The Handmaid's Tale

The Handmaid's Tale By Maragret Atwood

Book Review

(by- Linda )

The society this book depicts is one without freedom, one that is controlled by extremists- the ultra conservative type with zero tolerance for pleasure. Although far-fetched, it does provoke thought as it portrays the human condition and the ability to adjust. Many of the situations are disturbing. People, especially women, are pigeon holed and forced into specific roles - breeders, prostitutes, domestics and propagandists. Margaret Atwood takes you into this world and lets you experience it - her descriptions are amazing. Beware however that the mood of the book is dark and somber. Recommend for those that enjoy a good dystopian novel
