    Inhaltsangabe

    The long-awaited new novel from Margaret Atwood. The Year of the Flood is a dystopic masterpiece and a testament to her visionary power.  

    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. 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.

    Sad, beautiful and funny

    This is one of the few books that make you feel bad when they are over - because they are over too soon, regardless how long they are. Atwood writes about a sad and scary future in a lighthearted, and sometimes outright funny style. I liked the narrators too, they caught the feeling of the book just fine. The only downside are the sometimes quite silly songs, but the rest is just too good to make it less than five stars!

    Tolles Hörbuch

    Sehr liebevoll und spannend gemachtes Hörbuch. Alle Charaktere sind lebendig und abwechslungsreich "intoniert" - und die Gesänge sind sehr authentisch interpretiert. Es war mir ein Vergnügen zuzuhören - von Anfang bis Ende.

    Great story, annoying music

    Loved the story and the way it was told, but the speaker of Adam 1 and the songs were rather annoying. Would have preferred a simple audio book like the first part of the series.

    Spannend und aussergewöhnlich, zum Nachdenken

    Dieses Buch hat mich wegen seiner Aktualität zum Nachdenken angeregt. Es ist angenehm und spannend zum Hören und verbindet Bekanntes mit Neuem auf faszinierende Art und Weise.
