Journal Entry 1 by trygvasson from Hamburg - Hohenfelde, Hamburg Germany on Saturday, December 23, 2017
Offred is a handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She has only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred´s nor that of the two men on which her future hangs.

Dystopian account told by Offred - living in a repressive state, that cannot repress people´s desire for power or money and spending it on pleasuring themselves.

I found it a bit bland and repetitive. But still worth a read.

Will drop it during travels ...
