The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood

The Heart Goes LastThe Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Some things scare the hell out of me if I think about them too much. One of those things is greed and what would happen if we as a society stopped seeing each other as human beings, but instead really focused on money and power above all else. How would that affect you as a person who loves another person? This story explores one such possibility and the question of to what we choose to do with our own free will. This clever tale follows a couple in the supposedly not too distant future as they deal with the ultimate economic downturn and get caught up in a viscous cycle of systems doing what is “right” for those in power. It is the couple’s own heart which could be their final undoing.
