I've rewritten large parts of it for clarity. The main idea remains the same. Extremist Judeo-Christian beliefs have won America's culture war. Now women have no rights.
All about getting it out there — in words Book Review: From a literary point of view, the style, language, content, characterisation and themes are pretty faultless.
No wonder she is the doyenne of quality fictional writing currently. But it is precisely because of that accolade and others like it that forces me to drop the rating for this novel.
What do we come away with learning about the human condition from this book? Not a lot really. Atwood gives too much time to an undisguised attack on religion at a surface level and fails to dig deeper into more compelling philosophies underlying the reasons for what takes place as a result.
Whereas Orwell and Huxley send us away musing over the human condition, Atwood fails to give us anything at all. Atwood gives us mere glimpses into relatively two-dimensional characters which cannot hope to develop the same kind of thinking. But as a story?
Pretty darned good — definitely ticks all the boxes. The epilogue was, perhaps, a little twee and heavy-handed, but otherwise the plot worked, was believable and was as a good a romp through a dystopian future as any. Certainly, there are worse ways to spend your time. If you want to be touched and roused to philosophical musings — stick with the past masters.
But if a tangible near-future hell is your kind of thing — look no further.
