The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

handmaid

I was hesitant to re-read this novel since I remembered it fondly from its debut in my late teens. But I decided to at least try again, before I read “The Testaments“. And full disclaimer – I’m not an Atwood fan. This novel is incredible – the tone, the pacing, the subtlety, the tight plot. What a dystopian vision. I was sad for it to end.
