Today we will be talking about the author's style.  As I mentioned awhile ago, Margaret Atwood takes many creative liberties with her writing, one being a lack of quotation marks during The Blind Assassin parts.  It's not so much that I hate it, I just don't see the point.  Well, me being me, I lo...

Iris reminds me of, well, me.  She's sarcastic.  She has an annoying little sister three years younger than her.  She gives off scorpio and Slytherin vibes.
