Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood

As per normal with the majority of Atwood’s book it’s was a bit of a slow start from myself… it always takes me a bit of time to get in to them. This is in no way critical of her writing for the story at all, it’s simply just how it’s always been for me, but I always continue on as I know there is will be a point when I begin to devour the words.

I would compare it to a new cuisine that you are unsure of, try a little bit at a time, then all of a sudden it’s all you can think about and all you want to consume for a few weeks.

I loved the format of this book the most and how you were taken on the journey by two narrators and only given snippets of information to go on. You only find out the truth when the main characters do, it’s like you are remembering along with Grace as she uncovers the memories she lost about the whole incident.

Overall a great book and one to give a go if you like a bit of murder, grit and a feisty female protagonist.
