Reviews

"The first great novel of the new millennium." --Newsday

"Absorbing... expertly rendered... Virtuosic storytelling [is] on display." --The New York Times

"Brilliant... Opulent... Atwood is a poet.... as well as a contriver of fiction, and scarcely a sentence of her quick, dry yet avid prose fails to do useful work, adding to a picture that becomes enormous." --John Updike, The New Yorker

"Chilling... Lyrical... [Atwood's] most ambitious work to date." --The Boston Globe

"Hauntingly powerful.... A novel of luminous prose, scalpel-precise insights and fierce characters... Atwood's new work is so assured, so elegant and so incandescently intelligent, she casts her contemporaries in the shade." --The Atlanta Journal--Constitution

"Grand storytelling on a grand scale... Sheerly enjoyable." --The Washington Post Book World

"Bewitching... A killer novel.... Atwood's crisp wit and steely realism are reminiscent of Edith Wharton... A wonderfully complex narrative." --The Christian Science Monitor

"A tour de force." --Chicago Tribune
