From the Publisher: The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God's Gardeners-a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life-has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have survived: Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, a God's Gardener barricaded inside a luxurious spa where many of the treatments are edible. Have others survived? Ren's bioartist friend Amanda? Zeb, her eco-fighter stepfather? Her onetime lover, Jimmy? Or the murderous Painballers, survivors of the mutual-elimination Painball prison? Not to mention the shadowy, corrupt policing force of the ruling powers. Meanwhile, gene-spliced life forms are proliferating: the lion/lamb blends, the Mo'hair sheep with human hair, the pigs with human brain tissue. As Adam One and his intrepid hemp-clad band make their way through this strange new world, Ren and Toby will have to decide on their next move, but they can't stay locked away. By turns dark, tender, violent, thoughtful, and uneasily hilarious, The Year of the Flood is Atwood at her most brilliant and inventive.… (plus d'informations)

This is set in a dystopia future. Not my typical genre and I think these characters were formed in other books. However, I really liked it. It is a story that resonates after reading. IT has unique characters and events and Atwood does a great job in telling you the world but in a way that you have to think about it and help create it. Seems like great technique in avoiding exposition.

This story is about a pandemic. In a highly exaggerated way, it gives a mirror to our current culture.

The poems between the chapters were great, but I can't be the only one that began to skip them. ( )

I do not often write reviews for the books that I've read, however, since I wrote such a rant for "Oryx and Crake", which was the first book about this world, I felt that I should comment on this one as well.

Since reading "Oryx and Crake," I've also read "The Handmaid's Tale," which I thought was -very- good, and which gave me far more faith in Margaret Atwood and the idea that she can write a bloody good book when she wants to. That, and my boyfriend's insistence that this book provides an ending to Jimmy/Snowman's story from "Oryx and Crake," is the reason that I finally got around to reading this book. And I have to say that I was not -completely- disappointed.

This book doesn't end, which is what I was promised before I read it, however it does provide some closure for "Oryx and Crake," albeit not all that much. However, "Year of the Flood" did provide a new perspective of the world Atwood created in "Oryx and Crake" through Toby and Ren. It was fun (fun seems too happy a word for this, but I can't think of a better one) to revisit the world that Atwood created with "Oryx and Crake," since it was so complex and fascinating. Also, "Year of the Flood" provides more of a look at God's Gardeners, who are really no more than mentioned in passing in "Oryx and Crake." "Year of the Flood" gave her previously created world more dimension and made it seem even more realistic and plausible. This plausibility makes it frightening and intense, and extremely interesting to read.

Overall, I have to say that I liked this book more than "Oryx and Crake," if only because maybe I'm beginning to get used to Atwood's writing style. However, to anyone who wants to read "Year of the Flood" I would definitely suggest that you finish "Oryx and Crake" first, because that order makes the most sense, I think. ( )

Una eminente ficción distópica sobre la amistad de dos mujeres que sobreviven a la extinción del planeta. Segunda parte de la llamada Trilogía de MaddAddam. Las predicciones de Adán Uno, afable líder de los Jardineros de Dios, se han hecho realidad, y el Diluvio Seco ha asolado el planeta y parece haber acabado con toda traza de vida humana. Solo dos mujeres parecen haber sobrevivido a la gran catástrofe natural: Toby, que se ha atrincherado en un balneario de lujo, y Ren, una joven artista de trapecio encerrada en Colas y Escamas, un distinguido club donde trabajan «las chicas guarras más limpias de la ciudad». Y mientras Toby y Ren deciden cuál será su siguiente paso, en el mundo exterior campan a sus anchas los gobernantes corruptos y proliferan las nuevas especies transgénicas, que amenazan con destruirlo todo. El año del Diluvio, que es tierna y sombría a partes iguales, nos descubre a la Margaret Atwood más brillante e imaginativa.

I found The Year of the Flood to be overall underwhelming. It’s a sort of prequel/sequel/adjacent story to Oryx and Crake. It failed to offer the same scientific intrigue as the first book set in this world. Instead, there were environmental preachings through the facade of a religious cult which included feast day sermons and hymns. The characters remained interesting, but the plot development was so slow, and I don’t feel this book added much to the world.

The Year of the Flood follows two women who were part of the same religious cult called God’s Gardeners. The Gardeners warned about the coming of the second flood – this time, an invisible flood instead of a physical one. They also encouraged their practitioners to be vegan and to learn and practice things in a more organic, earthy way. Toby began her life outside the Gardeners and was brought to them, while Ren was with them most of her childhood, then left.

The pacing is a real struggle because there is so much lead up to the actual time with the Gardeners. The first 15% or so of the book could have been cut entirely. In fact, most of the book is backstory on the women to show how they got where they are. In Oryx and Crake, this made more sense because Jimmy’s story showed the coming of the true dystopia as he watched things come together and then fall apart. Here, it’s almost fan fiction. The women on their own are intriguing enough, but because we already know so much of the world, their own stories don’t add anything. They’re also contrasting romantic/sexual stories… sort of. One is of hiding and eventually vengeance against a man who repeatedly raped one of them, the other of a broken heart.

What bothers me the most about the two weaving storylines – other than the complete lack of momentum – is that neither is really resolved. Even though things happen, they weren’t dramatic enough to offer a true sense of closure. And the frequency of which both men intertwined within each of the women’s lives called out too many coincidences for me. I know a story like this isn’t meant to be realistic, but generally speaking the world should press on the unbelievable, not the plot.

The Year of the Flood required a lotto patience. Oryx and Crake did too, but I at least felt that the book delivered on some level. The Year of the Flood doesn’t deliver anything worth your time, but it does describe repeated rape, infidelity, drug use, gruesome murders that exist for no reason, and more.

Give it a pass. ( )

Om Margaret Atwoods ”Syndaflodens år” kommer att räknas till de stora framtidsskildringarna går inte att säga ännu, men potentialen finns.
 
In Hieronymus Bosch–like detail, Atwood renders this civilization and these two lives within it with tenderness and insight, a healthy dread, and a guarded humor.
 
"The Year of the Flood" is a slap-happy romp through the end times. Stuffed with cornball hymns, genetic mutations worthy of Thomas Pynchon (such as the rakuunk, a combined skunk and raccoon) 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.
 
Personally, though, I prefer Atwood in a retro mood. I’d easily take “Alias Grace” or “The Blind Assassin” over the lucid nightmares of “The Handmaid’s Tale” or “Oryx and Crake.” But fans of those novels should grab a biohazard suit, crawl into a hermetically sealed fallout shelter, and dive right in.
 
Canada's greatest living novelist undoubtedly knows how to tell a gripping story, as fans of "The Blind Assassin" and "The Handmaid's Tale" already know. But here there's a serious message, too: Look at what we're doing right now to our world, to nature, to ourselves. If this goes on . . .

THE GARDEN

Who is it tends the Garden,
The Garden oh so green?

’Twas once the finest Garden
That ever has been seen.

And in it God’s dear Creatures
Did swim and fly and play;

But then came greedy Spoilers,
And killed them all away.

And all the Trees that flourished
And gave us wholesome fruit,

By waves of sand are buried,
Both leaf and branch and root.

And all the shining Water
Is turned to slime and mire,

And all the feathered Birds so bright
Have ceased their joyful choir.

Oh Garden, oh my Garden
I’ll mourn forevermore
Until the Gardeners arise,
And you to Life restore.

From The God’s Gardeners Oral Hymnbook

Maybe sadness was a kind of hunger, she thought. Maybe the two went together.
“Who lives here?” she says out loud. Not me, she thinks. This thing I’m doing can hardly be called living. Instead I’m lying dormant, like a bacterium in a glacier. Getting time over with. That’s all.
