I love Margaret Atwood's books. I really do. I can't believe that I never heard of her until about 5 years ago, when someone recommended I read The Handmaid's Tale. I thought it was a fantastic book and then with this project I've also had the opportunity to read Alias Grace and The Blind Assassin, both of which I really enjoyed as well.
So I had high hopes for Cat's Eye. It did not disappoint one bit. Like all of Atwood's writing, it is a complex, multilayered tale. This story is about an artist who returns to her hometown for a show of her art and the return brings up a whole bunch of childhood memories for her to deal with. It is really thoughtful and deliberate but at the same time is an intense story. I really loved it.
