#TuesdayBookBlog #bookreview for The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood

The Blind Assassin is a long book by today’s standards. My paperback copy is 637 pages, but every one of them is a joy to read.

The writing is exquisite, each detail and description thoughtful and showing the fertility of Atwood’s imagination.

Iris Chase is remembering her sister Laura’s mysterious death, 50 years after the event. I loved Iris’s voice. Her dry humour and way of commenting on her life both now and in the past was amusing and entertaining to read.

Set against the backdrop of 20th century social history this is the story of two sisters, their secrets and is fascinating throughout.

Being a Booker Prize winner it doesn’t need me to recommend it but I do because it was recommended to me and I’m thankful for that.

A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon.

Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her passion for people watching and her overactive imagination! Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage.
