Oryx and Crake

My complaint with the novel refers exclusively to the dearth of the title characters. They are but sketches in an otherwise lush detour of the apocalyptic decline. I noted previously that I find Ms. Atwood's prose enchanting. I still do. I was just troubled by the underdevelopment of what I consider to be the chief elements in this captivating novel.
