Oryx and CrakeAudiobook CD - 2003
Margaret Atwood's new novel is so utterly compelling, so prescient, so relevant, so terrifyingly-all-too-likely- to-be-true, that listeners may find their view of the world forever changed after listening to it.
With breathtaking command of her shocking material and with her customary sharp wit and dark humor, Atwood projects a conceivable future of the world, an outlandish yet wholly believable place left devastated in the wake of ecological and scientific disaster and populated by a cast of characters who will continue to inhabit listeners dreams long after the audiobook has ended. This is Margaret Atwood at the absolute peak of her powers. For those who listen to ORYX AND CRAKE, nothing will ever look the same again.

Castles were for keeping you and your buddies nice and safe on the inside, and for keeping everybody else outside
