The Blind Assassin - Margaret Atwood The Blind Assassin is a piece of art.A novel within a novel. Both fictional auto-biography and pulp science fiction. There really is no easy way of describing it, apart from, impressive! Atwood is a genius in my mind. She manages to weave these two narratives into a tale so brimming with tension and emotion it's unbearable at times. The writing is divine. Almost every sentence in this novel is quotable. Halfway through this (rather large book) I began to regret that it would ever end. I even considered stopping halfway through and starting it again to prolong the pleasure. Tantric book reading ladies and gentlemen, give it a go ;-)
