Alias Grace (1996):

Two main voices, Grace herself and Dr Jordan, accompanied by a few secondary ones (mostly in the form of correspondence), tell the story of a celebrated murderess in 19th century Canada. They take their time and sometimes it feels too long (e.g. when Grace narrates her transition from Ireland to Canada) but mostly it works in a clever, subtle way: we expect to understand Grace, to get into her mind and finally learn the truth about the murders, but the more we learn, the less

This review is of Cat's Eye

OK, Atwood is a brilliant writer, however I am still deciding if the more interesting action towards the end of the book as well as the emotional self-awareness the protagonist finally develops makes up for a sense of tedium in the entire earlier half of the book.

Also, using a period st ...more

Finished Oryx and Crake. The first half of the book was a forced read (her random writings were like someone writing while on crack)but the second half of the book flowed wonderfully and was quite entertaining. I just might consider reading the other books in this trilogy now.
