LoveReading Says

Atwood is able to subtly weave a sledgehammer of a story, here are nine tales with themes ranging from revenge to resignation, from grace to greed and all connected by the wheel of time and change. If you haven't read any of her previous works, this is the perfect place to start; a story might link in to another, one might be very short, another dipping a toe into a fantasy realm. You will undoubtedly have your favourite stories and characters, and that is part of the charm, the wit, the clever competent writing. This is also the perfect place to start if short stories are unchartered territory, as you will most definitely not feel short changed by this wonderful collection.
