Snowman may be the last man alive after a killer virus has decimated the world. In flashback, Snowman reveals his pre-plague world and the events leading to its inevitable devastation. In a society whose morality and ethics have fallen to the Great God Science, biotechies tampering with the genetic code have engineered brainless chickens with three breasts; designer babies; BlyssPlus, the Fountain of Youth in a pill; and a grotesque assortment of animals created for organ and tissue transplants. Campbell Scott’s husky, intimate tones intensify Snowman’s exhaustion and complement Atwood’s always credible scenario. Atwood’s impeccable storytelling offers tantalizing “what ifs” but no solutions. This is an important book by one of the great authors of our time read in the sexiest rasp since Frank Muller. S.J.H.
