I’ve been lax on writing this review. I’m not big into writing out reviews. We don’t all see the same or have the same opinions. This is very apparent with the political turmoil we have been entrenched in since November last year (if not longer.) Perhaps it’s more apparent to me now that I’m older and more “wise.”
I don’t typically delve into these sort of topics as finding common ground seems harder and harder. Few sides give and most of us don’t have the energy to spend our time arguing. But can I just say that the Handmaid’s Tale was a poignant and terrifying insight on how the world could be.
Written in 1985 and turned into a tv show in 2017, it is a message that resonates with many areas of people. There is no denying the gap between races, genders and social classes. If you are claiming we are all equal you are living in a very deluded world. The world is not equal. As much as we strive for equality, it is honestly something we may never achieve. Not because we aren’t trying but simply because we are human.
I’m not going to go too deep into this review but I am going to urge you to watch the show. Pick up the book. It is worth the read. It isn’t a fun, light read. It isn’t a happy go lucky show. But it is worth it. And after that, you can go ahead and pick up a sappy love book. Binge The Office for the 45th time.
Now before I go on a political rant and piss someone off (I would) I’m going to leave you with a picture of Zoey.
And don’t forget- we are the new generation. We are the ones who are responsible for where the future is going.
