I couldn’t put it down. This is the fastest that I have ever been able to read a Margaret Atwood book, and maybe that is my problem with it. It reads more like an action novel, and less like a classic Margaret Atwood book: while it still has her poetic style, it is not as dense or intellectual as I am used to from her. It dedicates more to plot, less to creating mood.
It is a swashbuckling, nail biting adventure, beautifully written. It is not a moody mysterious cerebral story like the Handmaid’s Tale.
