The copy is a good one. The story well needs not much review for Atwood fans. She is her usual self weaving an extraordinary platitudinous story from an ordinary protagonist's tale. For first timers this might not be the perfect choice of an introduction to Atwood's world unless the reader is quite a literary one. The meanderings are often not for the story's sake but more for the imagination.
The first Atwood novel was so much raw and that shows in the main protagonist Marian MacAlpin. She is not ambitions, and not self-centered. The adjustments she is ready to make and yet she does not find her fiancee connecting with her as much as merits. The parts where Marian is unable to eat is written damn well, and her moments with Duncan shine all the while that the reader wonders what she is doing with Peter and why can't she break off with him.
