#1 New York Times bestseller Look for The Testaments , the sequel to The Handmaid's Tale , available now. An instant classic and eerily prescient cultural phenomenon, from "the patron saint of feminist dystopian fiction" ( New York Times ). Now an award-winning Hulu series starring Elizabeth Moss. In Margaret Atwood's dystopian future, environmental disasters and declining birthrates have led to a Second American Civil War. The result is the rise of the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian regime that enforces rigid social roles and enslaves the few remaining fertile women. Offred is one of these, a Handmaid bound to produce children for one of Gilead's commanders. Deprived of her husband, her child, her freedom, and even her own name, Offred clings to her memories and her will to survive. At once a scathing satire, an ominous warning, and a tour de force of narrative suspense, The Handmaid's Tale is a modern classic. Includes an introduction by Margaret Atwood

Geo, when this was written our world wasn't being controlled by feminism 2.0
I watched it without even thinking of that hyper fem msg. and I'm a woman , but I can't read it now because of our current over the top cancel culture.

Her novel is based on real things that have actually happened in the world, many things are not fiction. Stop trying to make a great novel out to be a piece of extremism.

I agree with Sanna but I assume that you meant "a piece of feminist extremism"?
Anyhow, the novel is a terrifying depiction of how society can develop and I think that all should read it to keep our society from turning out like this one.

Amazing book. Read it when I was in 9th grade, and again recently. I think the metaphorical language and "unreliable", unnamed narrator help fully immerse you into the world, despite it being a horrible world I am grateful for this book. Overlap between personal and political always leads to downfall, and we need to be reminded of that every so often.
