The Handmaid's Tale by boxplayer

The Handmaid's Tale

Read this when it first came out in the 80s so a while back. Have been eager to read it again having seen the TV adaptation. Very good it is and very prescient. The TV series used a lot from it surprisingly including dialogue.

A lazy day because of my extra bank holiday. So a lie in. Then breakfast outside, where I just stayed most of the morning finishing my book. Played a bit of melodeon and did a massive photo upload.

I read this for the first time a couple of years ago and thought it was amazing... a little scary too!

I've just started watching the third series, but never read the book. It's bleak, depressing but incredibly good!

@blightygal Oh yes, feels so like it could happen rather worryingly ... hope you're well!
