The Handmaid’s Tale—Atwood—recommended reading

…watched adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale on Channel 4 on Sunday night.  Oh—I was going to say that I was going to blog that and recommend the book for reading—and then I thought I wouldn’t—but I’ve just quickly looked on the net to see if that The was there in the title—and glimpsed favourable reviews and something about it being able to tell us something about Islamic extremism.

I read the book years ago, and saw it as a re-take on Christian practices of the Old Testament.

And so—I will put this here—it signals to people where I am.

I would recommend that everyone reads this book.
