I loved "The Handmaid's Tale" so I was expecting to really enjoy this novel. Sadly, I was mistaken. Overall, this is a well written, complex novel that is a story within a story within a story...sounds cool right? But I found the main narration and story are so slow and I had no attachment or interest in the narrator. The story within the story, a novel where the book gets its name, was far more interesting.

It took me months to read this book and I found it just a chore. I an giving it three stars because it was well crafted but I just did not connect with this book.
