Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, November 27, 2018
I got this softcover from a local Goodwill thrift shop, for another release copy.

I first read "The Handmaid's Tale" long,long ago, not long after it came out, and was both chilled and infuriated by the society that it depicted. Things have changed for the better since this book was written, but current events, especially regarding government interference in reproductive and marital choices, suggest that the book's still all too relevant. I admit that I've avoided the current mini-series adaptation because the story made me too angry to want to go through it again {rueful grin}.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the novel and on its adaptation, with some interesting tidbits.]
