Tamra
The Handmaid's Tale | MARGARET. ATWOOD
post image

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. 4h
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) 4h
Leftcoastzen Indeed . Every time a story came on TV or radio that leans this direction, a little thing in my brain goes click! 4h
Suet624 It‘s frightening. 3h

Mehso-so

A fairly standard post-apocalypse zombie comic, nothing you won't have seen before. It's not without a certain bleak charm, though why anybody wanted to adapt it as a TV show is beyond me, as there's no plot and no characterisation, and nothing to distinguish it within the genre. Not awful, but so-so.

The moment these scholars told me they love to smell the pages of books, they instantly became book club members! I thought I was the only one in the world who did this.

I enjoyed this one almost as much as I enjoyed the first two books. It kind of lost me at the end as I felt it moved too quickly too suddenly

Or dipping your toe into something you‘ve been scared of your whole life. Happily ever after could be waiting in a field a mile wide. Or a window as narrow as seven minutes.

I just couldn‘t get into this one. I think it‘s really just the genre for me is so hit or miss and this one just did not grab my attention at first and I just had such a hard time getting into it. Not really my cup of tea, but I can see how some people would enjoy this one!

Snowpiercer meets Roadside Picnic meets The Hike. Don‘t think I will continue the series, but this was delightfully tense and weird and claustrophobic.
