Book Club: The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

The Handmaid's Tale book by Margaret Atwood

Henpicked’s book of the month for June 2017…

The Handmaid's Tale book by Margaret AtwoodWell we enjoyed Lie With Me by Sabine Durrant, and we’d recommend the book, perhaps more as a holiday read! Please check out the reviews.

A huge thank you to our book champions and to the Henpicked community for their comments and reviews. If you have any further thoughts please drop them into Disqus at the bottom of the article.

We’re really excited to announce that The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood is our book of the month for June. Thanks for all your suggestions and this one is a little different. It’s a contemporary classic, highly rated and a great film and series (read the book first though!):

“Compulsively readable” Daily Telegraph

“Out of a narrative shadowed by terror, gleam sharp perceptions, brilliant intense images and sardonic wit” Independent

“The images of brilliant emptiness are one of the most striking aspects of this novel about totalitarian blindness…the effect is chilling” Sunday Times

We’re looking for 10 book champions so if you would like to volunteer, please let us know. We give each of our champions a FREE copy of the book of the month in return for hearing what they think of it.

Just like last month, we’ll let our book club subscribers have some key points about the book to think about throughout the month and in the meantime, please do get reading!

Feel free to jump into the discussion about the book at any time during the month using Disqus which is ready and waiting for you and shows up at the bottom of this page – it’s free to sign up and once you are logged in, you can comment on any of the articles on the Henpicked website.
