I read this book before, when I was really too young to have an emotional reaction to it. Today I had what I suspect might be an emotional overreaction to it, possibly because I’m sick and that always makes me emotional. I don’t know; it’s a tough book. I think it’s Atwood’s best writing out of the handful of books I’ve read from her. Offred feels like a real person in ways that are complicated and sad. She thinks a lot of the things she’d like to do or say but doesn’t do or say any of them because she’s scared. That’s realistic. I’ve read reviews of this where people are frustrated with her for not being more proactive—which I totally get—but most people wouldn’t be that proactive in her shoes. Most people would do what she does, which is shrink into herself for protection and look for extremely small things to anchor herself to in order to keep going because she’d rather be alive than dead and that’s realistic. Offred feels like a real person and that’s probably this book’s greatest strength because it’s so much about a society trying to make women into an idea instead of dealing with them as human beings and letting their intrinsic humanity be all the defense they need to be treated as equals. Anyway, it’s a great book but everybody already knows that; everybody’s read it before or watched the show I can’t bring myself to watch because I think it’ll bum me out too much. Not a perfect book but one that’s doing what it’s trying to do really well. ( )

I started this book expecting it to be an all out dystopia but didn't know I was setting myself up for a surprise. But let me not jump the horses and start from the beginning or what I think should be the beginning.
The writing style is very simple yet the insights are very profound , the writer expresses complex human feeling with extreme ease; this is one of the biggest USP of this novel.
Also another important feature that was prevalent through out the novel was the incremental clarity it provided. I felt as if I was walking enshrouded with fog and with every step a little more detail could be perceived more clearly , this was prevalent in both the flashbacks she provided, which started as short vague episodes and transitioned incrementally into a full fledged chapter, as well as disclosing the world current "offred" resided and how it came to be. Also, the intent of the narration is not clear but gains clarity as it progresses. I remember thinking the protagonist was speaking to herself to gain a semblance of control over her life and slowly growing into the realization that this , infact is a narration intended for an audience. I am taking the liberty of classifying the above stated feeling also into this "incremental clarity" quota.

Going to the setting of the novel , though the specific or granular features are very different yet I cannot help but feel a similarity with 1984 in the broader sense of comparison. Having said that , this book is not predictable at all - be it offred's relation with the commander , the night of the ceremony. The novel is also not without its thrilling moments.

The biggest problem I found in this book was the ending was very hurried. The thing between Nick and offred seemed immature and not well thought out or premature . I will go ahead and say the Nick and offred angle was a disaster, she could have handled it better . Yet , maybe this was her intent ; in such an abnormal world - not all actions have a well thought out reasons. Well thought out reasons are privilege of a normal world.

I also remember struggling with the notion whether this book falls in the "feminist" area. I was unsure of it till a long way into the novel. I remember having a discussion with my boyfriend and realizing that both he and I feeling very different . I , personally, felt horrified and could easily visualize myself as either Serena Joy or even a handmaid ; whereas , he , on further probing disclosed he didnot connect with the female characters and did not feel so threatened .
" He doesn’t mind it at all. Maybe he even likes it. We are not each other’s, any more. Instead, I am his."

This line cleared my thought and I decided it would surely be a feminist novel.

Finally, the ending , the ending changes everything. Being convinced it was an all out dystopic novel I was fairly surprised to such a great extent that the genre shifted for me. It is no longer a dystopic novel for me , though I am confused where should I actually put it. The ending was sweeter, almost bordering on optimism, than I expected.

Just for this hurried , unfinished ending - this novel lost 1 star from me. Ironically , this book will be in my favourite's list just for the ending. ( )

3.5 stars

I did really enjoy reading this book but I felt myself wanting more. But I'm thinking that was Atwood's intention. Offred had limited knowledge and then so did the reader. I'll post more soon! ( )

I loved the concept of this book, it's dark and troubling and has some excellent scenes. I struggled with it in parts, mostly due to it being a bit dry - still very worth the read and an excellent twist at the end - quite different in places to the TV Series. ( )

And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister, and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die.

And Jacob’s anger was kindled against Rachel, and he said, Am I in God’s stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

And she said, Behold my maid Bihah, go in unto her, and she shall bear upon my knees, that I may also have children by her.
                              — Genesis 30:1–3
But as to myself, having been wearied out for many years with offering vain, idle, visionary thoughts, and at length utterly despairing of success, I fortunately fell upon this proposal . . .

As all historians know, the past is a great darkness, and filled with echoes. Voices may reach us from it; but what they say to us is imbued with the obscurity of the matrix out of which they come; and, try as we may, we cannot always decipher them precisely in the clearer light of our own day.
Time has not stood still. It has washed over me, washed me away, as if I’m nothing more than a woman of sand, left by a careless child too near the water.
The shell of the egg is smooth but also grained; small pebbles of calcium are defined by the sunlight, like craters on the moon. It’s a barren landscape, yet perfect; it’s the sort of desert the saints went into, so their minds would not be distracted by profusions. I think that this is what God must look like: an egg. The life of the moon may not be on the surface, but inside.
But remember that forgiveness too is a power. To beg for it is a power, and to withhold or bestow it is a power, perhaps the greatest. Maybe none of this is about control ... Maybe it’s about who can do what to whom and be forgiven for it. Never tell me it amounts to the same thing.
There is more than one kind of freedom, said Aunt Lydia, freedom to and freedom from. In the days of anarchy, it was freedom to. Now you are being given freedom from. Don’t underrate it.
