But two young women have survived: Ren, a young dancer trapped where she worked, in an upmarket sex club (the cleanest dirty girls in town); and Toby, who watches and waits from her rooftop garden. Is anyone else out there?

Rezensionen
[Written with] energy, inventiveness, and narrative panache. . . . A gripping and visceral book that showcases [Atwood s] pure storytelling talents. Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

[The Year of the Flood] shows the Nobel Prize-worthy Atwood . . . at the pinnacle of her prodigious creative powers. Elle

A heart-pounding thriller. The Washington Post Book World

Leave it to Atwood to find humor in a post-apocalyptic world as she covertly, and brilliantly, addresses questions of how we need to live on an imperiled planet. Kansas City Star

Atwood is funny and clever, such a good writer and real thinker. . . . The Year of the Flood isn t prophecy, but it is eerily possible. The New York Times Book Review

Timely and gripping. . . . Atwood tells a good story, one filled with suspense and even levity. USA Today

Enthralling. . . . Memorable characters, a tightly controlled pace and shockingly plausible scenes make it fly to a mysterious, skin-prickling ending. San Francisco Chronicle

Atwood renders this civilization and these two lives within it with tenderness and insight, a healthy dread, and a guarded humor. O, the Oprah Magazine

Atwood spins the most arresting alternate mythologies to our hell-bent world. . . . The Year of the Flood is a slap-happy romp through the end times. Stuffed with cornball hymns, genetic mutations worth of Thomas Pynchon and a pharmaceutical company run amok, it reads like dystopia verging on satire. She may be imagining a world in flames, but she s doing it with a dark cackle. The Los Angeles Times

Thought-provoking, beautifully constructed, and rich with the imaginative flourishes for which [Atwood] is rightly famous. . . . A hugely entertaining and satisfying read. The Irish Independent

Prodigiously imaginative and outrageously funny. . . . Atwood s wit is biting. . . . Her brilliance dazzles. The Plain Dealer

Heart-pounding, mysterious and surprisingly touching. . . . She enchants us so convincingly that after her spell is over, the real world seems temporarily transformed. The Year of the Flood is both a warning and a gift. Jane Ciabattari, Books We Like, NPR.org

Atwood is a wry wizard at world-building. . . . Fans . . . should grab a biohazard suit, crawl into a hermetically sealed fallout shelter, and dive right in. The Christian Science Monitor

Funny. . . . Entertaining. . . . You fall into her intensely inventive world and find yourself carried happily along. Anthony Doerr, Orion Magazine

Atwood scores a 10. Philadelphia Inquirer

Atwood's latest is a fiercely imagined tale of suffering that rivals Job s. . . . As dark as Atwood's vision may be, the bonds among her women give her work a bittersweet power. People

Richly imagined. . . . Thought-provoking, unexpectedly funny and utterly original. The Denver Post

Engrossing and suspenseful. The New York Review of Books

Riveting. . . . Cunning, droll. . . . The intensity of her apocalyptic fantasy doesn t prevent Atwood from giving free rein to her peppery and inventive humor. . . . So she courts us with her puckish wit, holds us spellbound with suspense, and then confronts us with harrowing and tragic scenarios. The Kansas City Star

Atwood s language remains as juicy and colorful as ever. . . . [She] allows her imagination to roam rudely, widely, and vigorously where lesser minds fear to tread. Barnes & Noble Review

Vintage Atwood: It s artfully edgy, casting a pitiless eye on her fellow creatures. . . . A powerful indictment of the way human beings have long treated the planet and themselves. . . . The book takes big risks. Chicago Tribune

Mesmerizing. . . . Flood's relentlessly fabulous inventions and despondent predictions become almost unbearable, especially told in such gorgeously trenchant prose. In this way, the book recalls Atwood s 1985 masterpiece, The Handmaid's Tale. Time Out New York (five out of five stars)

Atwood unflinchingly holds aloft the sanctity of life for all species and the human quest for love. Chicago Sun-Times

With Atwood s characteristic brainy humor. . . . The Year of the Flood consistently does what one expects of any work by Margaret Atwood: It entertains, spins out suspense and rewards a reader's basic impulse, all the while subtly and expertly maintaining its literary respectability. Minneapolis Star Tribune

[An] entertaining, often mesmerizing, consciousness-raising novel. . . . This is a work that amuses, informs, enlightens and, remarkably, also challenges its readers to be better persons. San Antonio Express-News

[Atwood] is emerging as literature s queen of the apocalypse. . . . Fine. . . . Illuminating. . . . Gripping and scary, provocative and quite humorous. Associated Press

A marvelously absorbing novel. . . . Vivid and remarkably drawn. The A. V. Club

[With] Atwood s trademark wit and clarity of vision. The Dallas Morning News

Atwood's mischievous, suspenseful, and sagacious dystopian novel follows the trajectory of current environmental debacles to a shattering possible conclusion with passionate concern and arch humor. Booklist, starred review
