    In Other Worlds: Science Fiction and the Human Imagination is Margaret Atwood’s account of her rela­tionship with the literary form we have come to know as science fiction. This relationship has been lifelong, stretch­ing from her days as a child reader in the 1940s through her time as a graduate student at Harvard, where she explored the Victorian ancestors of the form, and continuing with her work as a writer and reviewer.

    Would you try another book from Margaret Atwood and/or Susan Denaker and Margaret Atwood ?

    Maybe, only if the first chapter was avalible for free.


    What could Margaret Atwood have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not narrate, the book sounds like one of my worst english professors. Dry, redundant and full of personal opinion. Her style of oration is slow jagged and similar to a desiccated corpse.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is only commentary and her personal opinion, there is no real story and her opinion is long winded and filled with circular arguments based on semantics and the categorization of genre.
