One of the best books I’ve read, it will keep you on your seat and questioning. It is spectacular, never what you’d expect, and I cannot wait until the second book comes out.

I read Atwood’s book when it was originally published. Hearing that a sequel was now being written had caused me to re-read this suspenseful novel. I like the authors reimagining what life could be like so far in the future. It was believable and related well to current events.
I am so looking forward to the sequel as it is long overdue. More “historical” background would have been helpful in understanding the regime. There weren’t quite enough political and cultural details to rate this novel a five and yet; a compelling story!
I love the message, I don’t think it’s some sort of “feminist propaganda” (eyeroll) but I couldn’t get over the writing. The metaphors and similes seemed overdone, to the point where she’d be describing a staircase and by the end of the sentence I had to reread it to remember what she was talking about in the first place. I can get over a few examples of that, but it seemed like the entire book was one long sentence with too many commas and muddy comparisons. It reminded me of trying to fill a word count for a school assignment.
Eerily voyeuristic 1980’s sci-fi masterpiece that reflects incredible insight into our society today in 2018, especially the male chauvinistic, white supremacist political precipice from which we hang in terror, right now...
It's amazing that I even need to point this out. And now it's being pushed to an extreme extent in the series.
This is creating a war between men and women that is extremely dangerous. Third wave feminism is a cancer to society.
Pleas do not support these dangerous ideas with a purchase.
I enjoyed the story overall but I’m confused about the ending
