Having thoroughly enjoyed Alias Grace, which I picked up in a charity shop recently, I next decided to read Cat's Eye as I had seen it mentioned frequently in the "favourite reads" thread.
Granted, it is very well written, but I found it a deeply disturbing read- I had to finish it, but I didn't enjoy reading it. I'm not sure that I was supposed to (?)
It just made me feel so depressed at the thought of my own existence, I had to go straight for one of Malcolm Pryce's Aberystwyth novels!
What does this mean? I've not experienced anything like this before.
