Atwood is able to convey the main character's resignation and despair throughout the book.
The context is also weak described in bits and pieces during the narration. We know that the setting is a university town in what once was the US. We know that

An easy read.
Although I finished it in two days, (5 minibus' rides), it was more because it was easy to read than that the whole story was interesting.
Narrated in first person it depicts the havoc that a tragedy creates in the life of the narrator. B

It was an entertaining read.
One may argue that a story about the people inmersed in the production of a dictionary ought to be boring.

But is not.

Since the beginning of the novel words, and their meaning and their use, have a center stage. Some of t

Ernesto shared a quote
El diccionario como un reflejo de sus autores. Nunca lo había pensado asi.
The Great Passage by Shion Miura
“The dictionary’s very flaws made the exertions and enthusiasm of its compilers real to his imagination. The vast array of words—entry words, definitions, examples—was cold and impersonal at a glance, yet the book as a whole was the result of people puzzling over their choices.”
Shion Miura

Esperaba que éste sea un libro de filosofía light, pero resultó ser mucho más que eso.

Salman Rushdie
“And all the time she held on to me; like a mother protecting her child, she shielded me from my family. (Who were learning … as I was … that they were not …)”
Salman Rushdie, Midnight's Children

Nicholas Carr
“The mounting evidence of an erosion of skills, a dulling of perceptions, and a slowing of reactions should give us all pause. As we begin to live our lives inside glass cockpits, we seem fated to discover what pilots already know: a glass cockpit can also be a glass cage.”
Nicholas Carr, The Glass Cage: Automation and Us

Nina Nenova
“So we arrive at this paradoxical situation: the calmer your surroundings, the more frantic and turbulent you become on the inside. As if under a lid and with no valve to let out the steam.”
Nina Nenova, The Capital of Latecomers

Walter Isaacson
“«Los ordenadores de hoy son idiotas brillantes”
Walter Isaacson, Innovadores (Innovators-SP): Los genios que inventaron el futuro

Nicholas Carr
“Automation weakens the bond between tool and user not because computer-controlled systems are complex but because they ask so little of us.”
Nicholas Carr, The Glass Cage: Automation and Us
