The truth is it isn't either of these. While some of the situations are greatly exaggerated, this book comments on the way that women interact with each other on a day-to-day basis. Atwood tells the story of three women, and how they are drawn together because they have all been double-crossed by a mutual female

From the time that the novel starts to the end, Fezzik achieves a good self image. He starts out with a very low self image
