“Language itself had lost its solidity; it had become thin, contingent, slippery; a viscid film on which he was sliding around”
It took me a long time to get into this book. I’m talking 100 pages before I was even slightly convinced. But I am glad I stuck it out. The last 100 or so pages were really good, it was just slow at the beginning. To be honest, I was a little disappointed just because I had high expectations but it was worth the read. I still haven’t decided whether I’ll be reading the other two books in the series. They’re not really a series but more all set in the same world/time etc.
Ultimately, the story (once I got into it) was pretty enticing and a very interesting dystopian concept. I’m always persuaded by this genre and Atwood is the Queen.
