The Blind Assassin

The Blind Assassin - Margaret Atwood Another great read and phenomenal book from Margaret Atwood! Quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Her vocabulary and descriptive turns-of-phrases are levels above anyone I think I have ever read. And for the third book in a row (that I have read), Atwood does a fantastic job of crafting a story that entertains as well as making you think.

While The Blind Assassin starts off slower than other Atwood books that I have read, it is in no way less exciting that the others. Once things start to fall into place for the reader, it becomes a page-turner that you don't want to put down until you know the truth about everything and see if your hunches are, indeed, correct.

I would recommend either Oryx & Crake or The Handmaid's Tale for first time Atwood readers, but The Blind Assassin is definitely a must read for anyone who is a fan of hers.
