The Blind Assassin blew my mind. This is the first book I've ever read by Margaret Atwood, so I didn't knew what to expect. Margaret Atwood writes such a compelling story that I seriously thought it was happening. It wasn't until I the book ended that I reminded myself that this was a work of fiction. And still I have a hard time believing it because it's so perfect, so beautifully put together. I loved Iris, even if most people don't. I understand her actions & what she's gone through. I loved how misunderstood she was throughout the whole novel. The Blind Assassin keeps you in suspense until the last pages, revealing secrets until the last moment. I loved the story within a story & how it reflected the main plot.I really loved this book & I think EVERYONE should read it.
