"Oryx and Crake"
By: Margaret Atwood,
2003, 464 pages,
I've read books by Margaret Atwood before. I know that they are generally dystopian novels. So, I was prepared for that when I picked up "Oryx and Crake". (And when I saw it sitting there on a take-a-book-leave-a-book shelf, I knew I would be taking it.)
I really enjoyed reading "Oryx and Crake". At first, I wasn't sure what to think about it. And to be honest, the only thing I really disliked about it was the ending. But, I'm not going to tell you about that because then I would spoil the book for you.
"Oryx and Crake" is a dystopian novel, and it's a pretty good one. It's always interesting to me how I manage to pick up a book that is dealing directly with something I have been thinking about for awhile, and that's the case with "Oryx and Crake".
I think that you should read it, even if you're not a fan of Atwood or the dystopian novel. It will still give you something to think about. There are also certain features of the novel that I wish existed, for example, the game "extinction". But, I would like to know what would happen if I eradicated all mosquitoes from the planet. Would it really be so bad?
