I recently finished The Handmaid's Tale (6) by Margaret Atwood. This book surprised me! I enjoyed it, even though I had a little bit of a hard time getting into it. The themes of the book seem very relevant to the scary times we are living. As soon as I finished it, I was listening to this report on NPR about Abortion Laws in Texas. And it made me think that the book, which is a " fictional dystopian society" hit on some points that are feel very real right now.
The whole time that I was reading the book, I kept asking myself the same question, Could I live in a society in which I would be only seen as a baby factory? Could I live a life in which I have to do only what is asked of me? Would I survive if I was sent to a farm to do farm labor work?
This book made me think a lot, about many things such as modern feminism, the role of women in society, misogynist behavior, expectations of women, religion. Very Intense book!
I would recommend this book to my sisters and brothers. I already put it in Roger's pile of books to read.
Also reading *again*, Bossy Pants by Tina Fey (7).This book is hilarious! I haven't followed Tina Fey's work, but the book is excellent !
What are you reading now? Did any books leave you with lingering questions?
