Book Review: The Handmaid’s Tail by Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid's Tale Book CoverTo be honest, I was not thrilled about this book. However, it was the fault of my own and not because I did not like the storyline or appreciate Atwood’s writing style.

I (binge) watched the entire first season of “Handmaid’s Tale” on Hulu when it was first released. So, when the second season was released, I thought it would be a good idea to read the book not only as a reminder of what had happened in season one but because I have been disappointed in the past for watching before reading.

I have to applaud Hulu for how true to the book their adaptation of “Handmaid’s Tale” was. But, the entire first season of the show is the entire book. This is one of those books that does not have an “ending” and anything could have happened. And, when I say anything I mean ANYTHING.

I was so frustrated at the end of this book I could have cried! But, this is the perfect book for Hulu to make into a TV series because now, they have complete control over how this story will end. I guess I’ll just have to (binge) watch to get my answers!
