Review of 'The Robber Bride'

The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood

This is a book following the stories of three woman: Roz, Charis and Tony. They sit eating lunch and their world is brought to a sudden halt as the woman that ruined each of their lives walks in: Zenia. Each tells their story and describes how Zenia moved in to destroy all that they had built up in terms of relationships and family. It is amusing to read of the obsessiveness and blindness of each of the woman as they tell their story forever denying the truths being expressed by Zenia – one who is always looking out for herself. An interesting exploration of relationships and the search for meaning in life. Very well written (as one would expect from Attwood) and very readable.

Rating: “Really good but I have some issues”

Genre: General Fiction
