    Great new dystopian world

    Fantastic but scary. Well paced, nothing superfluous. You can see how something like this may happen for real. Loved the not so veiled reference to current American political situation. Well worth the read especially if you enjoyed “the handmaid’s take”.

    Great read!

    I had some very late nights trying to finish this book. If you like dystopian stories, then you will love this one!

    Inferior version of Handmaid's Tale

    Similar premise to Handmaids Tale. It kind of feels like this book is riding on the coattails of its recent success as a book to TV show. Like HT, Middle America is taken over by stealth by religious zealots who believe women's true calling is home and hearth. The twist here is that, rather than just being assigned new 'roles', women are also limited to a certain number of words per day. Exceeding that number brings a painful electric shock which increases in frequency and can cause burns. Starts promisingly but just too neatly tidied up for me.

    Enttäuschend und schlecht geschrieben

    Selten hat mich ein so hochgelobtes Buch so enttäuscht. Wo die guten Rezensionen herkommen ist mir ein Rätsel. Die Grundidee war ganz gut und die "bestselling" Aussage hat mich dazu verleitet, es zu kaufen. Aber im Verlauf passiert nicht wirklich viel Spannendes, teilweise sehr vorausschaubar, und vor allem der Stil ist schlecht. Teilweise zusammenhanglos, schlechte/plötzliche Übergänge und irgndwie lieblos ausgeführt. Da hätte man wesentlich mehr draus machen können, wirklich sehr schade. Den einen Stern gibt es für die Grundidee, die Ausführung ist leider total gescheitert. Es ist mir wirklich schwer gefallen, es überhaupt zu Ende zu lesen.
