Margaret Atwood is an author whose works are full of shifting perspectives-perspectives that sometimes make you ask yourself, 'What am I reading? Does it mean anything?' Throughout your read, you wonder if you're really going to understand the sense behind her dreamlike sentences, her endless metaphors and tons of similes.

And yet, you find she delights you while she's annoying you, enlightens you while she's driving you crazy. She's flowery with her language and yet she's unpretentious. Her reveries are relate-able and her messages are crystal clear.

'Murder in the Dark' is another eccentric, humorous and bizarre collection of prose poems and short fictions by this hardcore feminist author which is an ideal read for people who want to stir their brains in an unusual way!
