Books: The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood


The Handmaid's TaleThe Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wanted to read Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel before watching the television adaptation. I have been let down by hype before, but “The Handmaid’s Tale” lives up to its fame. This is a powerful and hard-hitting tale of a theocratic dictatorship that may have seemed far-fetched back in 1985, but is entirely plausible in the new world order of 2017. Highly recommended.
