Great book of intertwined stories,
This review is from: Moral Disorder (Paperback)
This is the first Margaret Atwood book I have read and I was very impressed. The writing was amazing and the short stories follow on from each other almost seamlessly. Each story portrays a different age - from childhood (with the birth of a younger sister) throughout life up until late middle age (with nursing an aged mother).
In fact the stories are so connected, I had actually lost sight of the fact that they were short stories - and therefore I was suprised when the voice changed half way through the book from the first to the third person. I had become used to the more personal approach and felt a little disappointed - it took a while to adjust to the new tone.
