Staff Review:

Snowman (once called Jimmy) is the last remaining human among a genetically engineered population of gentle humanoids. Using his life as a framework, the reader is taken through the fall of humanity and the roles played by humans Oryx and Crake, Jimmy's lover and best friend, respectively. The novel, though possessing a dark foundation, is surprisingly funny and fascinating. This is the first novel in the Maddaddam trilogy.
