Oryx and Crake, by Margaret Atwood, 374 pages
It is a post-apocalyptic future, where the world has been killed by a virus and Jimmy, or Snowman, is left alone with a group of manufactured humans called Crakers. It is a long, tragic tale of how Jimmy came to be Snowman and the reader hears his story, along with those of Oryx and Crake, his lover and best friend.
Margaret Atwood is a brilliant writer, and this book will make you want to hear the rest of the story by finishing the trilogy.
