Atwood does it again. I will admit, I’m a little behind the curve on Atwood. Last year I finally read Handmaid’s. I’ve been wanting to start Oryx & Crake forever, but something else always popped up. When I saw Alias Grace on Netflix I had to read it first. I’m glad I did. It’s a remarkable novel that covers a range of genres. Atwood is so capable of telling a complete story in any time while keeping her style, complex characters and charming wit. I love that there is always a subplot that never tangles with the main plot in the sense that it confuses anything, but rather lives on its own in the story, and, while woven flawlessly amongst the main plot, has its own space to develop without hindering the story. Everything Atwood does is a testament to her brilliance as a storyteller. It doesn’t slow down. I rarely listen to an audio book when I’m not in the car. I finished this in 3 days, most of it in the house.
Gadon’s performance is spot on. Her nuanced accent for Grace conveyed the character’s full history. Other characters were simply brought to life in a fulfilling and convincing way.
I will now begin tearing through everything Atwood has ever written... if you’ll excuse me.
