My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this world. Well, it is a bit grim but engagijng, a post-apocalyptic world where a man made plague has wiped out the human race (yes, it does sound, in the current times, like one of the wackiest conspiracy theories going round), with the run up to this (with corporations running the world including law and order, justice and health -sounds a bit familiar..) constituting the bulk of the story. The characters are believably human (with perhaps a couple of exceptions -'Blanco' was clearly more of a plot device than a person). The story was engaging and the world made sense in itself almost all the time. So far I've liked pretty much everything that I've read of Atwood's and, as I've recently found out, she is also a good person, with clear views on the right side of things.
