So, we very briefly touched on this in class today, but I was interested in the parallels between Oryx and Crake and Xenogenesis. Clearly, the biggest parallel was that the human race ends up wiped out and reformatted against its will, for its own good (or so someone claims). The narration of both novels takes place at least mostly in the immediate aftermath.
Oryx and Crake
While reading Oryx and Crake, I was fascinated by the narrative structure that Atwood uses to tell her characters' story. At first, it was extremely confusing: it was difficult to tell the point at which Jimmy stopped and Snowman began. However, once I acclimated to this technique, I found it really interesting. After recognizing the differences between Jimmy and Snowman, I realized that pretty much every character has at least two identities, although they are not necessarily as clear-cut as those of the narrator.
