    Where did the real Margaret Atwood go?

    Let me preamble by saying that I am a huge Margaret Atwood fan, especially her anti-utopian books like Oryx and Crake and The Handmaids Tale. Thus, I was very excited to read this new offering, making my disappointment that much more intense. The premise was totally irrational and illogical. The main characters were, for the most part, unlikeable and uneven. The plot felt like a mash-up of multiple unrelated ideas that were hoisted up off the cutting-room floor. The best thing I can say about this book is that the prison idea was certainly original but more because it made no sense at all. The sex-bot thing was more derivative and totally unrelated and oddly jammed into the plot. Ms. Atwood, what happened? This is not your usual glorious soulful prose. I hope this is only an anomaly that we can tuck away in the back of the shelf behind such brilliance as Alias Grace, Cats Eye and the Robber Bride.

    The Heart Goes Last

    It is becoming more and more difficult to enjoy the tongue-in-cheek, post economic collapse existence that Margaret Atwood would have us embrace. Maybe it's time to revert to stories of individual chaos and eccentricity. Just one economically disenfranchised individual's point of view.

    Great read

    Well written. Kept me wanting to read more. Great mix of science fiction and mystery blended together. Perfect book for sleepless nights or that rainy day. Good job Margaret.

    The Heart Goes Last

    Another excellent Atwood dystopian science-fiction. Stranger than fiction because it's likely coming true right under our noses. Can't wait for the next one!

    Whats a great book

    Part Utopian part dystopian. An original idea written by the incomparable Margaret Atwood. Love, sex, suspence. And chickens. It doesn't get much better than this. Atwood is in fine form
