Greetings Earthling! Today I’m reviewing The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood which Epic Adaptations October book of the month!
-A: Good story with characters that got better and a slow plot line
“Better never means better for everyone… It always means worse, for some.”
This book was going to be my September book of the month but then I like this book scared me and I figured that it would make an even better pick of October. I’m not joking when I say that this book scared me. Being a woman in this day in age and reading a book about how woman have lost power was really scary for me. This book is so well written and told that you get scared reading it. If you didn’t know this book is about a dystopian where a religious group takes over the United States and it becomes Gilead. Woman have lost all power and a lot of them aren’t fertile but the ones who are become Handmaids who are sent to the houses of others and they have to get pregnant for that couple.
This book we follow Offred who is a handmaid and we follow go through all this stuff. Like being the Handmaid for the Commander and his wife Serena Joy. I’m currently watching the show which is great and a wonderful adaptation of this book but there will be a whole review coming soon. We watch her go through all these things and it’s soo good!!! When I finished this book I had to like take a second and think about everything. If I’m being honest reading this during the period we are at right now probably wasn’t the best because now I’m super scared for the future of the country. Every time I read a dystopian novel I like to rank the society by how terrible it is like the Selection is not that bad, Divergent is okay I’m mean I’m not that scared of it, Hunger Games is just terrible like that’s the worse. But this one takes the top of the list because damn.
This book is amazing. It’s so well and beautifully told. If you like Dystopians then read this book! It doesn’t matter in reality if you enjoy books at all then read this book because it is so amazing! The show also just won a lot of emmys so that’s also a good reason to watch the show and read the books. That’s it for my review of the book! My review for the show is next week so look out for that. I really want to go back to writing only once a week because so how I ended up posting twice a week which I’m not really into.
It’s a lot of pressure and a lot of work and I’m currently going through a lot right now so I need to go back to posting once a week. Sorry not Sorry. This review wasn’t my best I’m just under a lot pressure and I’ve been really pretty sick lately so this was rushed.
