Read in January, 2008

I was thrilled when I first found Margaret Atwood's books about two years ago, and as I've been slowly working my way through them I've started to become disillusioned that they all seem to be similar to each other. The last one I read before this was the Robber Bride, and both books have a kind of annoying habit of having the main (female) characters think obsessively about other peripheral females who have wronged them or hurt them in some way. I got tired of hearing about Zenia in Robber Bride, and tired of Elaine expecting to see Cordelia around every corner in this story. As always, Atwood's observations of life and descriptions of common feelings and experiences in clear language are artful and give you that wonderful feeling of recognizing something in a character that you thought only you had ever felt. I'm not done yet exploring other Atwood novels, but am ready for something different than these last two!
