MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In my opinion the best of the trilogy. Perhaps because I now know all the characters and am used to the writing style.
This book explores Adam (Adam One) and his younger brother Zeb's childhood. How they fled from abusive parents and how Adam started his spying and the God's Gardner's Cult. And how Zeb befriended the young Crake (Glen) and taught him how to hack. How Glen's Father entrusted the viral pills to Pillar, before he was killed and she used Zeb to smuggle them out. How Zeb later used three of them to kill his own Father, and how when Pillar died she had the pills delivered to Crake (Glen) and that they are the foundation for his BlyssPluss pills.
The humans and the Pigoons team up to get rid of the Painballers, who are holding Adam captive. Unfortunately Adam and Jimmy (Snowman) are killed during the battle.
Zeb and Toby marry and several of the younger women get pg by the Crakers. Not sure what the point of that was as there were human men for the women to procreate with. And the young Cracker Blackbeard takes over writing Toby's journal after she leaves them.
