Kristin's Reviews > The Penelopiad
It's been four years since I read it, but I still remember my distaste for this book. It was my first introduction to Atwood, and (sadly) it put me off her for two more years. I read the entire book in one two hour setting (I skipped the songs). Overall, I think I was just really disappointed; I had just finished reading The Odyssey, and I was super excited when I heard that this book had been published. I just found it boring; I couldn't feel sympathetic towards Penelope, I really couldn't get into the story, and I only finished it because I had nothing better to do that afternoon.
