The Heart Goes LastThe Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


When society collapses, Stan and Charmaine are forced to live in their car and fend off gangs. They believe their lives are saved when they are accepted into the Positron Project in the town of Consilience where no one is unemployed and everyone gets a home. Alternating months that home is a prison where they serve as inmates. All, of course, is not what it seems and soon their relationship and their lives are put in danger. Atwood has compiled her previously published Positron stories into a complete novel. That may explain a couple of the jarring transitions and an ending I found somewhat unsatisfying, but overall it's an interesting story concept with strong ideas and powerful moments.

[I received an advanced reader copy of this through Netgalley. The book is due out September 29, 2015.]
