Five Stars MaddAdam is exactly what the followers of this trilogy were looking for. This book ties all the ends together for us. It’s masterful, and shows how well planned out this series was! I got the ARC on Netgalley and was planning to have my review up as soon as it was released but I’m so excited to finally have all my thoughts together. O&C really have us the basis to this story. We learn about Crake, and Jimmy and the whole world. Then we wait and wait, and finally Year of the Flood comes in and we meet more characters, the gardeners, a whole bigger world. We experience things more emotionally, it’s stronger then O&C and it hurts more too. Finally, MaddAdam comes along, allow a final conclusion. It’s a slow beginning but it picks right up where both books left off. Picks it up and starts tying it together. Each strand has been previously addressed and now we’re hearing the stories. The stories of Zeb, the Stories of Adam, and the stories of Crake. We are finally getting all the little pieces to come to together and we start to have glimpses of what the whole picture really looks like. We’ve seen fragments, and some have been happy, others are sad, but we’ve been awaiting the full picture. MaddAdam is similar to Year of the flood in the way it’s broken apart by stories like YotF was broken apart by the feast days in Toby’s journal. I adore the idea of the folk tales, of the Crakes learning of themselves and of their world through these tales. Overall, this novel was wonderful, made me sob like a baby with Margaret Atwood’s amazingly emotional storytelling and reminded me why I love her books so much. This is a stratifying conclusion to the whole trilogy, and though it’s different, because it’s told by different  people and in a different section of time, it still resonates clearly with both of the previous books, and keeps the story arch strong and consistent! I really loved it, and am prepared to start all over again so it doesn’t have to end. ** I was given this book through NetGalley as a reviewer. **

I read O&C while on vacation in June and got After the Flood when I got back, which I promptly devoured. It drove me nuts that I had to wait until Sept. for the third book! I've just finished it and it was AMAZING! I laughed, I cried...no, really! I'm going to read it all again from the beginning. And continue to annoy my friends by telling them to READ THIS TRILOGY!

Atwood is one of my favorite authors and this trilogy is one of her most amazing works yet. Some people are foodies - I guess I'm a wordie - and her sensitivity to the nuance of words and language and human nature combined with her ability to use this skill to say something thought-provoking and perspective-changing leaves me simultaneously awestruck and inspired to write. So seldom do I feel changed after reading something anymore. With her writing, I feel I evolve. That said, if you prefer tidy, uncomplicated stories with tidy, uncomplicated characters where the good guys always win and it is always clear who the good guys are - Atwood is not for you.

Fantastic alternate reality book that integrates a lot of interesting environmental and scientific issues.

This book follows the same format as the other two before it. A story line which takes you back through the past of one of the main characters (Zeb in this case) mixed with the happenings of the present. I found Zeb’s story a bit more interesting than the rest but nothing that much more exciting that what was told in the past. All in all a good series which is interesting an a sci-fi way but if you’re looking for more of a post-apocalyptic read where you see the end of the world this isn’t really that type of book.

... if a touch sad at the ending. I find it charmingly clever how Atwood creates a story about stories, and fits it, quite naturally, into a work of speculative fiction. This MaddAddam series finale does a great job of providing the reader closure, and is another fine example of the author's craft-mastery. Thank you, Ms Atwood. Goodnight.

I have said those words to so many people regarding Atwood's Oryx & Crake, Year of the Flood, and Maddaddam. There is just so much good here. This book stands out in the series for exploring the nature of language, storytelling, and culture, while also continuing to offer dark insight on the current state of affairs, a vivid imaginative world of the future, and incredible characters. Toby is fascinating, and this book provides the most development of her, Jeb, and Adam One. So... you have to read these books.
