Inhaltsangabe

Margaret Atwood's classic novel, The Handmaid's Tale, is about the future. Now, in Oryx and Crake, the future has changed: it's much worse. The narrator of this riveting novel calls himself Snowman. When the story opens, he's sleeping in a tree, wearing an old bedsheet, mourning the loss of his beloved Oryx and his best friend Crake, and slowly starving to death. As he tries to piece together what has taken place, the narrative shifts to decades earlier. Why is he left with nothing but his haunting memories?

Kritikerstimmen

"Rigorous in its chilling insights and riveting in its fast-paced 'what if' dramatization, Atwood's superb novel is as brilliantly provocative as it is profoundly engaging." ( Booklist)

Slow Start but nevertheless engaging & depressing

Should you be looking for something more light harded or optimistic - than better don't buy this book.
It's starts out melancholic and becomes more hopeless in tone with each page. The story is engaging and the narrator is doing a good job. So if you are in the mood for a somber tale, this is the book for you.
