Dr. Simon Jordan, an up-and-coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness, is engaged by a group of reformers and spiritualists who seek a pardon for Grace.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood And as we notice Atwood’s abilities in working with patches, we recognized her literary artistry and her understanding of the powers of fiction. When stories are woven they are nothing at all, but when they are finished, with all their parts sewn together, they become what they are. Not surprisingly is Scheherezade invoked in the novel. For stories, mixing truths and falsities acquire the nature of something else. They are not too different from the Tree of Paradise, the tree of Life and of Good & Evil.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I bough this book because I loved The Handmaid's Tale. I wanted to love this book also but I thought the language was too hard to follow and I couldn't continue reading...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read! I read this novel years ago in high school and recently read it again before watching the 6 part mini series based on this book. I remember loving it then and still enjoyed reading it! It's a compelling historical fiction story that examines social conventions, gender roles, and just overall great storytelling from Margaret Atwood! Highly recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book I can read over and over Bought this back when it was first published in paperback and recently re-read it before watching the CBC miniseries. It is a well told story and, although it is a work of fiction, holds up as compelling historical drama.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! This is my second Margaret Atwood read, and just like the first I read, (Handmaids Tale), I was not disappointed. The characters and story are entertaining and unique. The development of the story made it difficult to put down. I have high hopes for the TV show!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for me I'm not really a fan of Atwood but I wanted to read this book before the mini series on TV. This us probably a very good book, but I just don't want to wade through it. Got to chapter 4 and gave up. Sorry Margaret.
