Oryx and Crake

Oryx and Crake is another beautifully written novel by Margaret Atwood with the usual spice of "men are evil and stupid" or is it "men are stupid and evil" and the usual screed about overpopulation. I despised the protaganist who is much like the protagonist in Catcher in the Rye. There is one chapter titled Asperger's U which was fairly funny. I don't know why she thinks humans reverting to the nature of bunnies, as she did here and in another novel where the forest takes over and absorbs the excess babies, is such a good goal.
