Book Review – The Handmaid’s Tale

The Handmaid's TaleThe Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy hell this book was way better than I was expecting. In fact, it was completely different from what I expected. I hadn’t read any of Atwood’s work before, so I didn’t really know much about how she approaches books. Her writing style is fascinating, especially when you know that she writes a lot of poetry. But her storytelling is really what got me. I got completely absorbed with the narrating character and the various people in her story. It was one of those books I wanted to rush through because I thought the answers to all my questions were on the next page or in the next chapter. “Surely, this is the chapter I’ll get more info!” And when I finally got to the end…I almost wanted to throw my Kindle across the room. In other words, it was fantastic.

Be sure to read the “Historical Facts” bit too!
