Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace
I am currently reading Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace. Maybe "slogging through" would be more accurate. It's very detailed, and Grace is a sympathetic character, but it's boring me. I'm thinking about dropping the book, but before I do, have any of you read it and loved it?

I've read it (the whole thing) but I wasn't a big fan. Probably one I won't be rereading.

Read it. Didn't love it, but liked it enought to finish. But I'm Canadian, so reading Atwood falls under patriotic duty.

Huh. I had a bit of trouble getting into it, but fell in love with it by the end. But then I'm something of an Atwood fan.

I haven't read it, but I had trouble getting into the The Handmaid's Tale and wasn't in love with her style so I imagine I would have trouble with that one as well. I did end up liking the story (THT), but I wouldn't try to slog through it again. If it matters, I give you permission to drop it without guilt. :)

I read it and really enjoyed it because it felt like Agatha-Christie-but-with-more-creepiness!

If you're reading for pleasure and not for a class or something, I vote for dropping it. There are far too many books out there to read one you don't have to read.
