The Handmaid's Tale
The Handmaid's Tale | Margaret Atwood
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She has only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs.

Quite a chilling tale of a possible future dystopia from the viewpoint of a handmaid, Offred (belonging to Fred). Womens rights are greatly restricted and some men are in total control. I haven't seen the movie or the TV series but I have looked at the recent graphic novel. I recommend it for open-minded adults or older teens. Reminds me of 1984 a bit.

Starting this book that is often banned. I haven‘t seen any of the modern TV series but I know a little bit about it. Hope it never comes to be!

I just rewatched season 1 of the screen adaption of The Handmaid‘s Tale and I have to say, there is some serious sh*t going on in the US today that uncomfortably resembles Atwood‘s dystopia. On multiple fronts. 🥹

Leftcoastzen It seemed so dystopian when I read it upon publication, after the show & a reread recently, it‘s far too close to what‘s currently going on. 3mo
Tamra @Leftcoastzen eerily so. I keep thinking about how Atwood was relating about all the precursor events and nobody paid attention or said anything. It‘s the frog in the pot. (edited) 3mo
Leftcoastzen Indeed . Every time a story came on TV or radio that leans this direction, a little thing in my brain goes click! 3mo

?Movies, yes. I love gory ones, like Hostel and Would You Rather. Creepy can be fun, but I need action. For books, I enjoy a sumputous, creepy setting & and mystery over "horror." They haven't scared me yet. Poltergeist & Exorcisms are NOT my jam. ?

I was at the hairdresser yesterday and they had Monocle issue 164, June 2023, art special, inside they had an interview with Atwood, and it says:
“The American Library Association lists The Handmaid‘s Tale as one of the country‘s most regularly banned books; to illustrate the point, Penguin Random House even produced a special edition of the novel made from fireproof paper and filmed the author blasting it with a frame-thrower.”

I had no idea.

I have a weakness for epistolary novels, but I sometimes forget that in addition to the traditional exchange of #letters💌 they also include a whole range of other forms of documents and communications. I think it‘s fascinating that the tagged book (one of my favorite of all time) makes lists of epistolary novels, when you don‘t learn till the epilogue that it‘s being told as one. #MayMontage @Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

CatLass007
The Handmaid's Tale | MARGARET. ATWOOD

I think today is a day for another #unpopularopinion I read The Handmaid‘s Tale when it was first published. Actually, I only tried to read it. If I had known what #DNF meant back then that‘s what I did. It seems like everyone thinks this is one of the greatest books ever written. I understand that it was groundbreaking. It seems more prescient now than ever. But I just didn‘t like the book. I‘ve never read another #MargaretAtwood book. (cont)⬇️

CatLass007 But I‘ve been thinking about giving her another try sometime this year. So I am requesting recommendations. #TheBlindAssassin is what I‘m leaning toward right now. 12mo
Prairiegirl_reading I have heard the blind assassin is her best. I tried edible woman way back when and swore I‘d never read another but I read oryx and crake a few years ago and I liked that.It‘s pretty dark though. Dystopian. It‘s the first in a trilogy. I liked it enough to continue the series even though I ended up thinking it was the best of the three. 12mo
SaunteringVaguelyDownwards I think Handmaid's Tale feels a lot more stilted than much of Atwood's other work because she's writing it as if it were the recovered manuscripts being debated at an academic conference many years after the fact. I agree that Blind Assassin and Oryx and Crake are closer to her normal storytelling style. 12mo
See All 23 Comments
CatLass007 @Prairiegirl_reading @SaunteringVaguelyDownwards Thank you for your comments and opinions. I value the thoughts and thoughtfulness of all my Litsy friends. 12mo
TheKidUpstairs What kind/genre of books do you generally lean towards? One of the things I love about Atwood is that she writes in so many different genres, so even if some of her books don't work for you, it doesn't mean that none of them will! A few of my favourites: Alias Grace (historical fiction), Oryx and Crake (dystopian society/speculative fiction), The Robber Bride (literary fiction about complicated friendships), The Penelopiad (mythology retelling). 12mo
TheKidUpstairs @Prairiegirl_reading I did the same thing, with the exact same books! I hated Edible Woman and thought I just didn't like Atwood. Until a friend forced Oryx and Crake into my hands and I read it in a weekend! 12mo
Daisey I didn‘t enjoy The Handmaid‘s Tale either, but I‘m more of a historical fiction reader and really enjoyed Alias Grace. 12mo
CatLass007 @TheKidUpstairs I like almost all genres. I don‘t really care much for romance when it‘s the only focus of the book. I outgrew Barbara Cartland, Danielle Steele, and Harlequin Romance when I was still in high school. I‘ve even enjoyed the occasional Western (anything by Robert B Parker is an automatic read and even re-read, I tried some of the authors with whom the estate contracted, and they were a disappointment). SFF, mystery, biography… 12mo
CatLass007 Also, what exactly is speculative fiction? It all seems like science fiction to me. I think dystopian fiction is just a sub-genre of science fiction. Okay, I confess, I‘m old and out of touch. 😆 12mo
TheKidUpstairs @CatLass007 LOL, it does seem like so many different ways to say the same thing, doesn't it! Yes, I think speculative fiction is another sub-genre of science fiction. I guess I think of it as “If the science being done now continues to its possible conclusion, this is where we could end up“. If that makes any sense. One of those things I don't really know the definition of, but I know it when I read it 😆 12mo
TheKidUpstairs @CatLass007 None of her books (that I've read) really focus on romance as the main storyline, which is nice. Her more contemporary (well, contemporary to the time she wrote them) literary fiction works tend to focus more on relationships between friends and family - The Robber Bride and Cat's Eye are two of my favourites for that. Alias Grace is my all time number one (historical fiction with an unreliable narrator thrown in). 12mo
TheKidUpstairs Unpopular Opinion: I did not like Blind Assassin. I know lots of people who loved it, but it just didn't do it for me, and I'm not sure it's one of her more accessible works (not that that's necessarily a bad thing) 12mo
CatLass007 @TheKidUpstairs Thanks for the, not a definition, more like a connotation. I wasn‘t really referring to romance in Atwood‘s books. Just romance in general, e.g. Bridgerton. 12mo
CatLass007 And I don‘t really care for anything with zombies. I tried listening to Peter Clines‘s Ex-Heroes and I was quite disappointed. At least Audible has a return policy. 12mo
CuriousG Alias Grace is good, and I also liked Oryx and Crake 12mo
CuriousG One of my favourites that never gets discussed is HagSeed. It is a contemporary take on The Tempest. 12mo
KathyWheeler @CuriousG You‘re right! I never realized that HagSeed rarely gets discussed when Atwood‘s work is talked about, but I loved it. 12mo
CatLass007 @CuriousG @KathyWheeler I‘ve never seen HagSeed mentioned in any discussion of Atwood‘s work. I think I‘d remember that title. 12mo
KathyWheeler @CatLass007 There‘s a series of books by Hogarth Press that are modern takes (very loosely) of Shakespeare plays. HagSeed is Atwood‘s contribution to that series. 12mo
CatLass007 @KathyWheeler I noticed that when I looked up the book on Audible. I guess I‘ll have to add them to the infinite wish list. 12mo
rwmg If you're uncertain about Atwood, I would definitely recommend the Penelopiad (a re-telling of the Odyssey) because it's short.

My understanding is that speculative fiction is a catch-all term to cover science fiction, fantasy, superhero, and supernatural/paranormal fiction, and probably other genres/subgenres as well.
12mo
CatLass007 @rwmg I looked at the Penelopiad and I enjoy mythology so it‘s something I‘m considering. Last year I listened to both Circe and The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. Both were excellent. 12mo
SaunteringVaguelyDownwards @CatLass007 Speculative fiction is an umbrella category to describe genres where the narrative is generated by speculation. It includes science fiction (what would the world look like in the future if...?), fantasy (what would the world look like if magic/dragons/witches/etc existed?), and historical fiction (what would the world be like if X event had been different?) 12mo

I found this one and what an incredible book, everything so vividly described, I felt like I was there, in this horrifying world. Terrifying, dark, and emotional story of a woman trapped in an unthinkable situation and all her memories and desires to reunite with her family makes this a must read book for everybody.

This is the 3rd time I have read this book and each time a different memory of the book stays with me. The 1st time, it was the horror of the breeding ceremony. I was a teenager at the time. The 2nd time, I convinced myself of a ending/storyline that isn‘t in the book. Now this 3rd time; I‘m reading it as one of the banned books on this season of Book Interrupted and realizing how scary the potential of something like this actually happening is.

Thoughts: TERRIFYING. I am not a huge fan of dystopian novels for that one word: terrifying. As someone who prefers film noir about stories in the past, seeing what the future might hold is frightening. Atwood has a way of making me care, and Offred was stunningly portrayed as the complex character she is: she goes along with society but shuns it inwardly. A must read in today's crazy world.

Finished my first #trappedonanisland book. I wish I could say I loved it, but that would be a lie. I think the issue is that this doesn't make for a good audiobook. I have this marked to actually go back and read the book. I do this sometimes with certain books. Sometimes the narrative lacks dialogue and I lose interest.

@HeathHof

TheBookHippie I read it when it came out and just devoured it. (hard to believe I am this old) I reread it recently and was like MEH... then I read the graphic novel and loved it! Ha.. 2y
Ruthiella I am also old enough to have read it when it first came out and I reread it when The Testaments came out and for me it held up 30 some years later. 2y
Tove_Reads I didn‘t care for it at all. 2y
IndoorDame I first read it in the late 90s (which I guess gives you an idea of how old I am) and loved it! And reread it recently and found there were parts that didn‘t hold up. But despite that it remains one of my favorites, along with the GN which is amazing! 2y

Many would be familiar with the novel, and for those who haven‘t read the original text, (ahem, like me) would also have some passing knowledge of it, especially after the much publicised Hulu adaptation. I thought this graphic novel take by Renée Nault is a nice cheat for me to tick off my TBR list. The artwork cleverly uses colours and visual symbols to give an unsettling feeling. I could follow the story, so ⬇️

erzascarletbookgasm ….I guess the essence of it is maintained. But I did find difficulty in telling apart the Handmaids, and their red uniforms seem a little too glamorous, alluring. 🤷‍♀️ But go read it, see if it‘s a great companion to the original story. (edited) 2y
