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.

The performance was incredible, but especially the ending which brought me to tears. I've never felt so emotionally involved in an audio book before and have been glued to it for days. Margaret Atwood is brilliant and the readers really brought the story to life. Hearing all the voices, you develop a relationship with the characters. Simply amazing.

Mare Barrow learned this all too well when Cal's betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart - and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like her - Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all... starting with the crown on Maven's head. But no battle is won alone, and before the Reds may rise as one, Mare must side with the boy who broke her heart in order to defeat the boy who almost broke her. Cal's powerful Silver allies, alongside Mare and the Scarlet Guard, prove a formidable force.

Loved the story. Performance had some hiccups especially around scene breaks within a chapter. Found myself having to go back a few times to follow what happened because those breaks were so subtle they were easy to miss. Otherwise awesome all around. Couldn't put it down.
