CotC on Margaret Atwood’s Year of the Flood

Elliot at Claw of the Conciliator seems poised to return to at least semi-regular blogging (or so we can hope!). The other day he had a good post on Margaret Atwood’s Year of the Flood, the second book in what I believe is supposed to be a projected trilogy about a world of bioengineering and environmental degradation have run amok. I recently read both YOTF and its predecessor Oryx and Crake and enjoyed them both immensely. As Elliot points out, Atwood deals with some very interesting religious and philoosphical issues in these books, including putting the story of a sect of radical eco-Christians at the center of the second book.
