    I enjoyed all of these short stories And I m so happy to be able to write that, because the last few short story collections I ve read, have been quite disappointing, with just one or two stories each that was really good But Atwood gives you quality all the way.Her short stories are very character driven They are not necessarily heavy on plot, but you get to know some very interesting characters and relationships It s easy to g

    Noshort story collections for me If I m going to read a short story or a novella I m going to cherry pick them and not read the whole book , ie I have The birds and other stories by Daphne Du Maurier, I m only going to read The birds I think my problem with them is that they can be so hit and miss I like a couple in this book but that s not enough really Also I like to immerse myself in the story, get to know the characters etc and the

    I have only read the short story BlueBeard s Egg so far, here is what I thought Within the pages of BlueBeard s Egg by Margaret Atwood we are introduced into a world of metafiction and intertexuality Atwood spins the retelling of the fairytale of BlueBeard s Egg for the reader Atwood does this through the narration of the man character Sally Atwood wanders down the path of the complexities of the ordinary life, through the inner narration of th

    3.5 starsBluebeard s Egg is a collection that offers up classic Atwood in short story form Some of them were a tad forgettable, but always enjoyable when you were doing the actual reading, and there were some truly Atwoodian gems in here..As usual, she provides her unique take on themes such as nature, gender roles, friendships, mother daughter relationships, and of course, the relationship between men and women Also present is her classic wit, which seethes j

    Reinstates my faith in one of my all time favorite writers Am not a fan of the anthology genre, and I plunged into this collection due to the following reasons Came upon it on storytel while surfing through my next audio to listen, It was by Atwood and it was a long time since I read something by her And I never regretted it.Each story was good in it s own way , and none were less than 4 star material.Am not going to touch upon any story as I feel I am not capable of

    Point me to the nearest Lesbian Separatist Feminist Commune, will you What a lot of heterosexual angst this book has The male characters are cads and the women are in love with them and unhappy I realize this is a book of its time, and the stories are about realistic women in realistic situations, but it has not aged well Or maybe I just don t care for Margaret Atwood s writing All of the stories were depressing except the last one, which wasof a personal memory and very swee
