"Oryx and Crake"

My first book of the year, which I finished reading on the 10-hour plane journey back to Vancouver, was the 1984-esque novel, "Oryx and Crake" by Margaret Atwood. Set in a post-apocalyptic future, the book follows the efforts of one man (Snowman) to survive, as he reminisces about his life and the people he knew in his past.

The book was very good and posed some interesting ideas about the future of the planet. I liked the dialogue and was generally interested throughout. The only real let down was the ending, but overall it was a solid read and I would recommend it.

My rating: (3.0/5.0)
