I have not read Atwood before. And this one I actually listened to as an audiobook, which is interesting because the story itself deals with storytelling and points of view. This featured three different actors reading the parts corresponding to the points of view. This is the third book, but I have not read the other two and still enjoyed this science fiction story of a post-apocalyptic world which also deals with the circumstances leading up to it. I found it intriguing in the ways it dealt with technology, corporations, religion and environmentalism as all having their good and bad.
