I’m currently watching and cringing at The Handmaid’s Tale – anyone else finding it really difficult to watch?   Anyways, I’ve struggled in the past with other Atwood novels, but decided to give this one a go.  I was okay with the first third of the book until magical realism took hold (not a great fan!). I probably will read the rest of the triology at some point, but won’t rush (especially seeing the size of the next one in the series).
