Read in June, 2008

Not Atwood's best work... but even her lesser efforts are well worth the time. This one suffered from rather heavy-handed characterization: the good gals were a little too good (and certainly too naive), the evil too evil, and the men a little too closely akin to puppets. She also had some trouble tying up the plot: When the bad guy (gal) has died before the book opens, what do you do for an encore? Nonetheless, Atwood's command of language is just remarkable and her insights into the workings of women's minds always enjoyable.
