WINNER UPDATE: Congrats to Diana Castro & Heidi Klein who WON the copies of The Handmade's Tale! Thanks to everyone who participated! Stay tuned - I'll be doing more giveaways of my favorite books...(including soon my book when it's published)
The guy and I recently started watching The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu. Terrifying. Fascinating. Makes me shiver. All of that. Love it. I watch and screech when something happens on the show that was similar to the program I was in (a Christian "reform your kid" cult/bootcamp), such as:
- The way communication was regulated, forbidden
- Being watched all the time
- The hunger people have for authority and little bits of power; the rank of human beings
- The turning of people against each other so they nark and become spies for the authorities
- The group punishments for one person's misdeed; putting the pain on all
- The struggle to hold onto your identity and remember your real life
- The realization that the phrase "hope dies last" is not true--you can lost hope and be forced to live in the torture of your reality
The show inspired me to finally buy and read the book by the woman who started it all, Margaret Atwood. I'm only a few chapters in, but I'm completely taken by it. So...I purchased some extra copies so you can enjoy it too!
