I bought the audiobook of Alias Grace, narrated by Shelley Thompson. So count me in!

That's good. I hope you enjoy it. I'm about halfway through a paperback borrowed from my library.

I've read this before and did not like. I will participate tangentially, as I don't want to just contribute negatively. Alas, I just do not like Margaret Atwood.

Atwood is something of a mixed bag for me. I liked Handmaid's Tale but I abandoned Oryx and Crake. So far, this isn't as compelling as the former, but it's certainly entertaining enough and I'm interested in following the various hints and strands and hoping the denouement pays off. I don't want to say more than that with more than ten days until the discussion.

Nothing wrong with a well-reasoned negative comment or three or ... !

I haven't started yet. The only Atwood I've read is The Handmaid's Tale. What appealed to me about Alias Grace is the concept. I like novels about murder with female protagonists.

I'm well into it and really enjoying it. It sounds as if there should be the usual lively discussion!

I just borrowed it from the library. However, I'm way behind. I started reading The House on the Strand today. Better late than never, I suppose. Hopefully I can catch up and be ready for the conversation on Alias Grace.

There are times when we need special reading skates! I hope you enjoy both books.
