FICTION 5 BOOK CLUB READS Top 40 MADDADDAM Margaret Atwood The world has been ravaged by a pandemic and a group of survivors have banded together. A few are former followers of a green religious cult known as God’s Gardeners, led by the still missing Adam One, while some are former activists and scientists with links to the bioterrorist group, MaddAddam. Others, however, have sur vived too – the Crakers, a group of genetically modified humans, bred with immunity to the man-made pandemic and the Painballers, a group of criminals with ultra-violent tendencies. Then there are the animals – the Pigoons, transgenic pigs originally bred to supply human organs, are dangerously smart and uncanny. As humans emerge from the flood of disease, how will society be reformed? There is not just the fight for survival but the choice of how and with whom to sur vive. Touching, funny and not too far in the future, MaddAddam is Atwood’s final book of the Oryx and Crake trilogy.
