Margaret Atwood s i The Robber Bride i is inspired by The Robber Bridegroom a wonderfully grisly tale from the Brothers Grimm in which an evil groom lures three maidens into his lair and devours them one by one But in her version Atwood brilliantly recasts the monster as Zenia a villainess of demonic proportions and sets her loose in the lives of three friends Tony Charis and Roz All three have lost men spirit money and time to their old college acquaintance Zenia At various times and in various emotional disguises Zenia has insinuated her way into their lives and practically demolished them To Tony who almost lost her husband and jeopardized her academic career Zenia is a lurking enemy commando To Roz who did lose her husband and almost her magazine Zenia is a cold and treacherous bitch To Charis who lost a boyfriend quarts of vegetable juice and some pet chickens Zenia is a kind of zombie maybe soulless Lorrie Moore i New York Times Book Review i In love and war illusion and deceit Zenia s subterranean malevolence takes us deep into her enemies pasts, b Oryx and Crake b is at once an unforgettable love story and a compelling vision of the future Snowman known as Jimmy before mankind was overwhelmed by a plague is struggling to survive in a world where he may be the last human and mourning the loss of his best friend Crake and the beautiful and elusive Oryx whom they both loved In search of answers Snowman embarks on a journey with the help of the green eyed Children of Crake through the lush wilderness that was so recently a great city until powerful corporations took mankind on an uncontrolled genetic engineering ride Margaret Atwood projects us into a near future that is both all too familiar and beyond our imagining, Grace Marks has been convicted for her involvement in the vicious murders of her employer Thomas Kinnear and Nancy Montgomery his housekeeper and mistress Some believe Grace is innocent others think her evil or insane Now serving a life sentence Grace claims to have no memory of the murders br br Dr Simon Jordan an up and coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness is engaged by a group of reformers and spiritualists who seek a pardon for Grace He listens to her story while bringing her closer and closer to the day she cannot remember What will he find in attempting to unlock her memories Is Grace a female fiend A bloodthirsty femme fatale Or is she the victim of circumstances, Margaret Atwood takes the art of storytelling to new heights in a dazzling novel that unfolds layer by astonishing layer and concludes in a brilliant and wonderfully satisfying twist Told in a style that magnificently captures the colloquialisms and clich s of the s and s The Blind Assassin is a richly layered and uniquely rewarding experience br br It opens with these simple resonant words Ten days after the war ended my sister drove a car off the bridge They are spoken by Iris whose terse account of her sister Laura s death in is followed by an inquest report proclaiming the death accidental But just as the reader expects to settle into Laura s story Atwood introduces a novel within a novel Entitled The Blind Assassin it is a science fiction story told by two unnamed lovers who meet in dingy backstreet rooms When we return to Iris it is through a newspaper article announcing the discovery of a sailboat carrying the dead body of her husband a distinguished industrialist br br For the past twenty five years Margaret Atwood has written works of striking originality and imagination In The Blind Assassin she stretches the limits of her accomplishments as never before creating a novel that is entertaining and profoundly serious The Blind Assassin proves once again that Atwood is one of the most talented daring and exciting writers of our time Like The Handmaid s Tale it is destined to become a classic
