animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook

the handmaid’s tale (book)

While post-apocalyptic might be my favorite genre, dystopian is my second favorite. This novel really delivered. I only wish I would have read it before I watched the show (which is also excellent). I tend to enjoy books more if I read them before watching their tv or movie counterpart. I’m not sure why. The book definitely had some differences from the show, but it was mostly the same (I could totally picture some of the scenes from the show while reading).

For those of you who might want to read and/or watch, know this: the first season of the series covers the book and the remaining seasons are “made up”.

My rating: 4/5
