Margaret Atwood’s The Blind Assassin wins by a frakking landslide, pretty much! Introducing our book for Round 7. :)
Basic plot semi-summary from Amazon.com:
The Blind Assassin is a tale of two sisters, one of whom dies under ambiguous circumstances in the opening pages. The survivor, Iris Chase Griffen, initially seems a little cold-blooded about this death in the family. But as Margaret Atwood’s most ambitious work unfolds—a tricky process, in fact, with several nested narratives and even an entire novel-within-a-novel—we’re reminded of just how complicated the familial game of hide-and-seek can be.
Not going to lie, I’m pretty excited about this one, you guys. Round 7 will start on MONDAY, October 4th, and will end two Mondays later, on October 18th.
Please let us know if that’s enough time for you to acquire a copy and read it. If it’s not, we’d be glad to consider a longer reading schedule.
