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.

One of the best books I've read

This was an option to read for my highschool AP class. When I read the info about it I was interested in reading this. I was so happy I read it because it was the only book I actually completely read in that class and enjoyed, and that means a lot considering I have A.D.D and can't STAND to read. Easily my favorite book.

Oryx and Crake

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!
