I was disappointed. I, maybe, expected too much from Atwood which I usually love. Penelope became under her guidance this whinny, very unlikable character. The idea of Ulysses leaving her in the Elysians fields to roam the world even after death is not strange but that Atwood still made Penelope a passive character even after death was. Maybe I remember it wrong but I remember a strong Penelope from the Odysseus not this weak, whinny character.
