The Handmaid's Tale
Margaret Atwood

I was not really all that happy with the ending of my book. Dystopian novels tend to have terrible endings and this one was no different. The entire book felt like it was just describing the world Offred lives in. Things only really start happening towards the end. It seems like the actual story was only just getting started when the book ended. It also ended kind of on a cliffhanger. We never really know if the van was Mayday or the Guardians. We also never really know if she made it to Canada or beyond. The epilogue kind of implies that she might have, but we can't be sure. I wish she would've written a sequel or something to tell us what happened to her.

  1. Do you think there will be a sequel or was this for sure the last book? Also you said this book was a dystopia, how so?
