The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood

Quick reflection on this book.

I'm not sure what to say about The Handmaid's Tale. It terrified and fascinated me and everything in between. Atwood made me believe that this society could become reality despite how different it is from today's. This is also my first time reading anything by Atwood and I think it's safe to say she has a knack for story telling. On the other hand I wasn't enticed by the writing, but I can't say if it's the author's style or simply the voice of the protagonist. Either way, I will be reading more by Atwood. The Handmaid's Tale should definitely be read by most people due to the topic it handles. An important book, that's for sure.
