    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!"
    "What a complex book!"
    Overall

    I found this book to be complex (in a good way), with beautiful language. At first I was so engrossed by the different plots interwoven together that I didn't notice that overall the book is about a family tragedy. Wondering "which one is it!?" kept me going for a long time.

  • Nobody's Fool

    Story
    (199)

    Divorced from his own wife and carrying on halfheartedly with another man's, saddled with a bum knee and friends who make enemies redundant, Sully now has one new problem to cope with: a long-estranged son who is in imminent danger of following in his father's footsteps. With its sly and uproarious humor and a heart that embraces humanity's follies as well as its triumphs, Nobody's Fool is storytelling at its most generous.

    Steve says: "Russo is a genious."
    "Reminds me of home"
    Overall

    I'm from a midwest town that had a population of 651 during my growing-up years. Even though the book was written about a small town in the eastern US, I feel like I know some of the characters in this book. My parents still live in my small town and are the age of some of the major characters in this book. I can picture them having some of the same conversations as people in this book. This is my first Richard Russo book and I'm looking forward to listening to another by him.
