review Bodily Harm ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB R a compassion that goes beyond what we ordinarily mean by love The enigma unfolds as it would for any innocent bystander swept up by events bringing along the scruples and the fears of the past From the Hardcover edition. Perhaps the most notable element in this book for me though it may be strange to admit is the use of different tenses It s written mostly in the present tense and then switches to the past tense when the main character Rennie thinks back and then to the past perfect tense when there s a flashback within the past sections Perhaps I merely liked it because I felt justified over the times I ve written that way and editors have told me it was confusing Not that I consider myself a writer anywhere near Atwood s ability so I also like that I can learn from her But the reason I like it the most is because when the future tense is employed for the first time nine pages from the end it s a stylistic choice that serves the story wellWhile reading I was first reminded of Valerie Martin s Italian Fever and then as one of the blurbs on the back says Graham Greene there is certainly humor through irony and satire in all these authors works not to mention their stories of an innocent in a foreign country with their themes of both cultural and sexual politics Then near the end I was reminded of Northanger Abbey Though Rennie is not nearly as innocent as Catherine Morland this is said of her as she s reading murder mysteries to distract herself She doesn t have much patience for the intricacies of clues and deductions Like Catherine and the rest of us what Rennie sees is colored by her past experiences or lack thereof When the comparison popped into my head I wondered if it was a correct one but now that I see I referenced Northanger Abbey in my review of Italian Fever too I m confident of that conclusionIt wasn t till I was finished reading that I realized how angry Atwood is in this book It s definitely a controlled anger but after the black humor and satire of the beginning and middle it comes through at the end and there is no doubt as to what she is angry about

Margaret Atwood has been my most favorite writer since I was sixteen There s maybe ten authors in second place many of whom especially Cort zar regularly rear their heads in my imagination to try to supplant Atwood s place for first but every time I go back to Margaret I seriously fall in love again More than anything I love the way that her language shifts my actual thought patterns or at least my constantly streaming internal monologue until it sounds like she s the one inside my head narrating me Is that crazy Maybe I m crazy But reading even a page of Atwood s prose makes my thoughts elegant intense literary for days at a time Anyway Bodily Harm is great of course It covers most of her preferred themes proto and post feminism strong and complex female and male characters lush settings everything described with an accompanying and often multi layered smell sexy sex anticipated and actual complicated plot involving the intersection of the personal with the political or is it the immersion of one into the other Or the amplification by same Whatever This book actually got a lot violent and dark at the end than I remembered this is at least my fifth read probably but it s Atwood Atwood Atwood and I love her than anyone else
