Wow, what to say about this one? One of the better dystopian books I've read. There's sort of a mystery embedded in it, and the ending was a big surprise for me. I like that the the "villain," Crake, is so complicated and not flat-out evil, as the bad guys usually are. His motivation is never really clear and it's hard to tell what exactly he's trying to do. I think we're going to discuss Oryx and Crake at one of our 20/30-something book group, and it should be really interesting.
