This is a glimpse at the land beyond the Blue Mountains to the west.
A book I have read recently
I watched series 1 of the TV series of The Handmaid's Tale with dismay, all the while hoping that Offred would manage an escape to the land beyond Gilead. The TV series is based the dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale by Canadian author Margaret Atwood.
When there was a series 2 of the TV series I started to watch hoping for a good outcome but it was soon clear that Offred was ending up in the clutches of Aunt Lydia again! I couldn't bear to watch any more. With series 3 released I had a niggling question, where did the story as written end?
So I read the book which was a pleasure and while the conclusion was open I found it more satisfying then more hours of nail biting TV.
