Gloriously madcap . You only pause in your laughter when you realise that, in its constituent parts, the world she depicts here is all too horribly plausible (Stephanie Merritt Observer)

Atwood's gift is to take what's already out there and nudge it to the next level . The Heart Goes Last is all at once thrilling, funny, grim - and shockingly convincing (Erica Wagner Harper’s Bazaar)
It is not a soothing read, although a compelling and darkly comic one - serious and sinister, subtle and shrewd . Atwood's mocking, cool, sceptical voice is as powerful as ever in this novel.

Not wishing to sound prudish, I would still say there is too much shabby and loveless sex and too few characters to care about.
A great story that I have no qualms in recommending to seasoned Atwood fans and those considering first dipping their toes in to the worlds she creates.
