By the author of THE HANDMAID'S TALE and ALIAS GRACE * Pigs might not fly but they are strangely altered. So, for that matter, are wolves and racoons. A man, once named Jimmy, lives in a tree, wrapped in old bedsheets, now calls himself Snowman. The voice of Oryx, the woman he loved, teasingly haunts him. And the green-eyed Children of Crake are, for some reason, his responsibility. * Praise for Oryx and Crake: 'In Jimmy, Atwood has created a great character: a tragic-comic artist of the future, part buffoon, part Orpheus. An adman who's a sad man; a jealous lover who's in perpetual mourning; a fantasist who can only remember the past' -INDEPENDENT 'Gripping and remarkably imagined' -LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS

Una conmovedora historia sobre el último habitante del planeta en un inquietante mundo postapocalíptico. Primera parte de la llamada Trilogía de MaddAddam. Oryx y Crake es una inolvidable historia de amor y una conmovedora imagen de un cercano e inquietante horizonte postapocalíptico. Conocido como Jimmy antes de que el planeta se viese asolado por una serie de desastres naturales, Hombre de las Nieves llora la pérdida de Crake, su mejor amigo, y de la bella y esquiva Oryx, de quien ambos estaban enamorados, mientras lucha por sobrevivir en absoluta soledad sobre la faz de la Tierra. A merced de los elementos, acechado por los recuerdos y sin más compañía que la de los Hijos de Crake, esos seres de ojos verdes que lo consideran una especie de profeta, Hombre de las Nieves se pregunta cómo ha podido cambiar todo en tan poco tiempo y emprende un doble viaje hacia su pasado y hacia la burbuja de alta tecnología creada por Crake, el lugar donde empezó todo. La crítica ha dicho... «Un argumento que anticipa un futuro tan próximo que podemos olerlo desde aquí [...]. Atwood se ha superado a sí misma.» Georgia Straight «A la altura de las grandes distopías del siglo XX como Un mundo feliz, 1984 o Mercaderes del espacio en cuanto a su impacto dramático y fertilidad imaginativa. [...] Un retrato feroz de la globalización y de un mundo que se desgarra por sus costuras ecológicas [...]. Un libro majestuoso.» The Washington Post «Un amplio lienzo en el que Atwood luce su brillante talento para la sátira y los juegos de palabras, así como su considerable nivel de conocimiento del mundo natural.» Quill & Quiere «Un viaje narrativo de una viveza maravillosa.» National Post «Perfecta, divertida y satírica. Imaginativa y profética. Incluso apocalíptica y extrañamente plausible. [...]. Brillante.» Winnipeg Free Press «Los escritores contemporáneos raras veces escriben sobre ciencia o tecnología. Margaret Atwood aborda ambos campos -y muchos más- en una novela sorprendente.» The Economist

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Constance (Literaturwissenschaften), course: Margaret Atwood's Later Fiction, language: English, abstract: Margaret Atwood's novels The Handmaid's Tale (T.H.T., 1985) and Oryx and Crake (O. & C., 2003) are works of speculative fiction that are set in the near future. Both of the depicted scenarios take place in the U.S.A. and could be classified as "survivor's stories" as they are told from the perspective of a person that survived the new system or the catastrophe the books deal with. T.H.T. takes the reader into an oppressive system that has become reality in the year 2005. In this system women are divided into different kinds of "functional groups" according to their abilities. The story is told by the handmaid Offred who - as all handmaids - is still believed to be fertile. Thus she is solely good for childbearing and has not got any choice. This system however is confined to the United States so that there is still hope for an escape to a better life for the people living under the system. The scenario in O. & C. on the other hand occurs around the year 2025 and depicts a world wide catastrophe where Snowman - the narrator of the story - is one of the few surviving human beings. This paper will compare the two novels according to some points of analysis. I had to confine myself to a few themes as it is impossible to include all topics that could be of importance. To start with, I will take a look at the social and political background of the time the novels were written in, followed by a generic analysis of the works. Secondly I will answer the question about the inspiration for these novels and I will deal with the epilogues Atwood added to her books. This will be followed by a chapter about the main topics of the novels which are reproduction, religion and sexuality. Last but not least I will compare the main characters and discus

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,0, University of Rostock (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Proseminar: Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake. Contexts and Criticism, language: English, abstract: This essay sets out to analyze Margaret Atwood’s use of black humor and satire in her novel "Oryx and Crake". Furthermore, it examines the function of such. Especially this essay looks at Atwood’s intention to provide a satiric tone and black humor and shows that they are based on social observations and concerns that are evident in the early twenty-first century. To achieve this, the paper is structured into two main chapters. In the first chapter on "Black Humor and Satire" the author gives an overview of these terms, serving as a framework for further investigations. Additionally, the paper deals with laughter, to show which kind of laughter derives from Atwood's humor. In the next chapter on "Observations on Black Humor and Satire in Oryx and Crake", the paper focuses on the satirical tone and the black humor in the novel, based on the author's own reception of the text.

A trilogy bundle (three ebooks in one) of the internationally celebrated speculative fiction trilogy from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale. Across three stunning novels—Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood, and Maddaddam—the best-selling, Booker Prize-winning novelist projects us into a near future that is both all too familiar and beyond our imagining. In Oryx and Crake, a man struggles to survive in a world where he may be the last human. In search of answers, he embarks on a journey through the lush wilderness that was so recently a great city, until powerful corporations took mankind on an uncontrolled genetic engineering ride. In The Year of the Flood the long-feared waterless flood has occurred, altering Earth as we know it and obliterating most human life. And in Maddaddam a small group of survivors band together with the Children of Crake: the gentle, bioengineered quasi-human species who will inherit this new earth. Set in a darkly plausible future shaped by plagues, floods, and genetic engineering, these three novels take us from the end of the world to a brave new beginning. Thrilling, moving, and a triumph of imagination, the Maddaddam Trilogy confirms the ultimate endurance of humanity, community, and love.

The first book of the MaddAddam trilogy explores a world that has been devastated by ecological and scientific disasters. It is at once a love story and a compelling vision of the future. Snowman, known as Jimmy before mankind was overwhelmed by a plague, is struggling to survive in a world where he may be the last human, and mourning the loss of his best friend, Crake, and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved. In search of answers, Snowman embarks on a journey--with the help of the green-eyed Children of Crake--through the lush wilderness that was so recently a great city, until powerful corporations took mankind on an uncontrolled genetic engineering ride. --Adapted from publisher description.
