I almost always enjoy Atwoods work, and this collection was no exception. One tip if youre faint of heart, skip Hairball. I think the best story in the collection was the Death by Landscape. This isnt fluff, but if youre ready for some short pieces that will make you think, this is well worth your time.
Pretty good collection of short stories. Not Atwood's best, and more to the feminist politics rather than the sci-fi side of her writing. Many of the stories involve young women getting in terrible relationships with married men.
An electrifying series of stories whose shared themes of loss and discovery, of how we connect to others and with the sometimes hidden parts of ourselves, bind them together as a unified whole.....
Brilliantly rendered, the stories are richly layered, disturbing, poignant at times, scathingly witty at others. Margaret Atwood takes us into strange and secret places of the heart, and informs the familiar world in which we live with truths that cut to the bone.
These are some great short stories by a master storyteller.
this is a great book - had to read it for college but liked it anyway!
Ms. Atwood is a master of the short story. This book will introduce you to some of her finely crafted tales. Highly recommended!
If you enjoyed the Handmaid's Tale, you'll love this one!
Interesting book of short stories dealing with loss and discovery by the author of the Handmaid's Tale.
This is a collection of short stories, great examples of Atwood's unique style.
