June, 2011: Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood

(Book #14) Mary hosted this meeting and served two wonderful salads, one green and one pasta, and a fruit tart for dessert. Our discussion started with the topic of  hysterical blindness  We enjoyed the writing particularly the description of the sisters’ childhood. but the science fiction of the novel within the novel did not have wide appeal for this group. I read some of my favorite passages but we all seemed to have difficulty staying on topic this evening.
