After roughly six months of avoiding fiction, I dove back into the mix with this book.
1) I love Margaret Atwood.
2) I am not entirely sure how I feel about this book.
I feel like The Handmaid’s Tale was necessary whereas this book felt like piling on. Tragedy porn.
I do recommend you read it for yourself. After discussing this book with several friends, I have found that those who watch the television show really enjoy the book, and those who have not watched the show (this includes me) feel the book was not really needed to continue the story.
*On October 30th, I returned this book to my friend and decided to not finish it.
