The two sequels to Margaret Atwood's Orix & Crake (The Year of the Flood and MaddAddam) were pretty disappointing. The characters weren't as interesting, there weren't many new developments, it felt rather long-winded, the antagonists have only gotten shittier (for no reason whatsoever, we never get their part of the story), and there's a bunch of forced drama mixed in for good measure.

Such a pity, the first novel was brilliant.
