Oryx & Crake
Let's see, I really did not enjoy this story at all, and to be truthful, I couldn't even finish it. The only part I liked because it made me laugh was the names of all the new animals and the combination words. The attitude of the character Snowman/Jimmy towards women made me angry. Although I do agree with her underlying statement of how progress, if abused, could be the end of line for humankind. I guess I believe she could have made the same statement in a different kind of story. One not so. . . bleak. . .R rated. . . dramatic. . . maybe one with more science fiction to it and not so much. . . reality bites.
