Reviews

"Captivating. . . . Thrilling. . . . Margaret Atwood [is] a living legend." --The New York Times Book Review

"Quintessential Atwood. . . . The writing here is so persuasive, so crisp, that it seeps under your skin." --The Boston Globe "An arresting perspective on the confluence of information, freedom, and security in the modern age." --The New Yorker "A gripping, psychologically acute portrayal of our own future gone totally wrong, and the eternal constant of flawed humanity." --Huffington Post "Dystopia virtuoso Margaret Atwood turns her effortless world-building, deft humor and grim commentary on the depths of human hubris to the prison industrial complex, love and free will." --The Denver Post

"Rare apocalyptic entertainment. . . . Not only does Atwood sketch out an all-too-possible future but she also looks to the past, tapping into archetypes from fairy tales and myth, giving the novel a resonance beyond satire." --The Miami Herald

"Another Atwood classic." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Poignant. . . . Gloriously madcap. . . . You only pause in your laughter when you realise that, in its constituent parts, the world she depicts here is all too horribly plausible." --The Guardian (London) "Engrossing." --The Austin Chronicle

"Wonderful. . . . Explores the idea of a powerful system and its discontents. . . . Atwood's The Heart Goes Last is a riveting addition to her oeuvre." --Electric Literature

"Atwood's creepy but entertaining vision of a possible future." --The Washington Times

"Fast-paced and funny. . . . True love ultimately endures in The Heart Goes Last, but so do the real terrors present in Atwood novels, all too often manifesting in ours." --PopMatters "Eerily prophetic. . . . A heady blend of speculative fiction with noir undertones that is provocative, powerful and will prompt all readers to reassess which parts of their humanity are for sale." --BookPage

"Ever-inventive, astutely observant, and drolly ironic, Atwood unfurls a riotous plot. . . . This laser-sharp, hilariously campy, and swiftly flowing satire delves deeply into our desires, vices, biases, and contradictions, bringing fresh, incisive comedy to the rising tide of postapocalyptic fiction . . . in which Atwood has long been a clarion voice." --Booklist (starred review)
