Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

The Robber Bride - Margaret Atwood At first I was a little wary of the plot--a "maneater" who steals the men of three women, who declare her evil. But it was beautifully written, of course, everything by Margaret Atwood is beautifully written. I love Tony the best, then Roz, both of them have such compelling pasts and their resulting personalities are so different, yet both are strong people, wanting to do what's right and help others. The result of course, is being betrayed by the very person they were kind to and wanted to help, Zenia, who is a fascinating person in herself, the mysteriousness of not knowing who she is. What story she tells is true? I want to know, and that's one of the things that attracting about The Robber Bride. It's a book worth reading, if for nothing else but the three leading women.
