Unexpectedly transgressive. Not something I necessarily like or dislike in a story but it was certainly very fitting in Atwood’s very dystopic world.
This book was good but didn’t resonate with me in any profound way. I was distracted by some dated elements like the CD ROMs and by a few tropes that I wish hadn’t been there. (The evil/mad scientist thing annoys me.)
The world is so detailed and yet leaves you wondering about so much that I want to pick up the next book in the trilogy. But will it also leave me hanging. I’m betting on the answer to that being yes.
