Oh my god! This was the completely unnecessary, yet hedonistically wonderful sequel to Handmaid’s Tale. The world could have done without this book, and I understand why some people reviewed it as such, but for me, it was a fun way to tie up loose ends and delve deeper into the world, and then to witness its undoing. Since Handmaid’s Tale ends in the future with a anthropological look at the world of Gilead, it makes sense that we would now get to see how that world dissolved.
I really enjoyed this book, and would recommend to anyone who does not take their 35-year-later sequels too seriously.
