Review: THE HANDMAID’S TALE by Margaret Atwood

  2. I saw the film version and read this book for my Intro to Women’s Studies class in college. This is a good book to read and I would recommend it.

  3. Just read it two years ago after hearing so much about it over the years, and yes, I agree with you completely.

  4. I read this years ago when it first was published. Loved it, was disturbed by it, and still think about it. Good book.
