Female Rights of Passage

I'd like to recommend two books... seeing as this book group has gone strangely silent in recent months.

1. Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides

2. Cats Eye - Margaret Atwood

These are both very powerful books dealing with female rights of passage. Middlesex, whilst being very explicitly about gender and sexuality, still is much more about finding your way throught society and finding your own place. Cats Eye on the other hand is very much about coming to terms with the person you were in childhood, and being able to reconcile these two halves of yourself in an attempt to form a unified whole.

Hi guys!
I’d prefer reading in my native language, because my knowledge of your languange is no so well. But it was interesting! Look for some my links:

I like Margart Atwood. I've only read "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Alias Grace" so far. I think I'll add "Cats Eye" to my reading list! Your description sounds interesting.
Middlesex might interest me, too.
