Publisher's Summary

Margaret Atwood's classic novel, The Handmaid's Tale, is about the future. Now, in Oryx and Crake, the future has changed: it's much worse. The narrator of this riveting novel calls himself Snowman. When the story opens, he's 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. As he tries to piece together what has taken place, the narrative shifts to decades earlier. Why is he left with nothing but his haunting memories?

What the Critics Say

"Rigorous in its chilling insights and riveting in its fast-paced 'what if' dramatization, Atwood's superb novel is as brilliantly provocative as it is profoundly engaging." (Booklist)

    "Addictive Listening!"

    A magnificently crafted work that tells the tale of a future time with the central characters moving along parallel time lines from different starting points. Beautifully and cleverly narrated this book will have you gripped from the first sentence and quite unable to stop listening. Always a big fan of Margaret Atwood I was really pleased that the audible version of her book added so much more to the enjoyment of the story.
