Críticas:

"[Written with] energy, inventiveness, and narrative panache. . . . A gripping and visceral book that showcases [Atwood's] pure storytelling talents." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"[The Year of the Flood] shows the Nobel Prize-worthy Atwood . . . at the pinnacle of her prodigious creative powers." --Elle

"A heart-pounding thriller." --The Washington Post Book World

"Leave it to Atwood to find humor in a post-apocalyptic world as she covertly, and brilliantly, addresses questions of how we need to live on an imperiled planet." --Kansas City Star

"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

"Timely and gripping. . . . Atwood tells a good story, one filled with suspense and even levity." --USA Today

"Enthralling. . . . Memorable characters, a tightly controlled pace and shockingly plausible scenes make it fly--to a mysterious, skin-prickling ending." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Atwood renders this civilization and these two lives within it with tenderness and insight, a healthy dread, and a guarded humor." --O, the Oprah Magazine

"Atwood spins the most arresting alternate mythologies to our hell-bent world. . . . The Year of the Flood is a slap-happy romp through the end times. Stuffed with cornball hymns, genetic mutations worth of Thomas Pynchon and a pharmaceutical company run amok, it reads like dystopia verging on satire. She may be imagining a world in flames, but she's doing it with a dark cackle." --The Los Angeles Times

"Thought-provoking, beautifully constructed, and rich with the imaginative flourishes for which [Atwood] is rightly famous. . . . A hugely entertaining and satisfying read." --The Irish Independent

"Prodigiously imaginative and outrageously funny. . . . Atwood's wit is biting. . . . Her brilliance dazzles." --The Plain Dealer

"Heart-pounding, mysterious and surprisingly touching. . . . She enchants us so convincingly that after her spell is over, the 'real' world seems temporarily transformed. The Year of the Flood is both a warning and a gift." --Jane Ciabattari, "Books We Like," NPR.org

"Atwood is a wry wizard at world-building. . . . Fans . . . should grab a biohazard suit, crawl into a hermetically sealed fallout shelter, and dive right in." --The Christian Science Monitor

"Funny. . . . Entertaining. . . . You fall into her intensely inventive world and find yourself carried happily along." --Anthony Doerr, Orion Magazine

"Atwood scores a 10." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"Atwood's latest is a fiercely imagined tale of suffering that rivals Job's. . . . As dark as Atwood's vision may be, the bonds among her women give her work a bittersweet power." --People

"Richly imagined. . . . Thought-provoking, unexpectedly funny and utterly original." --The Denver Post

"Engrossing and suspenseful." --The New York Review of Books

"Riveting. . . . Cunning, droll. . . . The intensity of her apocalyptic fantasy doesn't prevent Atwood from giving free rein to her peppery and inventive humor. . . . So she courts us with her puckish wit, holds us spellbound with suspense, and then confronts us with harrowing and tragic scenarios." --The Kansas City Star

"Atwood's language remains as juicy and colorful as ever. . . . [She] allows her imagination to roam rudely, widely, and vigorously where lesser minds fear to tread." --Barnes & Noble Review

"Vintage Atwood: It's artfully edgy, casting a pitiless eye on her fellow creatures. . . . A powerful indictment of the way human beings have long treated the planet and themselves. . . . The book takes big risks." --Chicago Tribune

"Mesmerizing. . . . Flood's relentlessly fabulous inventions and despondent predictions become almost unbearable, especially told in such gorgeously trenchant prose. In this way, the book recalls Atwood's 1985 masterpiece, The Handmaid's Tale." --Time Out New York (five out of five stars)

"Atwood unflinchingly holds aloft the sanctity of life--for all species--and the human quest for love." --Chicago Sun-Times

"With Atwood's characteristic brainy humor. . . . The Year of the Flood consistently does what one expects of any work by Margaret Atwood: It entertains, spins out suspense and rewards a reader's basic impulse, all the while subtly and expertly maintaining its literary respectability." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"[An] entertaining, often mesmerizing, consciousness-raising novel. . . . This is a work that amuses, informs, enlightens and, remarkably, also challenges its readers to be better persons." --San Antonio Express-News

"[Atwood] is emerging as literature's queen of the apocalypse. . . . Fine. . . . Illuminating. . . . Gripping and scary, provocative and quite humorous." --Associated Press

"A marvelously absorbing novel. . . . Vivid and remarkably drawn." --The A. V. Club

"[With] Atwood's trademark wit and clarity of vision." --The Dallas Morning News

"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, starred review

Reseña del editor:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale

Set in the visionary future of Atwood’s acclaimed Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood is at once a moving tale of lasting friendship and a landmark work of speculative fiction. In this second book of the MaddAddam trilogy, the long-feared waterless flood has occurred, altering Earth as we know it and obliterating most human life. Among the survivors are Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, who is barricaded inside a luxurious spa. Amid shadowy, corrupt ruling powers and new, gene-spliced life forms, Ren and Toby will have to decide on their next move, but they can't stay locked away.
