Margaret Atwood Ë 3 review read â eBook or Kindle ePUB Ë Margaret Atwood The Handmaid's Tale review Ù 103 Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read She must lie on her back once a mon. I guess Atwood doesn t believe in uotation marks I don t think I ve ever come across a novel yet in which there is no distinction between the narrator and the character It took me uite a while to get used to that type of style of writing I had to go back and re read sentences again and again which doesn t really lend itself to a relaxing reading experience and it slowed me down uite a bitFirst 100 pagesReally annoyingwhy well because I felt like a juicy bone was being waved in front of my face Like when someone asks you guess which celebrity died today and you ask who and they say well why don t you guess and you answer I don t know I give up just tell me and this keeps going back and forth back and forth and finally you just want to say forget it it s not even worth it and walk away That s how I felt reading this book Kinda like Atwood was being childish about withholding the plot information because it gave her literary power and control over the reader and keeps them hostageThen I couldn t ignore this overwhelming feeling that the philosophy of this story was going to be something that didn t sit well with me However I slowly realized it was just a typical novel with no outstanding profundity whatsoeverOne of the reasons I despise contemporary literature and basically ceased reading it years ago is because contemporary writers almost always almost 100% of the time revert to the all essential shock value elements what I like to call the cheap grabber In the back cover of The Handmaids Tale it goes on to say Atwood takes many trends which exist today and stretches them to their logical and chillingblah blah blahhhhhh and let me just state that I noticed the review by Newsweek long after I had already started reading the book It was probably noticed during one of those moments of frustration where I single handedly flipped the book around wondering whatthefuckingfuckI ll give you a perfect example of how she used this trendI m reading about women in habits who seem to be pious and obedient living in the Republic of Gilead They walk with their heads bowed down two by two whispering words to each other such as blessed be may the Lord Open and I receive with joy And this goes on say for about 100 pages or so Then suddenly out of the blue you read He s fucking me Now it s not that I don t like the word fuck In fact I LOVE the word fuck Not as in I like to fuck but as in Fuck my food is burning or Fuck I got my period on the mattress again So it s not like I m a fuck prude cause I m not It s just that it didn t seem to fit in with the theme of the book and it was cheaply thrown in for shock value to keep up with the trend Now can anyone sit there and tell me Atwood couldn t have better and elouently described that scene Halfway through the book I stopped and assessed what I had gotten from it so far still nothingIt certainly had moments of intrigue I give it that much Of course it had to have had intrigue because it s a pretty popular book But Atwood s writing from the beginning is so flawed It s as if it went straight from her hands to publishing without being proof read or editedI m not a writer but I am a reader and I think I m certainly capable of recognizing whether a book flows or not and this book just doesn t flow at all And what pisses me off the very most is that Margaret Atwood is presently supposed to represent one of Canada s top leading modern authors Just because a book sells a lot doesn t mean suat It s just a trend a fad It s like when The Philadelphia Inuirer stated that PUSH a novel might find a place in the African American Literary canon I was like WHAT are you kidding me that shit no effin way no Look at The Davinchi Code Yes I enjoyed the novel a lot but I also recognize that Dan Brown probably won t be included as part of the American literary canon in 100 years eitherMargaret Atwood in my humble opinion is not the greatest of writers I ve seen reviewers on goodreads who are better at writing than she isThe only decent thing about this novel was the story line and even that seemed like Daniel Steel fluff Oh and the other thing that got me was that the entire female democracy has fallen apart and all Of Fred could think of was her need to have sexual intimacy with a man Not to mention that she never seemed appropriately upset about the fact that her husband and daughter have been taken from her Has Maragaret Atwood ever seen the Movie Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze The wolverines c mon manThe other major problem with this novel is that there were so many uestions unanswered What political reason behind the president day massacre Who were these people why were women targeted Why didn t women and their men fight back Those are uestions I m asking just to humor the book At this point the book was so leaky that It s not even worth asking uestions about because there aren t any answers I thought this book was going to have some psychological depth but to me it was just like reading a cheap novel I can go on and on about other things that make this not a great novel but it s not even worth itI m extremely disappointed I thought this was going to be
