Margaret Atwood's The Heart Goes Last was, like her other novels, a work of dystopian fiction. The book started out plausible and believable, but as you read on, the plot becomes more and more twisted and surreal. In discussing the book, we came up with some questions about some of the characters and their placement in some of the scenes and their involvement in the overall book. We came to realize it was more intricate and more going on behind the scenes than you may realize when you first read the book. There is definitely some humor - some even a little over the top! For someone in her late seventies to be still writing books that you don't want to put down because you cannot wait to see what happens next, I say, she deserves the utmost praise. Not everyone loves her books, her writing style, or her subject matter, but I found it fun, something to contemplate. Atwood definitely made me think, and that is the mark of a good author in my opinion.
