Prescient and inventive (Tracy-Ann Oberman)
** 'A tour de force . . . as pacy as a thriller . . . laced with Atwood's dry wit, and her savage, credible invention (Erica Wagner, The Times)
** 'Atwood knows how to show us ourselves, but the mirror she holds up to life does more than reflect . . . The Year of the Flood isn't prophecy, but it is eerily possible (Jeanette Winterson)
** 'Margaret Atwood has outdone - and outsung - herself this time. The Year of the Flood is at once a solemn praise song to human hope and a dead-serious poke at our capacity for self-destruction . . . Shows Atwood at the pinnacle of her prodigious creative power s' Elle (** 'A sharp observer of the female psyche . . . Atwood's richly fertile imagination plays to exuberant and often comic effect')
Caroline Moore, Daily Telegraph (** 'A gripping and visceral book that showcases her pure storytelling talents with energy, inventiveness and narrative panache')
'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)
'A tour-de-force ... laced with Atwood's dry wit and her savage, credible invention.' (The Times)
'Everything she forms in words has substance and weight.' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Another stimulating dystopia from this always-provocative author, whose complex, deeply involving characters inhabit a bizarre yet frighteningly believable future.' (Kirkus Reviews)
'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) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I do have the final story of the trilogy downloaded but I'm going to leave it a while before I return to this world.
Having said all of that, I still read it all because I was desperate to reach the point where Snowman is reintroduced and so something must have worked for me within its pages...
I found the sermons at the beginning of each chapter slightly boring but enjoyed seeing characters change and develop. I'm looking forward to reading the last book in the series!
