Publisher 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.

Oryx and Crake

This book is more specifically speculative fiction, very well-researched, and something you might read in a college course. I recommend it to those looking for a hefty read. The writing style fits the narrative really well. It is dystopian and dark, so not for the faint of heart, and impressively progressive for being published in 2003.

Content warning: this story contains child trafficking, cursing, and a cliffhanger.

So strange

Strange and gross.
