?ката която хвърлят върху живота ѝ е толкова плътна че самата тя не може да осъзнае мястото сиДжоун започва да води двойнствен живот и никой около нея не познава истинскат. This was my second read of Atwood's third novel and alas I didn't find it as witty or as funny as I did the first time aroundIt's about Joan Foster a writer of Gothic romances who has found her real life getting so out of control that she has had to fake her own death to start anewJoan's ability to keep secrets – and live in a fantasy world – comes naturally to her She's used to living a double life She grew up with a weight problem and was bullied by everyone from her mother to her classmates and fellow Brownie members Atwood's description of Joan's childhood rings true – her torture will be familiar to anyone who's read the author's later and fully realized novel Cat's Eye She also understands how one's memory of being overweight can affect your entire self image even if you are no longer the same weightBut the plot feels contrived and unconvincing and the characters pretty thin Atwood has some fun penning passages from a novel within a novel that Joan is writing She captures the spirit of romances and parodies them at the same time I remember thinking the main plot was a clever critiue of romances but now I'm not so sure Or if it is it seems too obvious And the ending feels really perfunctory But there's still plenty to enjoy in the book including a couple of shots at Canadian literature the modern art scene and the Kahlil GibranRod McKuen fad of the late 1960searly 70s Having read almost all of her novels I'm beginning to think that Atwood's fiction can be divided into two categories comic romps like this and her recent novels The Heart Goes Last and Hag Seed and serious works like The Handmaid's Tale Alias Grace and Surfacing There's charm in the former but I much prefer the latter

Lady Oracleа ѝ същностПисателка поетеса съпруга любовница измамница и дете – младата жена решава да избяга от всичките си роли като инсценира смъртта си Но дали това ще е достатъчн?.

I’ve read uite a lot of Margaret Atwood and very much enjoy her writing both style and issues she raises I like her in psychological scene and don’t shy away from her dystopian face either Lady Oracle is her earlier work and truly didn’t know what to expect there I also have a problem to what genre the novel in fact belongs She seems to feel comfortable in gothic romance black comedy and uasi noir novel though it's the psychological portrait and depth I'm looking for in her novels It starts in Italy when Joan Foster after simulating own death decides to wait all upheaval out and catch her breath Joan a seemingly unremarkable somewhat skittish and gauche girl that even her husband by the way a wicked loser himself looks down on is not entirely a person everyone thinks she is And she is a recognized author of highly acclaimed even if uestionable debut novel Lady Oracle But it’s only half of it For as it shows Joan as Luisa Delcourt is a woman with vivid imagination and uite successful writer of historical romances Though to tell the truth we are not sure if she is not someone else yetuite sizeable part of the novel concerns Joan’s miserable childhood inability to be accepted by peer group rebellious contrary even nature and her troubled relations with her overbearing and demanding highly disappointing in the end mother And I think it’s a very good part but Atwood after a while waves this thread aside and changes the tone She will return to it some years later develops and deepens it creating brilliant and incomparable Cat’s eye But now our unfortunate though sympathetic heroine drifts uncertainly between her various incarnations lying and prevaricating taking pot luck and believing that she will finally become a real self Her life dilemmas and torments are intertwined with ludicrous adventures of fictional protagonists from her trashy romances and create all in all humorous and warm novel apparently light but under the surface some deeper thoughts are hiddenIt's not the best work of Atwood for sure but it had its moments and left me rather satisfied It was touching and amusing I couldn't help but laugh reading some chapters I enjoyed the language and her power of observation Had I read it at the beginning of my acuaintanceship with Atwood's writing definitely would have been curious how she developed as a writer Since I started my adventure with her works with her later and mature novels I think it was very nice to see her younger self either355
