johncoxon: ([Me] Reading)

16) The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

This is a classic, I have been told by many people, and as such I’ve been meaning to read it for ages. Recently, a close friend of mine leant me four books, amongst which was this one; it was the most SFnal of the four, and so I elected to start with it and read the others subsequently (I’m hoping to finish another this weekend, since I want to give them back at the end of June). I started it on the train yesterday evening and read the rest this morning, which gives you an impression of how much the novel gripped me and drove me to keep reading!

Some of my spoilerific thoughts and musings on the novel )

All in all, I am very glad indeed that I read this book.
