The Handmaid’s Tale: Thoughts

Just finished this fascinating book yet it’s very different to other dystopian novels. It does feel strangely plausible with trajectory of world events.

The book’s depiction of the characters’ inner emotion is extraordinary and makes the story feel personal. The every life is rendered perfectly with the references in the shop names, lock-up of sharp objects in the house, and the desire and desperation between the “strangers” living in the same house.
