3.0 The Handmaids Tale
by Margaret Atwood My first impression of this book was that it reminded me of Anne Frank's diary, writing in journal form about an oppressive situation in which the person writing must survive.

5.0 Gilead
Well, that was as soul-drenching as any double bill ever was (even though The Testaments is marginally more optimistic than The Handmaid's Tale). It's not always a good idea for an author to revisit one of their standout classics decades later, but in this instance it clearly worked. Atwood stay...
