I actually didn't enjoy this book as much this time around as when I first read it, and I considered giving it three stars, but it's still enjoyable. My problem with it is that Atwood seems to focus too much on the ideas and not enough on the actual story - this book lacks a lot of the delicious prose that makes her such a wonderful writer. So I guess this rates maybe a 3.5 - a good book on its own, but not quite up to Atwood's usual level of quality.
