Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale

Oryx and Crake
is at once an unforgettable love story and a compelling vision of the future. Snowman, known as Jimmy before mankind was overwhelmed by a plague, is struggling to survive in a world where he may be the last human, and mourning the loss of his best friend, Crake, and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved. In search of answers, Snowman embarks on a journey–with the help of the green-eyed Children of Crake–through the lush wilderness that was so recently a great city, until powerful corporations took mankind on an uncontrolled genetic engineering ride. Margaret Atwood projects us into a near future that is both all too familiar and beyond our imagining.

    I've read a lot Atwood's works and always thought she would make for a great science fiction writer. This novel proves it.

    I have over 40 books on my iPad since I purchased it. This is the only book that I couldn't get through. I read over half of the book to give it a viable chance. I found it slow and plotting. I found the plot to be nonexistent and halfway through there still didn't seem to be a purpose to the book. I would not recommend this book to anyone wanting to read a science fiction genre. Flip 513

    Unbelievable in it's nerve, riveting and not put downable! I didn't start out to read it....I was planning on Atwood's Maddadam but when I read that Maddadam was third in a trilogy, I semi-grudgingly started with the first in the trilogy. I'm so glad I did. I have now read all three in record time and they are not even 'my type' of genre. But the writing, fabulous story and lush vocabulary hooked me at once.....and has stayed with me....I don't want to start anything literary yet...I am having trilogy hangover!
