Description

From the number one New York Times best-selling author of The Handmaid's Tale

Soon to be a Netflix Original series, Alias Grace takes listeners into the life of one of the most notorious women of the 19th century.

It's 1843, and Grace Marks has been convicted for her involvement in the vicious murders of her employer and his housekeeper and mistress. Some believe Grace is innocent; others think her evil or insane. Now serving a life sentence, Grace claims to have no memory of the murders.

An up-and-coming expert in the burgeoning field of mental illness is engaged by a group of reformers and spiritualists who seek a pardon for Grace. He listens to her story while bringing her closer and closer to the day she cannot remember. What will he find in attempting to unlock her memories?

Captivating and disturbing, Alias Grace showcases best-selling, Booker Prize-winning author Margaret Atwood at the peak of her powers.

Loved it.

Really incredible audio book. Highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in true crime and Canadian history... Atwood has clearly taken creative liberty, but tastefully so. Another great book from her.

Worth the time and effort to pay attention

I listen to books while I am doing other things, so many times I had to rewind and listen again because I wasn’t paying close enough attention. It probably took me twice as long to get through this book because of that, but I never once considered quitting. I was very interesting, and even more so when I reminded myself that it was based on a true story.

Beguiling Mystery Masterfully Told

This is masterful storytelling by a writer at the pinnacle of her craft. Expertly narrated by Sarah Gadon (who plays Grace in the mini-series adaptation of the novel) Alias Grace is a beguiling mystery, the reader is left to wonder "did she or didn't she?". Atwood cleverly elucidates how women of the era were often trapped,, whether or not they languished behind bars. I had read this novel previously. It was wonderful to revisit this nuanced novel on audiobook. Uniformly excellent. Highly recommended! #Audible1

great book..not so great narration<br />

story is very well written and interesting. I really enjoyed the afterward. The only criticism I have is in regard to the narrator. I found it distracting that every character spoke with same tone and inflection. I forced myself to ignore it but I really wished thus was a book I read myself.

This was a great listen

I have never been a fan of Margaret Atwood, something I always feel guilty saying because I think she is one of those authors I should love but I find her books hit and miss for me. However with the intense interest in the media about this book, and after having been to the Kingston Prison where it was filmed and highly promoted I decided to give it a listen and I was surprised at how much I loved it. It is books like this that makes me feel guilty when I say I'm not a fan of Atwood's because it was brilliantly written and well researched. As a historian I always appreciate a well researched historical fiction, and Atwood did not disappoint with this one. Sarah Gadon brought Grace to life and made the 15 hours fly by

A woman who needed to be saved!?!?

The book offers a glimpse into Canadian life before modernity. The book takes you back in time with it's vivid descriptions and terminologies. Grace’s story is a whirlwind of intrigue. Atwood leaves you wondering if Grace is an innocent victim of circumstance or a calculating temptress.The story highlights familiar sounding city names and places that are famous Canadian cities and still makes the story in international with references to cities abroad. Overall it was very enjoyed to listen to and experience.
