The Year of the Flood (MaddAddam #2), by Margaret Atwood
In a way, "Year of the Flood" begins & ends in the same place as Oryx & Crake, but follows a different set of characters. The storytelling is still poetic, tight, & well-paced, & the characters are still dynamic & three-dimensional & interesting. I like how the difference in the POV characters is reflected in the narration between the two books (and within Year of the Flood as narration alternates between two very different characters). An excellent follow-up to O & C; I'm looking forward to seeing how she wraps it all up in MaddAddam.
