    "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. Oryx and Crake is a speculative fiction novel by Margaret Atwood, the award-winning author of The Handmaid's Tale."

    "The MaddAddam Trilogy is an excellent trilogy of novels, and this first part of the trilogy, Oryx and Crake, gets things off to a fascinating start. Not just a must-read for science-fiction fans, Margaret Atwood succeeds in telling a gripping story that forces me to reflect on humanity. Remember, this is just the first part of the trilogy, not the whole thing, but you'll want the whole trilogy after reading Oryx and Crake!"

    "While this book is partially fiction, it's wonderfully written. Books like this could help others realize what could possibly happen if they ignore climate change. The most interesting part about this book is how massive the consequences were for ignoring the signs. Great read and in certain cases, educational."

    "This factual book is very interesting, it is based on our reality that we don't see. Story is described vividly and it has a very unique style of writing. I can say that this is a book that is worthy reading it, and knowing what is happening in our world. "

    "Oryx and Crake feels really poorly written to me. It's such a slow moving story and the characters are boring in my opinion. I wouldn't recommend this. "

    "I enjoy sci fi and biopunk books. Oryx and Crake (MaddAddam Trilogy) is a great start of a book series. Margaret Atwood is quite a writer. "

    "This book is a must read! It simply can't be beat. You won't be dissapointed. There is nothing better than taking a long bath while reading this book. "

    "Its a great novel, story of 2 men and a woman. "
  • Laura Knight
    Written on April 14, 2018
    "This novel, the first in Margaret Atwood's dystopian trilogy, is a fascinating, dark and thought-provoking ride. Perhaps overshadowing the story itself, Atwood's world forces the reader into tremendous moral reflection. We are made to question the nature of exploitation, the meaning of social consent and whether effort for the greater good can ever be divorced from emotional self-interest. In terms of bigger picture message, if not story, the first book reminds me of Hugh Howey's mesmerizing Wool series. The story centers around Jimmy, also called Snowman, assumed to be the lone survivor of a plague that destroyed humanity. His companions are Crakers: a society of unworldly humanoid experiments designed to eliminate the perceived flaws of normal homo sapiens. The Crakers see Snowman as a relic and link to the "before" times as well as their source of knowledge about their creator, Crake. Jimmy has given the Crakers an origin story, that while false, is something he feels they can mentally grasp. The enigmatic Oryx is the novel's most interesting character primarily because she is so difficult to understand. She is the love interest to both Jimmy (Snowman) and Crake. "

    "Award winning Margaret Atwood will take you on a futuristic story, of love, loss, and adventure. Snowman, Jimmy, will travel in search of answers after the world he's known had been ravaged by a genetic engineering. This story will seem more familiar than one might think."

    "Uh-oh. SJW warning: Powerful corporations have [done something evil] and blah blah blah. This drek was on my recommended list from Amazon. I have no idea why; probably because I love post-apocalyptic fiction. Just trash."

    "Margaret is a fantastic author as I love her previous books a lot! The story is extremely engaging, well-written, interesting, and extremely well-developed. There's no wrong she can do to me and i think this book is simply fantastic! Pick it up today."
  • John Schneider
    Written on February 5, 2018
    "Oryx and Crake (MaddAddam Trilogy) is an unnerving and exiting tale of a young man trying to survive the plague. Atwood excells at painting a picture of a dystopia future that is eerily reminiscent of our own modern day problems."
  • Brittany Welch
    Written on March 6, 2018
    "I'm a huge fan of The Handmaid's Tale and decided to give this a try. They're by the same author, after all. However, I didn't care much for this. Atwood is typically innovative, but this book is very contrived, from the characters to the plot. The book does flow well, which helps, but only a little."
  • Wayne Hopkins
    Written on May 1, 2018
    "Margaret Atwood uses her considerable talent to create an unforgettable love story in Oryx and Crake, a compelling and provocative look into the near future. Atwood not only tells a fascinating story but compels the reader to reflect on the exploitation of the Earths natural resources. The cataclysmic consequences of climate change are all too real in perhaps Atwood's best book to date."
