Reviews of The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
1. Rating 4/5
The Handmaid’s Tale depicts an unnerving however genuine and conceivable oppressed world. From the outset, it’s hard to determine what precisely is going on in the handmaid’s reality, in spite of the fact that her extra portrayal is loaded up with a profound feeling of dread and risk. It’s difficult however energizing to attempt to comprehend all the terrifying subtleties that she depicts, and that is something that made this such a convincing read for me- – I was frantic to make sense of what was occurring just as how and why things had turned out badly. The story advances wonderfully, as the subtleties of the present disentangle simultaneously and with a similar earnestness as the occasions of the past, following an alarmingly reasonable way from our reality to hers.
One thing that I truly enjoyed about the improvement of the story: as the conditions of the handmaid’s life and environment become more clear and progressively abusive, she really appears to increase some little proportion of expectation. There’s an always raising differentiation between the forces undermining her and the becoming stronger of her voice.
2. Rating 4.3/5
We had this French live in housekeeper called Emilie, and she was composing a Masters proposition on The Handmaid’s Tale. She discussed it perpetually. It was Handmaid’s Tale this and Margaret Atwood that throughout the day. I’d never perused it, however following a little while I went out and purchased a duplicate. I assumed that in any event, I’d have all the more intriguing discussions with her.
So I read it, and I thought it was OK. There was this scene that included a few tulips, and I disclosed to Emilie that I thought they rather helped me to remember the Sylvia Plath sonnet. I was simply attempting to be useful – individuals frequently like that sort of thing in an exposition. She read the ballad and asked me for what reason I’d made the affiliation.
“Well,” I stated, “I get it’s mostly in light of the fact that Sylvia Plath’s inclination discouraged and self-destructive, and Offred is as well.”
Emilie appeared to be shocked. She hadn’t got that impression of Offred by any means. I surrendered. We obviously wouldn’t have been having any abstract discussions.
Inside this book
We slept in what had once been the gymnasium. The floor was of varnished wood, with stripes and circles painted on it, for the games that were formerly played there; the hoops for the basketball nets were still in place, though the nets were gone. A balcony ran around the room, for the spectators, and I thought I could smell, faintly like an afterimage, the pungent scent of sweat, shot through with the sweet taint of chewing gum and perfume from the watching girls, felt-skirted as I knew from pictures, later in mini-skirts, then pants, then in one earring, spiky green-streaked hair. Dances would have been held there; the music lingered, a palimpsest of unheard sound, style upon style, an undercurrent of drums, a forlorn wail, garlands made of tissue-paper flowers, cardboard devils, a revolving ball of mirrors, powdering the dancers with a snow of light.
There was old sex in the room and loneliness, and expectation, of something without a shape or name. I remember that yearning, for something that was always about to happen and was never the same as the hands that were on us there and then, in the small of the back, or outback, in the parking lot, or in the television room with the sound turned down and only the pictures flickering over lifting flesh.
