A little slow for Atwood but her writing is impeccdable


Top gun of the literary world

This book is for people who like a book to be brilliantly written. It's description and characters are second to non. The story itself is set out like a cryptic jigsaw that all becomes apparent once it is pieced together. You don't get much better than this.

I was mesmerized by this book. I generally don't like Margaret Atwood, mostly because I find the whole "oppressed woman" genre tiresome. I think this book was also an "Oprah's book pick," which is usually another bad sign. So the book had two strikes against it before I even cracked it open, but I enjoyed it immensely.
