(No, not really, but I do have a question.)
I’m about seventy pages into the book (I know, slowpoke), but I was just wondering, for the people that have been able to read fairly into the book: which part are you more interested?
“The Blind Assassin” is often described as having a novel-within-a-novel, and while I do enjoy the voice of Iris, I think I’m more attached to the sci-fi story (laden with an illicit affair!). I don’t know if it’s the format of the story (lack of quotation marks, yet there having a clear delineation as to what is being said and what is being narrated). I think the idea is also very interesting, as these two ‘genres’ don’t really get mixed together very often.
Anyway, a couple more questions, Read Hard! members:
- How far along are you?
- Do you find that you tending towards liking it, or the other way around?
- Has anyone here read Atwood’s poetry? (Nothing to do with the book, just looking for other fans.)
