Last night HULU premiered Margret Atwood’s Handmaiden Tale, a dystopian novel written over 30 years ago, has people talking and thinking. People are saying that it struck hard and was a great portrayal of the book at first then veered, the producers did say that today’s world shaped their adaption of the novel. On dystopian books list, Handmaiden’s Tale is always in the top ten. HULU revealed the first three episodes of Handmaiden’s tale and this show has caused a stir. Here is snippet of the wiki- description of Handmaiden’s Tale The Handmaid's Tale - Wikipedia Handmaiden’s Tale set off twitter- many praising the show while saying it was scary, some relating it to our current administration and others wanting to once again bring race into things- As a lover of dystopian novels, Handmaiden’s Tale has been on my to-be-read list for a few years. Maybe the release of this new TV series will finally inspire me to read the novel. One of the reasons that I failed to read the novel is because it always sounded so dark. Dystopic fiction is not usually light reading because with many novels I end up thinking, this could happen. My son just read the book in high school and I have a feeling he did not grasp the true message. I know that some schools have banned the novel. Has anyone read Handmaiden's Tale or did anyone watch the premier last night?
