I really enjoyed this book by Atwood, one of my favorite authors. Atwood convincingly and thoroughly shapes a possible future that's viewed by two female characters, Toby and Ren. Unlike Oryx and Crake, which had a narrow narrator focus and a rather oppressive atmosphere, this book has a hopeful, warm tone. Atwood also seems to have a confident grip on the details of this future world, seamlessly integrating details without disrupting the narrative flow. I hope that there is indeed a third book coming in this "trilogy" - I will definitely read it.
