The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Handmaid's Tale

A lady's life in the Republic of Gilead.

My favorite Margaret Atwood quote from the book:

"You can think clearly only with your clothes on."

Questions to ponder while reading the book.

Would you have submitted?

Is name elimination enough to destroy identity?

My review of The Handmaid's Tale.

Women need to be more supportive of each other.

An uneducated population will destroy society.

Religion isn't always the right answer.

*Regularly challenged, be a rebel and read it*
