The Handmaid´s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Oof.  What a thorough and thought provoking book. I absolutely loved the writting, typical Atwood really and the pace at which the story unfolded. I enjoyed how it took the idea of woman as a vesel for breeding and the much argued sanctity of life from the conservative end of the spectrum and flipped it on its head.

The day I finished reading the book we watched Children of Men which explores similar themes but from a slightly different angle. Loved it
