The intricate dystopia presented in Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake follows lead character Jimmy through a series of flashbacks and current happenings. In the novel, Jimmy’s mother, Sharon, who was once an extraordinary microbiologist, is left depressed and dysfunctional. In this fictional world, she faces many troubles caused by husband, but I don’t believe these were at fault for her depression. The list of possible reasons for her depression is lengthy, but I believe that it is directly a cause of her change in environment and lifestyle, since an exceptionally intelligent person, like Sharon, should have been able handle the other changes. One plausible reason, which I believe is insignificant, is Sharon’s Husband’s “lab technician”, Ramona,
It’s because the world he lives in has affected him in such a way to be like this.

Winston too is weighed down by his own society; he is forced to be a lesser version of himself, all for Big Brother. They don’t do anything to physically change him, but if he is thought to break the rules or is simply too smart for his own good, off to the Ministry of Love.

This shows even more closely how similar it is to the horrifying monster Grendel, “Killing as often as he could, coming alone, bloodthirsty and horrible.” (pg.26, line 80-81); both monsters have the same goal.
The embryos that are selected to be in the lower caste (Gammas, Deltas and Epsilons) are deprived of oxygen and injected with alcohol to keep their intellect lower than the upper class (Alphas and Betas). With these modifications the government will then place the different classes to their appropriate job descriptions, jobs that these classes will adapt and learn to love. In the same way they will learn to despise the word “mother”. Mothers, fathers, and families do not exist in Brave New World because the word mother is viewed as a repugnant word. Suggesting it weakens the government, conflicting with its catchphrase “Everyone belongs to everyone else” (Huxley pg.
He would manipulate the citizens in order to acquire more power and he would destroy their fields and cities when he could not get his way, all the while being safely protected by guards.

Interviewee: Yeah. Interviewer: So, how did she go about that? Interviewee: Since she works at the hospital and she knows a lot of moms. She didn’t support it because people don’t eat healthy enough or eat right. She feels like if the baby has formula, they will have everything and all the nutrients that it needs, instead of trying to breast feed and you're not eating three times per day or you are not eating right.
The Raintree family is unstable and does not have the capabilities to support and keep it lively. “‘… we moved from one rundown house to another… And of course, we were always on welfare’” (2). Instead of their parents using the welfare-cheque for providing the needs of the family, they would lie and tell their children that they are to use it for medicine to cure their tuberculosis, even though it only goes to their alcohol addiction. Their parents would always drink alcohol until it comes to a point that they are disregarding and neglecting their children. “Cheryl and I always woke up before our parents, so I would tend to Cheryl’s needs” (3).
