Oryx And Crake Book Description:

By the author of THE HANDMAID'S TALE and ALIAS GRACE * Pigs might not fly but they are strangely altered. So, for that matter, are wolves and racoons. A man, once named Jimmy, lives in a tree, wrapped in old bedsheets, now calls himself Snowman. The voice of Oryx, the woman he loved, teasingly haunts him. And the green-eyed Children of Crake are, for some reason, his responsibility. * Praise for Oryx and Crake: 'In Jimmy, Atwood has created a great character: a tragic-comic artist of the future, part buffoon, part Orpheus. An adman who's a sad man; a jealous lover who's in perpetual mourning; a fantasist who can only remember the past' -INDEPENDENT 'Gripping and remarkably imagined' -LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS

Oryx y Crake Book Description:

Una conmovedora historia sobre el último habitante del planeta en un inquietante mundo postapocalíptico. Primera parte de la llamada Trilogía de MaddAddam. Oryx y Crake es una inolvidable historia de amor y una conmovedora imagen de un cercano e inquietante horizonte postapocalíptico. Conocido como Jimmy antes de que el planeta se viese asolado por una serie de desastres naturales, Hombre de las Nieves llora la pérdida de Crake, su mejor amigo, y de la bella y esquiva Oryx, de quien ambos estaban enamorados, mientras lucha por sobrevivir en absoluta soledad sobre la faz de la Tierra. A merced de los elementos, acechado por los recuerdos y sin más compañía que la de los Hijos de Crake, esos seres de ojos verdes que lo consideran una especie de profeta, Hombre de las Nieves se pregunta cómo ha podido cambiar todo en tan poco tiempo y emprende un doble viaje hacia su pasado y hacia la burbuja de alta tecnología creada por Crake, el lugar donde empezó todo. La crítica ha dicho... «Un argumento que anticipa un futuro tan próximo que podemos olerlo desde aquí [...]. Atwood se ha superado a sí misma.» Georgia Straight «A la altura de las grandes distopías del siglo XX como Un mundo feliz, 1984 o Mercaderes del espacio en cuanto a su impacto dramático y fertilidad imaginativa. [...] Un retrato feroz de la globalización y de un mundo que se desgarra por sus costuras ecológicas [...]. Un libro majestuoso.» The Washington Post «Un amplio lienzo en el que Atwood luce su brillante talento para la sátira y los juegos de palabras, así como su considerable nivel de conocimiento del mundo natural.» Quill & Quiere «Un viaje narrativo de una viveza maravillosa.» National Post «Perfecta, divertida y satírica. Imaginativa y profética. Incluso apocalíptica y extrañamente plausible. [...]. Brillante.» Winnipeg Free Press «Los escritores contemporáneos raras veces escriben sobre ciencia o tecnología. Margaret Atwood aborda ambos campos -y muchos más- en una novela sorprendente.» The Economist

Margaret Atwood s The Handmaid s Tale and Oryx and Crake A Comparison Book Description:

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Constance (Literaturwissenschaften), course: Margaret Atwood's Later Fiction, language: English, abstract: Margaret Atwood's novels The Handmaid's Tale (T.H.T., 1985) and Oryx and Crake (O. & C., 2003) are works of speculative fiction that are set in the near future. Both of the depicted scenarios take place in the U.S.A. and could be classified as "survivor's stories" as they are told from the perspective of a person that survived the new system or the catastrophe the books deal with. T.H.T. takes the reader into an oppressive system that has become reality in the year 2005. In this system women are divided into different kinds of "functional groups" according to their abilities. The story is told by the handmaid Offred who - as all handmaids - is still believed to be fertile. Thus she is solely good for childbearing and has not got any choice. This system however is confined to the United States so that there is still hope for an escape to a better life for the people living under the system. The scenario in O. & C. on the other hand occurs around the year 2025 and depicts a world wide catastrophe where Snowman - the narrator of the story - is one of the few surviving human beings. This paper will compare the two novels according to some points of analysis. I had to confine myself to a few themes as it is impossible to include all topics that could be of importance. To start with, I will take a look at the social and political background of the time the novels were written in, followed by a generic analysis of the works. Secondly I will answer the question about the inspiration for these novels and I will deal with the epilogues Atwood added to her books. This will be followed by a chapter about the main topics of the novels which are reproduction, religion and sexuality. Last but not least I will compare the main characters and discus

The MaddAddam Trilogy Book Description:

From Booker Prize–winner and #1 national bestseller Margaret Atwood, The MaddAddam Trilogy is so utterly compelling, so prescient, so relevant, so all-too-likely-to-be-true, that readers may find their view of the world forever changed after reading it. This is Margaret Atwood at the absolute peak of her powers. With breathtaking command of her brilliantly conceived material, and with her customary sharp wit and dark humour, she projects us into an outlandish yet wholly believable realm populated by characters who will continue to inhabit our dreams long after the last chapter. In the tradition of The Handmaid’s Tale, Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood envision a near future that is both beyond our imagining and all too familiar: a world devastated by uncontrolled genetic engineering and a widespread plague, with only a few remaining humans fighting for survival. Combining adventure, humour, romance and superb storytelling that is at once dazzlingly inventive and grounded in a recognizable world, MaddAddam is a moving and dramatic conclusion to this internationally celebrated dystopian trilogy.
