Review: The Penelopiad – Margaret Atwood.

the penelopiad*Backdated review*
Having heard a lot about Margaret Atwood through the recent Edinburgh Book Festival, I decided I would read one of her books. And, honestly, it was okay. I did like her style of writing, and I like the idea of the Myth Series – I will definitely look into more of those.

I don’t know whether full familiarity with the story of Penelope would have helped or hindered the book. Across the board I thought it was okay, fine, but that was all. I’ve seen complaints from those familiar with the story more than those who are not, so perhaps my ignorance of the original tale is a good thing.

I think I will like Atwood’s work when I try another book, and I’m interested in looking into more of the series. We’ll see.
