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.

5.0 Oryx and Crake
This is one of my favorite novels ever, and it’s the first book in one of my favorite trilogies ever. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read it since it came out. I’ve been in a reading slump recently, so I picked it up again because I knew that I would enjoy it. I still love it as much as I di...

3.5 Oryx and Crake (MaddAddam Trilogy, #1) by Margaret Atwood
26/12 - I found this a little bit tiresome to read for at least half the book. It wasn't until we started to see what had happened to bring about the apocalypse that I really got interested. And then Atwood finishes it just as a really exciting and mystery-revealing scene was about to happen, a bit ...

Reseña: Enero, 20153.5(Esta representación bellísima de Oryx salió de esta página y tiene más dibujos espectaculares basados en el libro. Mirenlas!)Después de terminar la trilogía, me doy cuenta de que el primero es el único flojo de los tres.Oryx es un personaje sin demasiada sustancia, pero quizá...
