The Handmaid’s Tale (1985) by Margaret Atwood was one of those books that I’ve heard a lot about: one that’s often banned, feminist, a classic, but one that I never got around to reading until now. I knew that it was about a world where women were forced to be “breeders” of children, but that’s about it. I was a little unsure before I started. I figured it could be one of those classics that might be well written but was a slog to read, or if it would be one I would really appreciate. I was not disappointed.
