Earnest, cynical, scathing: With these varied narrative approaches, Bernadette Dunne, Bob Walter, and Robbie Daymond perfectly capture the complexities of Atwood’s last installment in her MaddAddam Trilogy. The first section of the audiobook provides a clear-eyed, nearly (maybe not quite) hopeful view of this postapocalyptic world so as to pull the listener in, regardless of any familiarity with the two previous titles. Subsequent sections dramatize all the horrors of human nature with harsh realism and suspense. All three narrators offer taut performances with grab-you-by-the-throat vocal energy, driving dialogue, and brutal momentum. Together, the three narrators create a dizzying, somewhat impressionistic, portrait of a future that contemporary humankind seems to be preparing itself for.
