What is The Handmaid's Tale? Just kidding. I am sure you have heard of the hit Hulu series, but did you know it was a book first? Amazon has the Handmaid's Tale Kindle Edition for just $2.99. This is down from its original $15.95 price.
So what is this book about?
"Formerly the United States, far-right Schlafly/Falwell-type ideals have been carried to extremes in the monotheocratic government. The resulting society is a feminist's nightmare: women are strictly controlled, unable to have jobs or money and assigned to various classes: the chaste, childless Wives; the housekeeping Marthas; and the reproductive Handmaids, who turn their offspring over to the morally fit wives" This story is told by the handmaid Offred who recalls how this society came to be.
Deep, am I right?
"The Handmaid's Tale is in the honorable tradition of Brave New World and other warnings of dystopia. It's imaginative even audacious, and conveys a chilling sense of fear and menace." —The Globe and Mail
