    With The Blind Assassin, Atwood proves once again that she is one of the most talented, daring, and exciting writers of the time. Like The Handmaid's Tale, this Book Prize-winner is destined to become a classic.

    Sarah says: "The Best!"
    "It made my ears bleed!"
    Overall

    I tried so hard to enjoy this piece. It was too long, too drawn out. You got to the point where you didn't care about the characters or their secrets.
    I finally said, "That's it"! I moved on to "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

    The year is 1896, the place, New York City. On a cold March night New York Times reporter John Schuyler Moore is summoned to the East River by his friend and former Harvard classmate Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a psychologist, or "alienist." On the unfinished Williamsburg Bridge, they view the horribly mutilated body of an adolescent boy, a prostitute from one of Manhattan's infamous brothels.

    lyl says: "Outstanding on several levels."
    "Great story."

    Would you listen to The Alienist again? Why?

    I read this book when it was first released. I enjoyed it then. Carr gives you a vivid look back into the New York of the distant past.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Guidall is a wonderful performer. I have listened to him read the Vince Flynn series. However,it drives me crazy that he does't pronounce his "th's"! At first I thought is was a character choice. It was not. It takes away from an otherwise excellent performance.
