In My Mailbox

In My Mailbox is a meme hosted by Story Siren. It features books you've received or bought during the week.

Margaret Atwood Books are just a few among the many books that intimidates me. I've also mentioned before that most Man Booker winners/finalists also scare the wits out of me. The Blind Assassin being both a Margaret Atwood book and a Man Booker Winner seems to be a double whammy. But with my recent surprising success with Vernon God Little (A Man Booker Winner) I'm eager to be surprised yet again. 

Anyone of you read this one or any Margaret Atwood book for that matter? I'd love to hear your thoughts about it. And if you've received anything in your mailbox, do share! 


  1. Hello Tin! I didn't realize you also joined the story siren meme. I should really pay greater attention. I have the Blind Assassin - and I've read it. I love all Margaret Atwood books - definitely not our staple of picture books and YA fiction, but ... I suppose it's a league of its own. I find that it helps to pause every now and again while reading Atwood books - just too much at one go. But I am sure you'd enjoy Blind Assassin.

    Hi Myra! I'm only into the first few pages but you're right about it being too much at one go. I really do need to pause. So, sometimes I sneak in a Kid lit or a YA read :). But I am loving her writing style though. I found there's wit and a bit of satire, the poetic descriptions. :)
