This was a great book. It’s very cleverly written and the storyline has lots of twists and turns. Iris is a likable character who has a huge weight on her shoulders; her sister, Laura is unique and in the depression era is not looked upon favourably. These two sisters stories are interwoven into a really well written narrative. If you like Margaret Atwood books you will enjoy this one too. #margaretatwood #theblindassassin #readersgram #bookblogger #bookblog #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #igbooks #booksofig #aussiebibliophile #bibliophile #biblibibuli

@myyearofbooker2018
I finally finished #historyofwolves by #emilyfridlund and I’m blown away by how much I loved this read. That completes my #manbookershortlist2017 reading. Now onto the #manbooker50. Weekend away with no child, husband or dog...question is which one? ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️History of Wolves - this book is a subtle and captivating story of growing up, belonging and consequence. The language, setting and narrative voice, for me, were perfection. I look forward to reading more of fridlund’s work•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••#bookstagram #bookreview #bookerprize #bookstack #aussiereaders #bookobessed #theblindassassin #margaretatwood #thebonepeople #kerihulme #midnightschildren #salmanrushdie #theseigeofkrishnapur #jgfarrell #oscarandlucinda #petercarey #wiedenfeldandnicholson

I just started The Blind Assassin for #twinbookclub, which is a remote book club I do with some friends from college. I look forward to our Google hangouts every month!.I did not realize this sucker is over 500 pages though, and now I’m concerned about finishing both this AND This Must Be the Place for #mmdbookclub in time. 😱.Nevertheless, I am very excited to embark upon my second @therealmargaretatwood novel! I only made it about 10 pages in, but it was gripping from the start..What are you reading right now?...#theblindassassin #unreadshelfproject2018 #margaretatwood #readinglife #flatlay @pageanchor #currentread #currentlyreading #unitedbookstagram #booklove #iheartbooks #idratherbereading

Дом — там, где сердце, думала я, сидя в кафе «У Бетти» и пытаясь взять себя в руки. У меня больше нет сердца, разбито; или не разбито, а просто его нет. Аккуратно вынуто, как желток из яйца вкрутую, осталась бескровная свернувшаяся пустота.Я бессердечна, подумала я. Следовательно, бездомна.

My first #MargaretAtwood (for shame)! #TheBlindAssassin. I’m only 100 and something pages in and I can’t put it down. Iris Chase - what a character, you can feel her bones on every page. Such a visceral read.

📚❗️Я наткнулась на «Слепого Убийцу» совершенно случайно, и была настроена немного скептически. Но ведь ни одна приличная история не обходится без волков. ________________________________________Она зацепила меня своей искренностью, такой, какой порой бывает жизнь- без счастливого конца. Это книга в книге. Она дает подсказки, но не раскрывает секрета до самого конца. ________________________________________Для меня слепой убийца-это главная героиня, убившая всех, кого могла бы любить. Ведь она слишком бездействовала и совсем не умела бороться за то, за что действительно стоило. А ведь и живые люди бывают такими, не только в книгах. Поэтому я еще раз убедилась, что беречь и заботиться о тех, кого действительно любишь. Чтобы потом не было поздно. Чтобы потом не сожалеть._______________________________________Думаю, что продолжу читать Маргарет Этвуд. Есть ли у вас в фаворитах какое-либо из ее произведений?

I’m trying out something different with my recent pictures... still undecided where to go with my feed for the new year so you may see random images but that’s how I will see what works and what doesn’t. Any feedback would be great, thank you ❤️📚...#instabook #bookish #bibliophile #reading #book #bookstagram #bookworm #booklover #bookaholic #bookaddict #booksfaithlovefeature #bookishfeatures #bookstagramfeature #bookstagramersunite #bookfeaturepage #blogger #margaretatwood #theblindassassin

@abookeraweek
Week 4: The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood, Booker Prize winner in 2000..I first read this at around the time it was published, but had forgotten most of the details. Now at the halfway point of a re-read and remembering how much I loved it..Not in shot: the brownie I just ate with too little restraint to consider the photo op. In shot: slightly grubby-looking carpet...#theblindassassin #margaretatwood #bookerprize #manbookerprize #2000 #abookeraweek

Father and mother checking each its own computer. Girl 12yo with mobile. Grand mother with a book partly in Sanskrit. Little girl on the back reading a book with purple cover. Little boy in front is my hero: he is completely absorbed by The hobbit in a beautiful edition.Next picture is me: The blind assassin, Margaret Atwood. Trying not to burn out her after The handmaid's tale. Starting to enjoy long books again. #thehobbit #thehandmaidstale #theblindassassin

@letthemreadbooks
Just some beautiful covers for you all today. Also, The Secret History in the top corner is wrecked from when I read it but I kind of love the coffee stained cover..I have just finished The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood and it was incredible. I think my next read will be Sight by Jessie Greengrass..What are you reading at the moment?.#whitebooks #coverporn #currentlyreading #booklover #theblindassassin

@fuckbadbooks
Margaret Atwood. Den blinde mördaren. Här får man följa fyra historier. Vilket ju är typiskt för Atwood.Iris blev bortgift vid arton års ålder till en förmögen man. Iris som nu är åttiotvå år, fattig och bitter över livet, är berättarrösten. Laura, hennes yngre syster, dog när hon var tjugofem år och hennes liv har blivit mycket omtalat på grund av skandalromanen "Den blinde mördaren" som hon skrev, och som gavs ut efter hennes död. De två andra berättelserna utspelar sig i den boken, som har blivit en feministisk kultbok. Det är en förbjuden kärlekshistoria. De två möts upp på olika platser för sina kärleksmöten, och mannen roar även kvinnan med att berätta science fiction - historien om den blinde mördaren och härskarna på planeten Zykron. Kan kanske låta lite jobbig men ack nej. Väldigt enkel, perfekt semesterläsning skulle jag säga! #margaretatwood #denblindemördaren #theblindassassin

@wethreereaders
✨Book review✨The second book ticked off ok our #manbooker50 challenge, The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood which won the prize in 2000. ..It is a historical novel about the life of Iris Griffen, née Chase, and her sister, Laura.'Laura Chase’s older sister Iris, married at eighteen to a politically prominent industrialist but now poor and eighty-two, is living in Port Ticonderoga, a town dominated by their once-prosperous family before the First War. While coping with her unreliable body, Iris reflects on her far from exemplary life, in particular the events surrounding her sister’s tragic death. Sexually explicit for its time, The Blind Assassin describes a risky affair in the turbulent thirties between a wealthy young woman and a man on the run. During their secret meetings in rented rooms, the lovers concoct a pulp fantasy set on Planet Zycron. As the invented story twists through love and sacrifice and betrayal, so does the real one; while events in both move closer to war and catastrophe. By turns lyrical, outrageous, formidable, compelling and funny, this is a novel filled with deep humour and dark drama.'..Don’t get me wrong – Margaret Atwood can turn a phrase and make it dance for you. Her prose is beautiful, vivid, atmospheric…Great writing but didn’t feel engaged with the characters – it all felt like it was done at a distance and I just didn’t care. Ugh. So many people love Margaret Atwood. Is there something wrong with me?– J (Yes! -H) ⭐️⭐️..#manbookerprize #margaretatwood #theblindassassin #booksandtea #fiction #mystery #bookreview #igreads #readersofinstagram
