MaddAddam (Review)
reviews / January 5, 2015

The dark humour and attention to detail that Atwood is known for is definitely one of the strong points of this book. It just made the crazy things happening seem more realistic. Really, it’s one of the best dystopias I’ve ever read, and I do love them, so that’s saying a lot.

The Spider (Review)
reviews / January 1, 2015

The Spider gives readers of the series a chance to see Gin, Finn, and Fletcher in a much earlier time in their lives, in more depth than the dreams and flashbacks that Gin normally has. It was really cool for me to get to see an early job of Gin’s, and to really get to know how she developed into the character that we met back in Spider’s Bite.

Heart of Venom (Review)
reviews / January 1, 2015

It’s been a long time coming, and there was a brief mention of it in an earlier book, but Heart of Venom finally allows us to see the trauma that Sophia went through to make her who she is, and the accompanying details of the beginning of her and Jo-Jo’s friendship with Fletcher.

Kiss of Venom (Review)
reviews / January 1, 2015

After the last book, I was starting to worry that maybe we wouldn’t see much of Owen anymore. Thankfully, though, he’s the narrator of this novella, so the reader gets a chance to see his side of the conflict with Gin and get some insight into what might happen in the future.
