    This month for my Project Atwood, I read Life Before Man.  I have to say, it wasn't my favorite out of the Margaret Atwood books I have read.

    The book is told from three perspectives: Elizabeth's, Nate's, and Lesje's (pronounced Lashia).

    Elizabeth and Nate are married with two children, but don't have a conventional marriage.  Elizabeth has been having very public affairs for years, and it seems like Nate is doing the same.

    However, Elizabeth's most recent lover, Chris, commits suicide, which propels both Elizabeth and Nate to think more deeply about their marriage and affairs.

    Lesje works with Elizabeth, and seems as if she will be the next one pulled into an affair with Nate.

    While I did enjoy reading this story, it was so long.  I wanted the book to end sooner, which is never a good thing.  Not my favorite Atwood, but not terrible overall.  Just good.

    Do you have a book by a favorite author that was a little underwhelming?

    Thanks for reading,

    Rebecca @ Love at First Book
