In the gated community of Consilience, residents who sign a contract will get a job and a lovely house for six months of the year—if they serve as inmates in the Positron prison system for the alternate months…

Stan and Charmaine, a young urban couple, have been hit by job loss and bankruptcy in the midst of nationwide economic collapse. Forced to live in their third-hand Honda, where they are vulnerable to roving gangs, they think the gated community of Consilience may be the answer to their prayers. At first, this seems worth it: they will have a roof over their heads and food on the table. But when a series of troubling events unfolds, Positron begins to look less like a prayer answered and more like a chilling prophecy fulfilled.

I'm sorry to admit, but I gave up on page 104/416. Yes, the blurb was super good, the beginning of the book somewhat hooking, but the story just didn't keep me entertained. Events were far too prolonged, nothing in Positron was interesting..and all of it was rather a disappointment since I was expecting a lot from an Atwood. I did skim read further, bits and bobs from here and there, and I wasn't enticed to go back to where I left off. Not even the ending was good enough to make me regret the decision, so case closed, next book please! This one's ready to fulfill a wish :)
