I couldn't put this book down and yet I had such a sense of unease while reading it. I think that might be what the author wanted. Very disturbing and I had to keep reminding myself that it was written twenty-five years ago,that it is science fiction, and that hopefully we have moved beyond the states of politics, religion and ecology that Atwood was so obviously writing about. But have we?
