it was ok
bookshelves: post-apocalyptic

I read this book because I had read Oryx and Crake and thought that novel was great. The Handmaid's Tale was not as good as I had hoped after reading Oryx and Crake and that is probably why I have given The Handmaid's Tale a much lower rating.
The Story in The Handmaid's Tale while interesting by itself, does not seem as rich as Oryx and Crake. I know your are supposed to judge a book by it's own merits but that is how I feel about this.
