Although Woman on the Edge of Time was written in 1976, and Oryx and Crake and The Year of the Flood in 2003 and 2009, respectively, they are similar in their dystopian visions of the future. Perhaps reading the three novels within a span of a few weeks wasn’t the best idea – rather depressing – but I cannot get the world of Oryx and Crake out of my head.
Too many violent hands and hearts!
Dian, too sadly few like you —
For when a Species dies from Earth,
We die a little too.
