What other readers are saying about this title:
Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
A grim, frightening vision of the future with a ravaged earth and genetic engineering run amok, Oryx and Crake is not a book you’ll soon forget. There are basically three characters: Jimmy, the sex-addicted "normal", Crake a brilliant scientist/geneticist and Oryx a former child sex slave. We only see inside Jimmy’s head and so Crake’s motives are not known as he decides to take the problem of overpopulation into his hands and uses people’s obsession with sex to undo them leaving his new, improved humans: the "Crakers" to populate the earth. Chilling.
