Book 3
La última y emocionante entrega de MADDADDAM, la gran trilogía distópica de Margaret Atwood aclamada a nivel internacional.

Meses después de que la pandemia del Diluvio Seco haya borrado a casi toda la humanidad de la faz de la Tierra, Toby y Ren han rescatado a su amiga Amanda de las garras de los despiadados paintbalistas. Juntas, regresan a la cabaña de los locoadánidas. Cuyo reticente profeta, Jimmy -Hombre de las Nieves-, debilitado a causa de la fiebre, hace que Toby tenga que predicar la teología de los crackers. Zab, por su parte, ha estado buscando a Adán Uno, fundador de los Jardineros de Dios, la religión ecologista y pacifista de la que él mismo se desvinculó años atrás para guiar a los locoadánidas en su resistencia activa contra la acción destructora de SegurMort.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Months after the Waterless Flood pandemic has wiped out most of humanity, Toby and Ren have rescued their friend Amanda from the vicious Painballers. They return to the MaddAddamite cob house, newly fortified against man and giant pigoon alike. Accompanying them are the Crakers, the gentle, quasi-human species engineered by the brilliant but deceased Crake. Their reluctant prophet, Snowman-the-Jimmy, is recovering from a debilitating fever, so it’s left to Toby to preach the Craker theology, with Crake as Creator. She must also deal with cultural misunderstandings, terrible coffee, and her jealousy over her lover, Zeb.

Zeb has been searching for Adam One, founder of the God’s Gardeners, the pacifist green religion from which Zeb broke years ago to lead the MaddAddamites in active resistance against the destructive CorpSeCorps. But now, under threat of a Painballer attack, the MaddAddamites must fight back with the aid of their newfound allies, some of whom have four trotters. At the center of MaddAddam is the story of Zeb’s dark and twisted past, which contains a lost brother, a hidden murder, a bear, and a bizarre act of revenge.

Combining adventure, humor, romance, superb storytelling, and an imagination at once dazzlingly inventive and grounded in a recognizable world, MaddAddam is vintage Margaret Atwood – a moving and dramatic conclusion to her internationally celebrated dystopian trilogy.
Book 2
Una eminente ficción distópica sobre la amistad de dos mujeres que sobreviven a la extinción del planeta. Segunda parte de la llamada Trilogía de MaddAddam.

Las predicciones de Adán Uno, afable líder de los Jardineros de Dios, se han hecho realidad, y el Diluvio Seco ha asolado el planeta y parece haber acabado con toda traza de vida humana. Solo dos mujeres parecen haber sobrevivido a la gran catástrofe natural: Toby, que se ha atrincherado en un balneario de lujo, y Ren, una joven artista de trapecio encerrada en Colas y Escamas, un distinguido club donde trabajan «las chicas guarras más limpias de la ciudad». Y mientras Toby y Ren deciden cuál será su siguiente paso, en el mundo exterior campan a sus anchas los gobernantes corruptos y proliferan las nuevas especies  transgénicas, que amenazan con destruirlo todo. El año del Diluvio, que es tierna y sombría a partes iguales, nos descubre a la Margaret Atwood más brillante e imaginativa.        

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The long-awaited new novel from Margaret Atwood. The Year of the Flood is a dystopic masterpiece and a testament to her visionary power.

The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God’s Gardeners—a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life—has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have survived: Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, a God’s Gardener barricaded inside a luxurious spa where many of the treatments are edible.

Have others survived? Ren’s bioartist friend Amanda? Zeb, her eco-fighter stepfather? Her onetime lover, Jimmy? Or the murderous Painballers, survivors of the mutual-elimination Painball prison? Not to mention the shadowy, corrupt policing force of the ruling powers . . .

Meanwhile, gene-spliced life forms are proliferating: the lion/lamb blends, the Mo’hair sheep with human hair, the pigs with human brain tissue. As Adam One and his intrepid hemp-clad band make their way through this strange new world, Ren and Toby will have to decide on their next move. They can’t stay locked away . . .

By turns dark, tender, violent, thoughtful, and uneasily hilarious, The Year of the Flood is Atwood at her most brilliant and inventive.
