The Heart Goes Last Ebook

The Heart Goes Last A Novel (eBook): Atwood, Margaret: - The Heart Goes Last From the Hardcover edition. Margaret Atwood puts the human heart to the ultimate test in an utterly brilliant new novel that is as visionary as The Handmaid's Tale and as richly imagined as . From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale Stan and Charmaine, a young urban couple, have been hit by job loss.

Open eBook Preview. Stan and Charmaine are a married couple trying to stay afloat in the midst of an economic and social collapse. Job loss has forced them to live in their car, leaving them vulnerable to roving gangs. They desperately need to turn their situation around—and fast. The Positron Project in the town of Consilience seems to be the answer to their prayers. No one is unemployed and everyone gets a comfortable, clean house to live in. On alternating months, residents of Consilience must leave their homes and function as inmates in the Positron prison system. Once their month of service in the prison is completed, they can return to their "civilian" homes. At first, this doesn't seem like too much of a sacrifice to make in order to have a roof over one's head and food to eat. But when Charmaine becomes romantically involved with the man who lives in their house during the months when she and Stan are in the prison, a series of troubling events unfolds, putting Stan's life in danger. With each passing day, Positron looks less like a prayer answered and more like a chilling prophecy fulfilled.

Charmaine with her golly-gee whiz outlook was trite and tiresome--the dumb blonde. I think writing this story from brother Connor's point of view might have been refreshing. This author has a huge following, and I did read The Handmaid's Tale, but after this experience, I won't be joining the ranks of devotees.

Maybe this is an example of writers who gain popularity and become sloppy about results Stephen King producing pages instead of plot. Like n naneek Feb 13, I always read Margaret Atwood - it's a rule!

I did enjoy this book but it isn't my favourite. I still find her earlier work the most compelling. However, the thing about Margaret Atwood is that even though she is setting books in the future, there is a scary reality. Like b BWilsoned Oct 05, Charmaine is a Pollyanna-esque woman who tries to see the good in every situation. Stan, her husband, does not. They aren't exactly opposites, but there's quite a gap; however, when they have the opportunity to join Consiliance and the Positron Project, a chance that includes a home, jobs, enough food, both Stan and Charmaine sign on, even if Stan is more wary.
