The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

"Is The Handmaid’s Tale a prediction? ...  No, it isn’t a prediction, because predicting the future isn’t really possible: There are too many variables and unforeseen possibilities. Let’s say it’s an antiprediction: If this future can be described in detail, maybe it won’t happen. But such wishful thinking cannot be depended on either."--Margaret Atwood. New York Times Book Review. March 10, 2017

"This novel sets out a terrifying dystopian future that at times is all too reminiscent of aspects of current society. Details of the past are revealed concurrently with present events, creating an intriguing narrative of how the Republic of Gilead came to be. A powerful, albeit at times disturbing, book." --Rachael
