The Handmaid's Tale
by Margaret Atwood [Atwood]
This book really made me think. Reading it made me start to question ideas that I had been brought up with. I'm glad I got that kind of result, as that it what I feel books are for- to show us a new perspective or flip ours upside down. Upon reading the final "Author's Note," it is revealed that the book is based on a series of transcripts (fictional) found by scholars. The second time I would like to explore the story, I think I would like to listen to an audiobook copy, to make it more immersive. -- review submitted by Gillian T. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
