Oryx and Crake
- MaddAddam Trilogy, Book 1
- By: Margaret Atwood
- Narrated by: John Chancer
- Length: 12 hrs and 22 mins
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.
Engrossing, disturbing, amusing, entertaining

Oryx and Crake (Unabridged)
This is really worth listening to. Several important contemporary issues are explored in science fiction form, and the narrator delivers the story very well indeed.
