I enjoyed this re-read from 2014. My darling wife also read it and wanted to discuss fine points as I went along. It is a book which does not disappoint.
Highly Recommended

Following after The Handmaid's Tale, this novel reveals what happened after that story ends. It does so in documents revealed by later researchers who are studying the history of Gilead. I felt vaguely disengaged and I think the writing strategy as historical documents played a part. Of course, it has been many years since I enjoyed The Handmaid's Tale which I remember enjoying very much.
Mildly Recommended.
