Cat's Eye

Cat's Eye - Margaret Atwood

Elaine returns to her home town of Toronto and reflects on her life in the town. Mostly revolving around her friends.


ughhhh I didn't like this book as much as I'd hoped I would. It was okay, but it was so long and just I don't know, I wanted more from it, while also wanting less of it. Atwood is a beautiful writer, and this book is really beautifully written. There are so many layers to the story which is wonderful, but I still just didn't love it. It does have some great parts and some great commentary.


It's interesting though because this book is told in the same way that Oryx and Crake is, and I loved that book but here it the mechanism felt clunky and bothersome. I mean they are about totally different topics and published 15 years apart but still I found it interesting.


On a positive note it's another I can check off the popsugar reading challenge! (the challenge was to read a book that was published the year you were born)
