I thought this was a good read. I listened to the audio by Claire Danes. It’s obviously depressing, and sometimes it is description heavy in a way that can be a bit tedious. Also, the ending is ambiguous. However, that didn’t bother me, so much as it just took me by surprise, initially.
Overall, I enjoyed this book, and I think I’ll try some others by Margaret Atwood. Also, I started the TV series on Hulu. It’s good so far, though I don’t always feel they do a good job of pairing the soundtrack to the emotion of the scenes.
