A novel that brilliantly illuminates some of the darker interconnections between politics and sex!

After watching some of 'The Handmaid's Tale' on Hulu, starring Elizabeth Moss and some of my other fave actors, I became very curious on how the book fared in comparison. As such, I've added this novel to my 'books to read' collection! 'The Handmaid's Tale' has even been nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read.

As stated on the Barnes & Noble website, the summary for 'The Handmaid's Tale' is:

"Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable.

Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now….

Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid's Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and literary tour de force."

If anyone else is interested in checking out the book 'The Handmaid's Tale' by Margaret Atwood, please click the source link up above!

Pros:

- Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.
- Has its own Hulu series.
- The #1 New York Times bestseller and seminal work of speculative fiction from the Booker Prize-winning author.

Bottom Line:

I loved the show, and hope the book is even better! I recommend it for anyone interested in either the novel or show.
