Book review: Oryx and Crake

Oryx And CrakeOryx And Crake by Margaret Atwood

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I actually read Year of the Flood before this book, which is the wrong order but I don't think it makes too big a difference.

Margaret Atwood's vision of society in the not too distant future and post apocalyptic world is terrifyingly possible. Big corporations running the world is the natural conclusion of business today and Atwood is clearly concerned about where genetic engineering is heading. Although the world she creates is appallingly abhorrent, I love being immersed in it. Atwood's command of the English language makes reading even squeamish topics enjoyable.

I love the story and the characters and how its written which makes it, in my opinion, a perfect book.
