The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood
This is the first book that I have read by this author that I have actually liked. In this dystopian society, Stan and Charmaine join an experimental community called the Positron Project in the town of Consilience in which they will spend every other month as either prisoners or citizens. It seems to be a fair way out of the poverty that they have found themselves in, but things turn out to be not so nice in niceville and Stan and Charmaine get caught up in the thick of it as she has an illicit affair with the man who lives in their house the other month - the alternate, and Stan finds out about it. Oh what a tangled web they all wind up in as this psychological experiment which is sometimes gruesome and other times humorous unfolds. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
