I picked up Gathering Blue at the library yesterday. I have to know what happens after The Giver!

Oryx and Crake is amazing. My fear is that the future will be some hideous combination of The Handmaid's Tale and Oryx and Crake. After all isn't the religious zeolotry of Handmaid's Tale and in its current form--those that don't believe in evolution/science--helping to lead us to a global environemnt like the one in Oryx and Crake?
