Oryx and Crake: Book Review The novel Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood is a captivating story about a world where genetic engineering has predominated, and a virus purposefully engineered has wiped out nearly all of humanity. Margaret Atwood, aside from being an author, is also a well-known environmental activist as well as the inventor of the Longpen. Environmentalist ideals as well as technological advances are incorporated as main theme throughout the novel, as she takes the reader into a world where we have gone too far with technology and have genetically manipulated everything from crops, to animals, and eventually even humans. Atwood takes us into this dark future through the eyes of Jimmy, the books main character. As Jimmy reflects on his life and hardships, we get insight into genetic advancements that are not as far-fetched as they once were. Atwood introduces us into her version of where the future may be headed through Crake, a genius geneticist which is ultimately responsible for the extinction of humans. Atwood makes very clear what our fate might be should we continue to develop rapidly and without respect for humans, animals, and nature as they are. The story begins as Jimmy narrates his life, and what used to be. From his runaway mother, to his barely present father and step-mother his life seems very bland and he finds refuge and acceptance with Crake.

Keen and cutting. Was it a conscious decision to have a male protagonist for Oryx and Crake, or did Snowman simply present himself to you?

A: Snowman did present himself to me, yes, dirty bedsheet and all. For this novel, a woman would have been less possible. If we are writers, we all have multiple selves.
