Oryx and Crake (MaddAddam #1)
With breathtaking command of her shocking material and with her customary sharp wit and dark humor, Atwood projects a conceivable future of the world, an outlandish yet wholly believable place left devastated in the wake of ecological and scientific disaster and populated by a cast of characters who will continue to inhabit listeners dreams long after the audiobook has ended. This is Margaret Atwood at the absolute peak of her powers. For those who listen to ORYX AND CRAKE, nothing will ever look the same again.
The outrageous imagination of Margaret Atwood has never been better. Dark, witty, scary and very credible, this is a mystery, an adventure story, a page-turner and a brilliant novel. Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and the Orange Prize.
Shortlisted for Orange Prize 2004. IMPAC Dublin Literary Award 2005.
