I keep expecting there to be some element of fantasy throughout this book, but there never is. It's a strange take on relationships, marriage, engagement and how people change as their titles do. Pretty good.

Atwood wrote about eating disorders before anyone talked about eating disorders. Still think about the egg thing whenever I eat a boiled egg.

Atwood's first novel was not overly exciting and I did not feel compelled to finish the book, even halfway through.
