disappointing

The Heart Goes Last: A Novel (Positron) - Margaret Atwood

I rank Margaret Atwood among the best contemporary novelists but this was a disappointment. The premise is promising, but I've seen enough summaries to know how the story goes and nothing about it intrigues. I have read her for the joy of the language/voice alone, but not even that kept me engaged, and a few chapters was all I could take. Oh well. Nobody gets it right every time, or maybe it's just me.
