's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: dystopian

The Snowman might just be the last human left alive, apart from Crake's children.

The stupid humans were messing around with genetics again, to say nothing of creating creatures. Now it's all gone terribly wrong.

Atwood's skill in leaking pieces of information, allowing the reader to guess at what has happened, what might happen before hitting them with what does happen is that of a master storyteller. Kept me turning pages long after my bedtime, and this book not only works as dystopia, but thriller and romance.
