This book tells Penelope's side of The Odyssey story (as she waits 20 years for Odysseus to return from the Trojan war). Margaret Atwood does a good job, but the original is better. This would be a good follow up book for anyone reading The Odyssey.

Sorry I didn't journal this earlier; I couldn't find the BCID! But aha, there it is... :) Thanks for this, I've read some interesting things about it.

I enjoyed this; it's quite amusing, full of Atwood's trademark slyness, but also threaded with something darker throughout. Nicely done.

This is reserved for cowgirl-up, as promised.

UPDATE: Mailed to cowgirl-up on February 15th.

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't at all what I expected. While the story itself was serious and deep, the "performances" by the maids were hysterical. This is only the 2nd work I've read by Atwood (after The Handmaid's Tale) and it makes me look forward to reading more of her works.
