Roman om tjenestepigen Grace Marks, der som 16-årig i 1843 blev anklaget for medskyld i mordet på sine arbejdsgivere i Toronto, hvortil hun var emigreret fra Irland.
  1. 102
    Slammerkin af Emma Donoghue (ainsleytewce, BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Based on sensational true crimes of yesteryear, these character-driven historical novels focus on young women whose attempts to escape lives of poverty and abuse lead to violence. Both disturbing, suspenseful books present nuanced psychological portraits of their protagonists.… (mere)

    Den røde blomst, den hvide blomst af Michel Faber (girlunderglass)
    girlunderglass: Both books share the impressive power of beautifully and believably conveying a particular place and time - they make the reader not only understand and love the peculiarities of a particular era, but also temporarily feel part of it.

    Uindviet jord af Hannah Kent (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: The Polished Hoe portrays conditions in 20th-century Jamaica, while Burial Rites focuses on 19th-century Iceland, but these exquisitely detailed literary historical novels explore the lives of unusually intelligent women whose treatment by their masters has resulted in terrible crimes.… (mere)
  4. 30
    His Bloody Project: Documents Relating to the Case of Roderick Macrae af Graeme Macrae Burnet (cbl_tn)
    cbl_tn: Both are Booker shortlisted novels that tell the story of a historical crime. Atwood's is based on a real crime.
  5. 30
    Gillespie and I af Jane Harris (souloftherose)
    souloftherose: It's difficult to explain this recommendation without revealing spoilers for either novel. Both are set in the 19th century, feature strong female narrators and concern a crime - and that's all I can say!
  6. 41
    Oscar og Lucinda af Peter Carey (wonderlake)
  7. 30
    The Ballad of Frankie Silver af Sharyn McCrumb (rbtanger)
    rbtanger: Both are historicals about female murderers. And both are equally haunting and mysterious with a good pull at the beginning and a good twist to the end.
  8. 42
    Besættelse af A. S. Byatt (KayCliff)
  9. 20
    The Unseeing af Anna Mazzola (JoEnglish)
  10. 10
    The Bone Garden af Tess Gerritsen (rbtanger)
    rbtanger: The Bone Garden is set a decade earlier than alias Grace, but the atmosphere and feel of the story are very similar.
  11. 11
    Sjælesøstre af Sarah Waters (starbox, souloftherose)
  12. 11
    In a Dark Wood Wandering af Hella S. Haasse (AliceWonders)
  13. 11
    Den lange vinter af Helen Dunmore (1Owlette)
    1Owlette: Although set at different times and in different countries, both works explore similar themes of isolation, marginalization, and the effect of social pressures upon women's mental states, in haunting, beautiful prose.

    Den franske løjtnants kvinde af John Fowles (Nickelini)

Margaret Atwood remains one of my all time favorite authors. With this book, she brings alive a deeply compelling, complex and not completely clear character (Grace Marks). It is a history book, as well as an exploration of class differences and sexual power struggles.

Took me a while to get into it - but once I did, I couldn't stop. ( )

A fascinating account of a true crime that examines the nature of truth and lie from several angles. Sometimes, we tell ourselves stories to shield us from the truth, and sometimes, they become the truth. But what is real? This is the question Atwood asks and then declines to answer for much of the book. ( )

Alias Grace has been the bright spot of my reading the last couple of months. I found I spent the entire novel trying to figure out: Is she guilty or not guilty? If she is guilty, what is she guilty of?

Margaret Atwood does a wonderful job of introducing to Grace, letting you get to know her, and for me, letting me get to like her. What a bright woman, I think, who has gotten no breaks in life but managed to achieve some level of education. If anything, her personal moral code seems to be quite strict. Then "the facts" begin to presented, meaning the facts always come with some doubt. What do I believe or not believe? But I still like Grace and I want her to be innocent.

I have read several of Margaret Atwood's novels. Some have been this good, and some have been more mediocre. I will be remembering Grace for quite some time. ( )

I enjoyed this mysterious murder story, set in 1800s Canada. I appreciated how this book depicted the roles of women and ways that they found to survive outside of marriage during this time period. I didn't love the passages told in verse or correspondence but that is not the majority of the story and whenever Grace was telling her story it really flew. ( )

2 1/2 stars. I should have loved this novel. I tend to love Atwood's writing. It has all the hallmarks of an interesting read. Mystery. Murder. Supernatural elements. Yet, it bored me. ( )

Margaret Atwood has always written her characters from the inside out. She knows them: in their hearts, their bones. For many years now she has been a stylist of sensuous power. In Alias Grace she has surpassed herself, writing with a glittering, singing intensity.

When you are in the middle of a story it isn't a story at all, but only a confusion; a dark roaring, a blindness, a wreckage of shattered glass and splintered wood, like a house in a whirlwind, or else a boat crushed by the icebergs or swept over the rapids, and all aboard powerless to stop it. It's only afterwards that it becomes anything like a story at all. When you are telling it, to yourself or to someone else.
It's 1851. I'll be twenty-four years old next birthday. I've been shut up in here since the age of sixteen. I am a model prisoner, and give no trouble.
Gone mad is what they say, and sometimes Run mad, as if mad is a direction, like west; as if mad is a different house you could step into, or a separate country entirely. But when you go mad you don't go any other place, you stay where you are. And somebody else comes in.
