Snowman is sitting in a forest, surrounded by rather naive and simplistic people he calls Crakers – and whom he feels strangely responsible for. Slowly, he takes us back to a time when he was Jimmy and to his friendship with a guy called Crake, his obsession with a woman called Oryx and a world filled with strange animal splices and powerful corporations.
Oryx and Crake is an excellent read. It’s well-written, interesting and has great characters. What more can I say?
