Fiction Fanatics: 'Oryx and Crake'

In this dystopian novel, Margaret Atwood brings us into a story of a character named Snowman, who lived under the influence of a scientist without a moral compass, named Crake. The novel takes us through their relationship in a series of flashbacks where we see the effects of the trends of pornography, genetic manipulation, and corporate corruption as they have developed in the future. The crisis of the action comes in the form of an enormous plague that destroys all of humanity except for a new race of genetically modified creatures.
