    The Robber Bride

    The Robber Bride is a book full of twists and turns. It leaves on the edge of your seat and makes you want to keep on reading. Tony, Roz, and Charis met under odd circumstances. They had all been badly wounded by Zenia. Zenia is a vindictive character whose only pleasure comes from the hurt of others. Zenia befriends the three and then finds what would hurt each of them the most, the man in their life. Not only does Zenia take away each man, but she also finds it necessary to completely destroy each man. For Charis and Roz Zenia is successful in demolishing each man, but for Tony's beloved West she cannot win. Through out the story you become more acquainted with the three characters. All three have lost their husbands to Zenia. Margaret Atwood did a superb job with this novel. Her ability to makes you actually know the character makes the book some how comes alive. It's like you can relate to the characters. At one point they're eating lunch at Toxique and it's almost like you can see what they see. Atwood really gets into the minds of her characters. She shows you a simple instance, such as going out to eat, from each perspective. At times her language can be a bit confusing, but at the same time it intrigues you even more. I really like the fact that she chose three completely different characters and was able to bring them all together and make it work. The Robber Bride is a book for anyone who enjoys being engulfed by a piece of writing. I recommend this book to anyone.

    Linda Lavid, author of RENTED ROOMS

    Whether you're a reader or a writer, this book is a classic. The three women and their long history with the elusive Robber bride will entertain the reader, mesmerize the writer. Atwood is at the top of her craft with this one.

    Boring!

    I couldn't finish this book. The story sounded interesting but too many unnecessary descriptions left me bored beyond belief. I rated this book one star because zero star wasn't a choice. This was the first Margaret Atwood book I've read (tried too) and it is definitely the last. Yawn!!!! --K--

    The heart and soul of women!

    Atwood weaves a tale of 3 very different women ( Roz, Charis, & Tony) who are similar in their personal lives. These women attract men who use them for personal satisfaction and they allow themselves to become bulldozed by a very clever and ruthless woman, Zenia. The events of changing times - war,the drug culture, exploration of ones civil liberties, influences their future. Does Atwood interject some of her own experiences into the book?

    Avoid all books where a main characters name starts with Z

    Especially in scifi fantasy Zphobic perhaps? unless Greek which is hard to avoid a Z name
