Earlier this summer a few friends and I started a book club. This month, we read A Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. It was an interesting read about a futuristic dystopia told by Offred, the Handmaid. We never learn her real name - only that she is the Handmaid of a Commander whose first name is Fred. This is how all the handmaids are named as part of their Commanders' identities. Her voice was compelling and I was so drawn into her story. I loved the way she flipped from present to flashbacks. While I can't say I loved the book, I have to say that I couldn't put it down. I finished it in less than a week and gave it four stars on Goodreads.
What are y'all reading now? Any friends in Pasadena want to join us next month?
