Oh Zenia! Do we get in life that which we deserve? Does Zenia ruin their lives, or is she just easy to blame? Loved it! ( )

The novel is inspired by the Brothers Grimm’s “Robber Bridegroom” - a tale of an evil groom that would lure his brides to his lair and devour them. In Atwood’s version the villain is a woman (Zennia), who ruthlessly toys with the men and lives of three middle-aged friends.

Spoiler alert:

These women are at one point or another used or manipulated by Zenia. The male characters are never well developed and are often portrayed as manipulated sex crazed fools without any real depth. It’s not a bad read and many love it (high reviews) - although I did like the element of redemption in women who grew to recognize the danger Zenia represented (and even find peace), I felt Atwood droned on and on unnecessarily in certain parts and was disappointed by the gullibility of these women. Compared to Oryx and Crake and The Handmaid’s Tale, I did not “love” this one as much. Or maybe...just maybe...I’m at a point in my life where I can spot the “Zenias ” of this world and give them a wide berth! ( )

The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood (1998) ( )

I read the Robber Bride while in high school (stolen from my mother's night stand) and remembered it being beautiful and eyeopening. Having read it as an adult I have to admit being slightly disappointed in retrospect. While I was reading it I enjoy the beauty of the sentences and the depth of her character development, but after mentally chewing on the book I'm saddened.

To a high school mind this book seemes perfectly acceptable because the way these four women approach relationships is sophmoric. Everyone had that friend that would take back her boyfriend no matter what he did, or pretend he was perfect, or love him so much she had no identity. We knew the girls who would ruin relationships just for the fun of it. On some level this continues through college, but ultimately we gain depth and grow. It's only too bad these characters didn't.

I wish I hadn't reread The Robber Bride just so I could remember it being beautiful and spot on. ( )

Margaret Atwood has always possessed a tribal bent: in both her fiction and her nonfiction she has described and transcribed the ceremonies and experience of being a woman, or a Canadian, or a writer -- or all three. And as with so many practitioners of identity politics, literary or otherwise, while one side of her banner defiantly exclaims "We Are!" the other side, equally defiant, admonishes "Don't Lump Us." In "The Robber Bride," Ms. Atwood has gathered (not lumped) four very different women characters.
