A futuristic novel writen by one of Canada's most well known authors.

The narrator of Atwood''s riveting novel calls himself Snowman. When the story opens, he is 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. He searches for supplies in a wasteland where insects proliferate and pigoons and wolvogs ravage the pleeblands, where ordinary people once lived, and the Compounds that sheltered the extraordinary. As he tries to piece together what has taken place, the narrative shifts to decades earlier. How did everything fall apart so quickly? Why is he left with nothing but his haunting memories? Alone except for the green-eyed Children of Crake, who think of him as a kind of monster, he explores the answers to these questions in the double journey he takes - into his own past, and back to Crake''s high-tech bubble-dome, where the Paradice Project unfolded and the world came to grief.

I've actually heard quite a lot about this book. When I was in highschool one of the parallel classes was reading this on their English lessons. As I had friends in this class I could often hear them complain about the book, because they had to read it, and it was all wierd. I've asked at least one of them afterwards if it was as bad as they made it sound. It wasn't, he said it was actually a good book even though it was somewhat wierd... the complaining had, as always just been complaining about having to do homework ;)

Thanks a lot, I do really look forward to read this book! :D

It was a long time waiting to be read, but a trip to Canada this summer prompted me to take the plunge. It was, as expected, a fascinating read. Sometimes, with reading matter, one needs a little nudge and I, for one, am grateful for it. Well deserving of praise.
