The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood

I didn't have an opportunity to write a review for this when I finished it several weeks ago, so I'm going to write a *very* brief review. I read this for Dystopian Hellscape. It was the first dystopian I'd read for ages and I loved it. Yes, it had a cloying, claustrophobic atmosphere, but that's exactly what it needed. It was equal parts riveting and shocking and even though Atwood's style was at times a little dry I could hardly put it down. I've already got TheTestaments and plan to read it as soon as I've gotten over this part of the story.


I transfigured A Grimm Tale to Dystopian Hellscape for this one.
