" Towering and intrepid. . . . Atwood does Orwell one better." -- "The New Yorker

"" Her shuddering post-apocalyptic vision of the world . . . summons up echoes of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess and Aldous Huxley. . . . Oryx and Crake" "[is] in the forefront of visionary fiction." -- "The Seattle Times

"" Majestic. . . . Keep[s] us on the edges of our seats." -- "The Washington Post

Towering and intrepid. . . . Atwood does Orwell one better. "The New Yorker
" Atwood has long since established herself as one of the best writers in English today, but Oryx and Crake may well be her best work yet. . . . Brilliant, provocative, sumptuous and downright terrifying. "The Baltimore Sun
" Her shuddering post-apocalyptic vision of the world . . . summons up echoes of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess and Aldous Huxley. . . . Oryx and Crake" "[is] in the forefront of visionary fiction. "The Seattle Times
" A book too marvelous to miss. "The San Diego Union-Tribune
" Majestic. . . . Keeps us on the edges of our seats. "The Washington Post
" A compelling futuristic vision. . . . Oryx and Crake carries itself with a refreshing lightness. . . . Its shrewd pacing neatly balances action and exposition. . . . What gives the book a deeper resonance is its humanity. "Newsday
" [A] stunning new novel possibly her best since The Handmaid s Tale. "Time Out New York
" A delightful amalgam for the sophisticated reader: her perfectly placed prose, poetic language and tongue-in-cheek tone are ubiquitous throughout, as if an enchanted nanny is telling one a dark bedtime story of alienation and ruin while lovingly stroking one s head. "Ms.
" Truly remarkable. . . . As fun as it is dark. . . . A feast of realism, science fiction, satire, elegy and then some. . . . Atwood has concocted here an all-too-possible vision. . . . [She is] a master. "The News & Observer "(Raleigh, North Carolina)
A roll of dry, black, parodic laughter. . . . One of the year s most surprising novels. "The Economist
" Sublime. . . . Good, solid, Swiftian science fiction from a . . . literary artist par excellence. "The Denver Post
" Dances with energy and sophisticated gallows humor. . . . [Atwood s] wry wit makes dystopia fun. "People
" A crackling read. . . . Atwood is one of the most impressively ambitious writers of our time. "The Guardian
" Gorgeously written, full of eyeball-smacking images and riveting social and scientific commentary. . . . A cunning and engrossing book by one of the great masters of the form. "The Buffalo News
" A powerful vision. . . . Very readable. "The New York Times Book Review
" Brilliant, impossible to put down. . . . Atwood . . . is at once commanding and enchanting. Piercingly intelligent and piquantly witty, highly imaginative and unfailingly compassionate, she is a spoonful-of-sugar storyteller, concealing the strong and necessary medicine of her stinging social commentary within the balm of dazzlingly complicated and compelling characters and intricate and involving predicaments. "The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
" Original and chilling. . . . Powerful, inventive, playful and difficult to resist. "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
" Brilliantly constructed. . . . Jimmy and Crake grip like characters out of Greek tragedy. . . . Atwood herself is one of our finest linguistic engineers. Her carefully calibrated sentences are formulated to hook and paralyse the reader. "The Daily Telegraph
" Atwood does not disappoint. "The Dallas Morning News
" Gripping. . . . Bursts with invention and mordant wit, none of which slows down its headlong pace. . . . Atwood is in sleek form. . . . [Her] prescience is unsettling. "St. Petersburg Times
" Biting, black humor and absorbing storytelling. . . . Atwood entices. "USA Today
" Compelling. . . . Packed with fascinating ideas. . . . Her most accessible book in years, a gripping, unadorned story. "The Onion
" This superlatively gripping and remarkably imagined book joins The Handmaid s Tale" "in the distinguished company of novels (The Time Machine, Brave New World" "and 1984) that look ahead to warn us about the results of human shortsightedness. "The Times "(London)
Absorbing. . . . Atwood ahs not lost her touch for following the darker paths of speculative fiction she easily creates a believable, contained future world. "Seattle Weekly
" Engrossing. . . . A novel of ideas, narrated with an almost scientific dispassion and a caustic, distanced humor. The prose is fast and clean. "Rocky Mountain News
" Riveting and thought-provoking. . . . Keen and cutting. . . . [Atwood] has grown into one of the most consistently imaginative and masterful fiction writers writing in English today. "Richmond Times-Dispatch
