    The first Margaret Atwood book I ve ever read and really not liked She has definitely grown as an author her imagination, the scope of her stories, and her character development have grown exponentially in herrecent books If you re new to Atwood, I d pass on this one and go straight to the Handmaid s Tale, Oryx and Crake, the Year of the Flood, and the Penolopiad in that O
