This retelling of a classic shed new insight and made me appreciated her skills even more! I am very impressed as this Tempest is a difficult plot-line to flush out

I haven't read any Margaret Atwood for quite some while, but I did enjoy this audiobook version of an intricate modern take on Shakespeare's 'TheTempest'.
