Before talking about the actual text Gaby and Adam discuss The Handmaid’s Tale and Margaret Atwood in general. This is the first sci-fi book they have read for the series, which Adam is excited about, but Gaby not so much. By this time next week, we will see if they both feel the same way about the book.
The story itself is about a group of women who are being held captive for what seems to be reproductive purposes. Every moment of their lives are planned out and they are forced to adhere to very demanding social rules. Religion is a large part of the book because it is used a s justification for how they are being treated. For more information check out the podcast and tune in next week!
