it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction

Like all of Margaret Atwood's novels, Cat's Eye follows a particular structure: we are introduced to a woman in the present who, through flashbacks, reveals a traumatic event in her past that has profound repercussions to this day. However, in this book, the focus of the past event is on female friendships formed in childhood and changed in adolescence -- a resonant topic for me and, as always, described beautifully by Atwood. I'm not sure I believe all the changes of heart and behavior into adulthood, but overall I found it easy to immerse myself in this book and enjoy it.
