Oryx and Crake is a work of speculative fiction by literary star Margaret Atwood. Raised in a science-oriented household, Atwood is no stranger to the curiosities of the natural world and to topics concerning the essence of the universe. It is her extensive knowledge of life that Atwood brings to this novel. The story of opens with the end of the world as we have known it so far. Snowman is apparently the last man on earth with the exception of the Crakers, a new kind of people that Snowman is determined to protect. The Crakers have been created by Crake to replace the existing and fundamentally flawed human beings. The Crakers are designed to be better attuned to the new world that Crake envisions. The novel asks more questions than it answers, and becomes more timely with each new scientific breakthrough. The moral dilemmas that Atwood has invented for her story appear in the media nearly every day.
