disappointing futuristic story
the only thing I liked about Margaret Atwood's Year of the Flood, was the cover, which is beautiful. I am a great fan of her early works, Handmaid's Tale and Surfacing, which made my disappointment in this book even more surprising to me. I found the story trite and overloaded with religiosity. the main characters were one-dimensional and never fully developed. the pseudo-environmentalism was very heavy-handed. Sorry, Margaret,but you can do better.
