    ITEM#: 2232925

    Margaret Atwood is the author of more than thirty-five works of fiction, poetry, and essays, published in more than forty countries. Her most recent works include the Booker Prize—winning novelThe Blind Assassin and Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer on Writing.Ms. Atwood lives in Toronto.
    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.

      The book arrived in excellent shape and quickly. It was an ok book. It dragged a little bit, but the characters were interesting.

      Verified Purchase

      I had to read the book for a class that I had a few years ago (belated in the O response). I recall that I enjoyed reading the book, and the plot was reminiscent of George Orwell's 1984. I would recommend this book to my friends.
