Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood

Sorry but Atwood's latest book was a swing and a miss for me. The premise is a down-and-out married couple in a time where there is a lot of that and living in their car. They respond to a TV advertisement to come live in a controlled community where they will have all they desire. Of course they sign up for that and of course it is not all that.
I found the characters as rigid and sterile as the prosti-robots they were making in the story. The possibilities for them were there in the story but were not taken.  The only character I wanted more of was Connor, the bad boy brother but he wasn't in the story much.
What did you think?
