This novel has been described as "a women's 1984." As with Orwell's futuristic thriller, The Handmaid's Tale is well-written, politically astute, and contains enough reality mixed in with the fantastic to compel and horrify. Although the novel has a feminist perspective, it addresses the universal issues of individual autonomy and freedom.
