Jimmy In Oryx And Crake

Satisfactory Essays
The main protagonist of Oryx and Crake is Snowman, who is later known as Jimmy. The story is relayed completely from his viewpoint, both from his reminiscent memories of his past as Jimmy and his current situation as Snowman. Jimmy was the best friend of Crake and was in love with Oryx. Jimmy is not a gifted scientist unlike his parents, Crake and everyone else but is talented with words. He thinks of himself as, “i’m not a numbers person” ( ch 4, pg 90) but rather a words person. Jimmy’s mother even mentions that, “Jimmy would do better at intellectual honourableness if only he would try harder”(ch 4, pg 84).
