the handmaid’s tale by margaret atwood

undisputable classic.

heavy but essential read. awfully scary too. recent years showed me how easy it is to erase all equality progress, so gilead was terrifying in it’s authenticity. i could imagine book events unfolding in real life way too easily.

so, be careful if you pick this book as the next thing to read. make sure you have someone to hug. ideally, don’t read in winter.
