The Blind Assassin

by Margaret Atwood

Not the book to choose if you're looking for a relaxing read. But if you want to be made to think as you experience the real emotions of two very believable sisters then this beautifully written book could be the one for you.


On the train coming back from Port Ticonderoga, and then for weeks afterwards, I pondered Laura's message, the one Reenie said she'd left for me. She must have known, then, that whatever she was planning to say to the strange doctor at the hospital might have repercussions. She must have known it was a risk, and so she'd taken precautions. Somehow, somewhere, she'd left some word, some clue for me, like a dropped handkerchief or a trail of white stones in the woods.
