Good story but I don't like the ending.

I wanted a new beginning for Joan. It seems clear she'll repeat old patterns with a new person. Ending let me down.

A Feminist Romp

Margaret Atwood is most famous for her dystopias, but this lighthearted novel also gets at serious issues about femininity, bohemianism and the creative process. A fun listen, well read!

Another masterpiece by the master

Wonderful book that started in an interesting way and then evolved into a phenomenal story. Margaret Atwood has an imagination that is beautifully unique and this story displays it perfectly.
