The Flood by Maggie Gee
Maggie Gee presents another dystopian novel where unending rain has flooded London, leaving the wealthy on the higher ground and the lower classes struggling in a partially submerged area called The Towers. The country is at war with a distant Muslim nation while the locals struggle to find a way to survive in their drowning city. The city prepares for a huge gala, despite a water-borne plague and a possible tidal wave to destroy it all. The Flood examines this struggle for survival amid government indifference from a variety of perspectives, and Maggie Gee even brings back members of the White family from her previous novel. Receiving mostly positive reviews, The Guardian says of The Flood, "But when it comes to desire, fear, madness and greed, Gee is unbeatable, her prose alternately lyrical and austere."
