    Writing style tough to read

    An interesting story and gripping concept. I watched the newly aired tv adaptation so I had an idea of what to expect. If I hadn't seen the show first I think this book wouldn't have held my interest. Mainly the writing style is a bit difficult to follow. Being written as mostly narrative it can be verbose at times. However, I'm glad I read this book. The ending was not in a style that I would prefer but overall a very compelling storyline that could speak to the hearts of women everywhere. Bottom line: This is a rare time when I think the television adaptation is actually better than the book.

    An amazing introduction to Atwood

    This book has been my introduction to Margaret Atwood and I have to count it as one of the most interesting works I've read. That's perhaps not the highest of praise one can give, but it truly is a fascinating book. The way the author creates a world of thoughts and emotions is truly amazing.

    The handmaids tale

    Wow. I will say that after reading this book I went to the bank and took out all my money. In this paranoid time we ARE living and I do not doubt that in future history books will also list that, this book is scary , a head shaker, a biting of the lip, sweating- I wiped the sweat off my face a few times ha.As a barren woman that I am, I truly can understand the pressure to have that darling baby bump and sweet baby names . To take pictures and gloat over that precious angel on social ,media and in that Mommy circle. Oh and that proud grandma. Thank you for the read, I really needed it. I am watching the show on Bravo as well.

    The Relevancy of Handmaid's Tale

    Everyone should read this book. It is so relevant to the events of our time. Men and women both need to stand up for equality so that this never happens.

    Important novel

    A must read book and all too relevant in our current political culture in America. To all my fellow feminists, don't be ashamed if you cry while reading; I cried with the story too. The possibilities that are described in this story could too easily be ours if we allow it.
