A few of us are reading The Blind Assassin at the same time. It was the idea of my friend Helen.
At the end of each day we will report back here. We are reading one section every day; the book is split into fifteen of them. So will will be finished in 15 days. Get it?
Scott: Very short opening section. More of a taster than anything else. Still, she's managed to chuck in a tantalising first-person narrative, a newspaper clipping and a portion of a novel-within-a-novel so plenty going on. Ordinarilly I would read on past this so felt a bit weird to stop here. But rules are rules.
Helen: A good start but the first two colons on page one annoyed me. I don't know why.
