If I’m being sincere, aside from the Handmaid’s Story, I discover Attwood’s books troublesome to learn rapidly. I really feel like the subject material signifies that they will’t be devoured like different books. This isn’t even essentially a foul factor, I simply personally like a ebook that I can sit down and skim 200 pages at a time! The story of this ebook, like all of Attwood’s, was so attention-grabbing. The ebook primarily contained a social experiment. For somebody who has no residence, this experiment appears perfect. Though it’s important to spend each second month in jail, it appears value it you probably have a house for the opposite month. Nonetheless, nothing is ever as perfect as it’s introduced. My problem was that I didn’t essentially join with the characters, I didn’t know sufficient about them. I additionally discovered it a bit complicated once they had been discussing sure plans all through the ebook. I learn fairly quick and I believe I used to be simply lacking sure issues. Nonetheless, the story was so attention-grabbing and I’d positively suggest it.
