Description

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?

Critiques

"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)

Fantastic

I really enjoyed this title, it was so good that it only lasted 2 long listening sessions! I only wish there were more *unabridged* works from Margaret Atwood available at audible.

A breath taking dystopia !!!

One of the best end-of-the-world books out there. Atwood is a genius at storytelling, she moves from present to past like a boss

John Chancer really brings the story to life

What made the experience of listening to Oryx and Crake the most enjoyable?

This book works well as a standalone -- better than the other two books -- but it does get even better as part of the MaddAdams trilogy.

John Chancer does an excellent job bringing Jimmy and the crakers to life. When i think about the book I keep hearing his saying "Ohhh Jimmy" as the crackers, and it brings a smile to my face every time.

This is a book in which the narrator ads another layer to the story.

Storywise it tells you a lot about Jimmy but less about the world. The two following books flesh out the world better.

Good book and I highly recommend it.

I'll listen to anything read by John Chancer


As a Margaret Atwood fan, it was a double whammy to discover it read by another favorite, John Cancer. His warm voice kept me in my seat.

Grotesque objectification of women

Sexist view point of lead character and sickening themes of child pornography - couldn't finish it.
