The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood
I feel hopelessly slow at writing about books, maybe because I am. Odd.
The good part is, this book is good enough that I actually remember what it’s about! A creepy 1984-like setting, but more from a woman’s point of view. The government has total power, the underlings quake, there is a very obvious pecking order and your class is decided for you. Rather dystopian.
Recommended? Hmm, well, it’s neither better nor worse than 1984, nor does it add much. However, it’s not bad, so if you get the chance go ahead and read it. Says the oracle.
