the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read She must lie on her back once a mon I guess Atwood doesn t believe in uotation marks I don t think I ve ever come across a novel yet in which there is no distinction between the narrator and the character It took me uite a while to get used to that type of style of writing I had to go back and re read sentences again and again which doesn t really lend itself to a relaxing reading experience and it slowed me down uite a bitFirst 100 pagesReally annoyingwhy well because I felt like a juicy bone was being waved in front of my face Like when someone asks you guess which celebrity died today and you ask who and they say well why don t you guess and you answer I don t know I give up just tell me and this keeps going back and forth back and forth and finally you just want to say forget it it s not even worth it and walk away That s how I felt reading this book Kinda like Atwood was being childish about withholding the plot information because it gave her literary power and control over the reader and keeps them hostageThen I couldn t ignore this overwhelming feeling that the philosophy of this story was going to be something that didn t sit well with me However I slowly realized it was just a typical novel with no outstanding profundity whatsoeverOne of the reasons I despise contemporary literature and basically ceased reading it years ago is because contemporary writers almost always almost 100% of the time revert to the all essential shock value elements what I like to call the cheap grabber In the back cover of The Handmaids Tale it goes on to say Atwood takes many trends which exist today and stretches them to their logical and chillingblah blah blahhhhhh and let me just state that I noticed the review by Newsweek long after I had already started reading the book It was probably noticed during one of those moments of frustration where I single handedly flipped the book around wondering whatthefuckingfuckI ll give you a perfect example of how she used this trendI m reading about women in habits who seem to be pious and obedient living in the Republic of Gilead They walk with their heads bowed down two by two whispering words to each other such as blessed be may the Lord Open and I receive with joy And this goes on say for about 100 pages or so Then suddenly out of the blue you read He s fucking me Now it s not that I don t like the word fuck In fact I LOVE the word fuck Not as in I like to fuck but as in Fuck my food is burning or Fuck I got my period on the mattress again So it s not like I m a fuck prude cause I m not It s just that it didn t seem to fit in with the theme of the book and it was cheaply thrown in for shock value to keep up with the trend Now can anyone sit there and tell me Atwood couldn t have better and elouently described that scene Halfway through the book I stopped and assessed what I had gotten from it so far still nothingIt certainly had moments of intrigue I give it that much Of course it had to have had intrigue because it s a pretty popular book But Atwood s writing from the beginning is so flawed It s as if it went straight from her hands to publishing without being proof read or editedI m not a writer but I am a reader and I think I m certainly capable of recognizing whether a book flows or not and this book just doesn t flow at all And what pisses me off the very most is that Margaret Atwood is presently supposed to represent one of Canada s top leading modern authors Just because a book sells a lot doesn t mean suat It s just a trend a fad It s like when The Philadelphia Inuirer stated that PUSH a novel might find a place in the African American Literary canon I was like WHAT are you kidding me that shit no effin way no Look at The Davinchi Code Yes I enjoyed the novel a lot but I also recognize that Dan Brown probably won t be included as part of the American literary canon in 100 years eitherMargaret Atwood in my humble opinion is not the greatest of writers I ve seen reviewers on goodreads who are better at writing than she isThe only decent thing about this novel was the story line and even that seemed like Daniel Steel fluff Oh and the other thing that got me was that the entire female democracy has fallen apart and all Of Fred could think of was her need to have sexual intimacy with a man Not to mention that she never seemed appropriately upset about the fact that her husband and daughter have been taken from her Has Maragaret Atwood ever seen the Movie Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze The wolverines c mon manThe other major problem with this novel is that there were so many uestions unanswered What political reason behind the president day massacre Who were these people why were women targeted Why didn t women and their men fight back Those are uestions I m asking just to humor the book At this point the book was so leaky that It s not even worth asking uestions about because there aren t any answers I thought this book was going to have some psychological depth but to me it was just like reading a cheap novel I can go on and on about other things that make this not a great novel but it s not even worth itI m extremely disappointed I thought this was going to be

was both dreading and expecting to open the pages I wanted it to be over like I want a punishment to be over It made me choke I was uncomfortable and in pain the whole 312 pages However I was also in

mind races I think about the past of my country In the end of the novel at Historical Notes there were a few examples of other similar regimes that reacted as Gilead It said that Romania has anticipated Gilead in the eighties by banning all forms of birth control and imposing other restrictions How I wished this was also part of the author s imagination Ok there were no compulsory pregnancy tests and promotion did not depend on fertility but a decree was passed by Ceausescu our last communist president where all birth control and abortion was banned The punishment for not complying was severe women were imprisoned and beaten to confess During the 20 years when the decree was in place than 10000 women died from illegal mostly home made abortions Another world where men controlled women s body Not so long ago We cannot go back to that can we Motherhood Another hurtful subject To have your child taken away from you To be unable to have a child and have your husband conceive with someone else while you watch A nightmare for any woman or man No love no sex for pleasure No here I draw the line I cannot see this happen And still Historical NotesThe above memoir of a distressed reader that could not sleep because of the Handmaid s Tale was found in the notes of a mobile phone It is hard to identify the person that wrote the document as there were probably many people that lost sleep over this novel in Atwood s republic She tends to write some uncomfortable stuff that author We cannot confirm the authenticity of the document still the disturbed tone suggests that the person actually read the Handmaid s Tale and was deeply impressed by it And scaredPS I found in another review an interesting article wrote by Atwood where she discusses the book Sarah Keys

declining births Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable Offred can remember the years before when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she I ve been moved by books in the past many times but I ve never before read a book that has emotionally drained me to such a degree This is frightening and powerful And sometimes it only takes a single paragraph to make you realise how much so Yes Ma am I said again forgetting They used to have dolls for little girls that would talk if you pulled a string at the back I thought I was sounding like that voice of a monotone voice of a doll She probably longed to slap my face They can hit us there s Scriptural precedent But not with any implement Only with their hands Needless to say this is an absolutely awful situation From the very beginning I knew how much I was going to like this book Its story isn t one that it is simply read it demands to be heard It beckoned me to see the full force of the situation The Handmaids the average woman have no free will or individualism they are treated as simple baby producing machines An oppressive regime is forced upon them and to deviate from the said standard results in a slow and agonising death There s no hope or joy for them only perpetual subjugation Indeed this is where Atwood s awe inspiringly persuasive powers reside By portraying such a bleak situation she is able to fully demonstrate what life could be like if we suddenly followed the misogynistic views of the old testament with fierce intensity Women would have no power whatsoever This would be reinforced by a complete cultural destruction and lack of any form of self expression They would not be able to read or write they would not be able to speak their minds It would even go as far as to condition them so powerfully that they completely lack the ability of independent thought And to make it even worse the women know no difference Sure the narrator of this remembers her past but she s not allowed to She is forced to repress any sense of individual sentiment But who can remember pain once it s over All that remains of it is a shadow not in the mind even in the flesh Pain marks you but too deep to see Out of sight out of mind The narrator has a horrendous ordeal in an eually as horrendous world The notion was devised as a response against a drastic decrease in birth rates Men in power have taken complete control of women in both body and mind to insure an increase in the declining birth rates As I mentioned their individualism is repressed but the men also prevent any physical freedom The women are owned by the state by the men and by corruption their bodies are nothing than a means to provide new life In this they are degraded to a state of sub human existence they are no longer people Atwood suggests that they are merely a reproductive organ one that can be discarded without thought mercy or conscience This is reinforced on every level the language delivers this on a revealing scale The names are suggestive of the oppression the protagonist is called Offred She is of Fred she belongs to him The women are assigned names that are not their own they are dubbed with the disgusting title of Handmaiden By doing so they are left with very little of their former lives The women are simply objects to be used controlled and destroyed and the slightest hint of nonconformity to such an absurd system But here s the rub The best and most haunting thing about this novel is its scary plausibilityThe culture created is evocative of one that could actually exist The way the men attempt to justify its existence is nothing short of terrifying They make it sound perfectly normal Well not normal but an idea that could be justified to a people Not that it is justifiable but the argument they present has just enough eerie resemblance to a cold logical response to make it seem probable in its misguided vileness The totalitarian elements provide an image of a people that will do endure anything if they re provided with a glimpse of liberty The small degree of liberty the Handmaids think they have doesn t actually exist it s an illusion a trick a shadow on the wall They re manipulated into believing it and become frenzied in the face of it It is the ultimate means of control in its nastiness A rat in a maze is free to go anywhere as long as it stays inside the maze This book was horrifying and strangely perceptive If you re thinking about reading this stop thinking just read it It s brilliant It s a book I will definitely be reading again because it is just so thought provoking and disturbingYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree Swimming Pool Sunday that Scottish Exodus the Commander makes
