Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood

As only three (of the seven) members had finished reading the book it seemed a bit pointless following the questions. Instead those who hadn't finished (or started) it gave their reasons why - Christmas preparations being one of them! The issues of bullying and the negative self esteem sat wrongly for some.

For those who had finished reading, their reasons were that they wanted to see if redemption and forgiveness were there at the end - or did Elaine fight back against her tormentors? if at all. Another wanted to see what coping strategies were used.

For me it was a bit of a journey - a bit uncomfortable in places (although thankfully I've never been buried alive etc:) ) but I felt I really needed to finish reading this particular book.
