I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Mixed bag.

Alias Grace - Margaret Atwood

This had really brilliant parts. And a lot of boring stuff.


All written very well, but it was a very long read. And it felt that way.


What also didn't help was the different layers of the story, Grace's own story would have been fascinating enough without Dr. Jordan's life story etc. - it nearly felt like a totally different and remote story. 


The end felt abrupt and kind of disappointing - it felt like a long climb and then no view...


I guess it was clear from the beginning that there would be no conclusion as this is an unsolved crime in real life. Maybe my expectations were too high.

But I felt dissatisfied after finishing it.
