Praise

“Captivating. . . . Thrilling. . . . Margaret Atwood [is] a living legend.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Quintessential Atwood. . . . The writing here is so persuasive, so crisp, that it seeps under your skin.” The Boston Globe

“An arresting perspective on the confluence of information, freedom, and security in the modern age.” The New Yorker
 
“A gripping, psychologically acute portrayal of our own future gone totally wrong, and the eternal constant of flawed humanity.” Huffington Post

“Dystopia virtuoso Margaret Atwood turns her effortless world-building, deft humor and grim commentary on the depths of human hubris to the prison industrial complex, love and free will.” —The Denver Post

“Rare apocalyptic entertainment. . . . Not only does Atwood sketch out an all-too-possible future but she also looks to the past, tapping into archetypes from fairy tales and myth, giving the novel a resonance beyond satire.” —The Miami Herald

“Another Atwood classic.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Poignant. . . . 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.” —The Guardian (London)

 “Engrossing.” —The Austin Chronicle

“Wonderful. . . . Explores the idea of a powerful system and its discontents. . . . Atwood’s The Heart Goes Last is a riveting addition to her oeuvre.” —Electric Literature

“Atwood’s creepy but entertaining vision of a possible future.” —The Washington Times

“Fast-paced and funny. . . . True love ultimately endures in The Heart Goes Last, but so do the real terrors present in Atwood novels, all too often manifesting in ours.” —PopMatters
 
“Eerily prophetic. . . . A heady blend of speculative fiction with noir undertones that is provocative, powerful and will prompt all readers to reassess which parts of their humanity are for sale.” —BookPage

“Ever-inventive, astutely observant, and drolly ironic, Atwood unfurls a riotous plot. . . . This laser-sharp, hilariously campy, and swiftly flowing satire delves deeply into our desires, vices, biases, and contradictions, bringing fresh, incisive comedy to the rising tide of postapocalyptic fiction . . . in which Atwood has long been a clarion voice.” —Booklist (starred review)
