Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood

My rating: 2.0

Two sisters, Laura & Iris.  Laura dies in mysterious circumstances. The story of the two sisters is intermingled with excerpt from Laura's novel which was published posthumously. 

This book came highly recommended from two friends that I respect and generally align with their ratings. Unfortunately, not so in this case. This book was not for me. I stuck with it hoping it would somehow redeem itself and I regret every last minute I spent on it.


  1. I have read The Handmaid's Tale and The Heart Goes Last and vowed that I would never read another Margaret Atwood book. I know others love her books but they just aren't my cup of tea. There are too many more enjoyable books to read!

    1. Thanks for letting me know I am not alone in this :-)
