It was like an un-sworn oath in Canada. Seeing every friend of a friend of a friend of a friend and so on reading the same author's writings. It was like a plague on society except in a good way. Uncommonly rare is the ability to perceive yourself on the same intellectual as everyone reading even those who are rather stuck behind in the times. The ferocious uproar telling the dark side of debt and the darker sides of the wealthy. Delving into the theological points of views, there was no stone un-turned in the cultural side of her writings. Constantly being pestered for a viewpoint on the current state of her union may have pushed Atwood's writings to an entirely new level of mudslinging and rage towards her government. Comparing Scrooge to our modern day society, really? What an interesting turn of concept.
