I have heard, especially over the last few years, how The Handmaid's Tale is eerily similar to our present day. And while we aren't living in Gilead exactly, I couldn't help notice the comparisons as well. It's a brilliant feminist novel on women living in a patriarchal society. I think we can all relate to that, yes?

The book was originally published in 1985, and the sequel is set to be released in September 2019. Thank God too, I don't know what I'd do if there wasn't going to be a follow-up to this story. We need a voice like Margaret Atwood, as much now as we ever have.
