Jenny (notestothemoon) | 846 comments This thread is for any random chat about The Handmaid's Tale

There is no separate thread for spoilers, so if you're going to give away a big old story line please warn people!

***SPOILER ALERT**** - that'll probably do it :P

Cecily | 576 comments I finished this more quickly than I expected, and I have read it before, but it was really good: there is so much in it.

I can't see why it was banned anywhere (other than the sort of totalitarian states it resembles). It may not be suitable for most 10 year olds, but few would want to read it. As it is, it's a fascinating and insightful probe into all sorts of important issues.

Nikki (nikkibfabulous) I agree CFSR. Maybe because it would get people to really start thinking about how much power government actually has. I enjoyed the book.
