Elizabeth Findley, February 19, 2014 (view all comments by Elizabeth Findley)
I didn't know I liked post-apocalyptic dystopian literature until I read Oryx & Crake, and each book of this trilogy is better than the last. Atwood's characters are funny and sad and a adrift in this strange--but also oddly familiar-- world of all-powerful corporations, genetically engineered animals and bizarre religions. The books are a cautionary tale about what might become of us if we stay on our current path. But they're also about powerful universal themes, like unrequited love, friendship and finding your place in the world, however strange that world might look.
