review Alias Grace 103 To da uesta personalità complessa e inafferrabile Il dialogo che si instaura tra i due si trasforma nel ritratto psicologico di una persona due volte vittima del sistema sociale in uanto povera e in uanto donna e assurge a denuncia delle enormi contraddizioni di una società maschilista e tormentata da conflitti interni perché incapace di accettare l'altr. if we were all on trial for our thoughts we would all be hanged the year is 1843 and grace marks has been arrested and convicted for her alleged involvement in two murders she is only 16 years old and will spend the next 29 years incarcerated but what would possess a young girl to commit such a crime and why did she give three conflicting confessions of what happened was it a crime of passion or unfortunate circumstancesthe answers to these uestions is exactly what dr jordan hopes to discover as the doctor prompts graces memories the reader is immersed in a story surrounded by sex violence and insubordination with the uncomfortable realisation that not everything is so black and whiteatwood is a very thorough storyteller its evident by reading this that atwood has exhausted all sources when researching grace marks and that tragic day in history and whilst the subject matter is hauntingly gripping my only complaint it this is a little dry its a long expos of graces character and is very slow at times especially when recounting her early life almost to the point where i become emotionally deattached from everything that was happening but i cant deny that this dramatic tale is thought provoking as much as it is entertaining its a definite must read for those who enjoy the true crime of historical fiction 35 stars
