The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God's Gardeners--a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life--has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have survived: Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, a God's Gardener barricaded inside a luxurious spa where many of the treatments are edible.

Margaret Atwood sits alone on my personal pedestal for dystopian writers. The first time I read Handmaid's Tale, my life begin to tilt just a little. From that point forward, I couldn't help reading books written in a similar vein through an Atwood filter - everything referenced her work. Reading the Hunger Games, I kept drifting to Oryx and Crake, though the two had very little in common besides their post-apocalyptic setting. Admittedly when I started reading The Year of the Flood, I didn't realize it was a parallel storyline, but the first time I heard the word 'rachunk', I knew I was back. This is the sort of book that stayed with me when I wasn't with it. I'm not sure I'll be able to shake it for a while.
