Among the early praise for The Rapture:
“A first-class apocalyptic thriller of futuristic science, geophysics, and religion. It's clever, intelligent, and—most terrifying of all—plausible”Jensen named her top 10 environmental disaster stories for the Guardian.
—Kate Mosse, author of Labryinth and Sepulchre
One novel on the list:
Oryx and Crake by Margaret AtwoodRead about all ten stories on Jensen's list.
Comedy and horror jostle for supremacy in this masterfully-conjured post-disaster novel. Genetically-modified animal species, defrosted tundras, and a new creation myth to explain it all to a new race of bio-engineered humans: wonderful. But Atwood has a deeper purpose, and while the narrative entertains, the big, dark ideas are whirring as furiously as a wind turbine in a hurricane.
