Review, Synopsis, and Summary of the Novel The Year of the Flood

Margaret Atwood writes the Year of The Flood, and this novel is a sequel of her previous two novels “Oryx and Crake” and “MaddAddam”. The story revolves around a group of religious followers referred to as “God’s Gardeners”. Like her, every masterpiece novel, Margaret amazed everyone with this one too. It’s a different story based on a religious aspect as well as fiction. Fiction lovers will definitely enjoy this novel, just like I did.
