Customer Review

on 23 June 2006
I find with Margaret Atwood books that I either love them or hate them. Love: Handmaids Tale and Oryx and Crake. Couldn't get past first couple of chapters of Blind Assassin. This is one I loved, I just wished it was longer.

It seems like a snack of a book with only a few short chapters. It is funny, thoughtful and intriguing enought to make me dive into the Iliad.

I love the idea of taking a myth in hand and rewriting it from the ignored woman's perspective. I always enjoyed the fairy tales that switched to the wolf's perspective as well though.

I liked the take on the afterlife and yes I also enjoyed Helen being a bimbo. It really makes you wonder, why did he kill the maids?
