Today I am VERY happy to welcome Eva Holland to the blog to tell us about her writing hero. From the nightmarish landscapes of The Handmaid’s Tale and Oryx and Crake to the claustrophobic and menacing female friendships of Cat’s Eye and The Robber Bride, Atwood’s stories are teeming with life, with characters so real that they live on long after I have turned the last page.
When Rosalind’s fifteen-year-old daughter, Stephanie, ran away with her teacher, this ordinary family became something it had never asked to be. There is a great perception to the writing as we see the different ways the characters try to deal with the issues – none of them are particularly practical or indeed particularly likeable, but they are eminently realistic with an intuitively drawn depth that really gets you inside the issues. I’m halfway through this and like you, I’m racing through to see what happens when he is released! Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. Most of the characters and events of Suffrajitsu Book 1, including the real suffragette bodyguard team, are based on true history and can be explored on the Suffrajitsu website.

She moves from horror to humour with words so beautiful that they make me shiver, slipping seemingly effortlessly from the 1843 of Alias Grace to a distant future, from speculative fiction to crime.
Their lives held up to scrutiny in the centre of a major police investigation, the Simms were headline news while Stephanie was missing with a man who was risking everything.
For starters it was a bit of a departure in plot from the plethora of (mostly great) family drama novels I’ve read this year and had a particular depth and resonance to it that really appealed to me. Ros especially, full of anxiety and neurosis, as the story unfolds and you see flashes of the home life Stephanie had, you begin to understand that there is more to things than meets the eye.

Full disclosure: I was given a free preview copy of this graphic novel in return for an honest and unbiased review.
I think this is why she is among the tiny handful of authors I read and loved as a teenager and still read and love today.
Pankhurst’s Amazons is a fun, intense, fast-moving, visually engaging treat generating plenty of locomotive power to flex the weight of its historic period without slowing its narrative.


A story ripped straight from the headlines, imagnining the people behind the drama, The Daughters Secret was compelling, often sad and very authentic with a spot on pitch perfect ending.
Characters launch out of their introductions into glorious motion and the plot twists bursting from the final pages set the bar high for the two installments to come – if the Suffrajitsu trilogy can live up to its own expectations this is going to be one hell of a ride. When the library was quiet I would read the blurbs on the backs of the returned books before I put them on their shelves, setting any that caught my eye aside to take home. I remember reading the back cover and sensing that here was a book unlike anything I had read before. I started it on the bus on the way home and didn’t stop until I finished it at four o’clock the next morning. I was hooked by the power of Atwood’s imagination, the fearlessness with which she created a world so dark and full of terror that it slipped into my dreams for weeks.
Bleary eyed the next day I found Cat’s Eye on a bookshelf at home – it had been sitting there, waiting for me.
