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.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Handmaid's Tale

Oryx and Crake
is at once an unforgettable love story and a compelling vision of the future. Snowman, known as Jimmy before mankind was overwhelmed by a plague, is struggling to survive in a world where he may be the last human, and mourning the loss of his best friend, Crake, and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved. In search of answers, Snowman embarks on a journey–with the help of the green-eyed Children of Crake–through the lush wilderness that was so recently a great city, until powerful corporations took mankind on an uncontrolled genetic engineering ride. Margaret Atwood projects us into a near future that is both all too familiar and beyond our imagining.
