Dear Ms. Atwood, I know it takes longer to write a book than it does to read one. This fact does not make the wait for book three any easier. In support of our mutual well being, I am sending you positive energy and long-distance hugs to facilitate the writing process. Your friend, Ashley
The first installment in Atwood’s beloved trilogy, set in a near-future that seems all too possible. The prose is snappy, light, and funny, perfect for hammock-reading, but the ideas are large and looming, so you won’t feel you’ve wasted your time.
