The Best Instagram Snaps of Margaret Atwood’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’

I have a confession to make: I’ve never read Margaret Atwood‘s The Handmaid’s Tale. *Gasp* I know, I know! The thing is, though, it was never required reading when I was in high school or in my undergrad. Okay, one more confession: I own not one but two copies of the book, and they’ve been sitting on my shelf for over two years now. In spite of your pitchfork-ready protests, I’ve feigned interest in reading classics; honestly, I am not a fan. (Yeah, I was one of those English majors.) But for now, I might just bask in the shuddering glory that is Hulu‘s recent revitalization of Atwood’s alarming tale, which premieres today (April 26). Will you?

About The Handmaid’s Tale:

Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she lived and made love with her husband, Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now…

In honor of Margaret Atwood The Handmaid’s Tale, here are just a few of the coolest Instasnaps we’ve seen!

Damızlık Kızın Öyküsü ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ -26 Nisan'da dizisi de geliyor kitabın.- Ütopyalar ve distopyalar arasında benim için keskin bir fark var: Ütopyalardaki yüksek erdem, ahlak ve disiplinin homo sapiens tarafından uygulanamayacak denli imkansız; ama distopyalar o kadar gerçeğe yakın ki… Damızlık Kızın Öyküsü olağanüstü hal altında yaşadığımız bu dönemde, üstüne de enteresan bir referandumla taçlandırılmış bir okuma deneyimi oldu bana; sanırım tam da bunlar yüzünden kemiklerimde hissettim keskinliğini. İktidarda yalnızca erkeklerin söz sahibi olduğu, taşıyıcı anneliğin asi olmayan doğurgan kadınlar için zorunlu hale getirildiği, doğurgan olmayanların sürgün edildiği, asilerin kesinlikle idam edildiği gelecekten seslenen bir kurgu ülke Gilead. Karanlık bir hikaye ancak arka kapakta da belirtildigi üzere: Anlatılan bizim hikayemiz(dir)! *BURADAN SONRASI SPOILER ICEREBILIR* Son bölümde hikayenin daha uzak bir gelecekte antpologlarca işleniyormuşcasına bize notlar sunmasını ekstra sevdim. . . . #damızlıkkızınöyküsü #damizlikkizinoykusu #thehandmaidstale #gilead #margaretatwood #doğankitap #offred #bookstagram #instabook #bookworm #kitapkurdu #okudukcabuyurinsan #vscobook #vscocam #vsco #bookphotography #kitaplariyikivar #dogankitap #buchlesen #bücherliebe #kitapyorumu

"Nolite te bastardes carborundorum. Don't let the bastards grind you down.". . Happy #SockSunday everyone! I'm SO excited to finally be able to cross The Handmaid's Tale off my TBR list! It's been on there for aaaaages and every time someone asks if I've ever read it, I'm like, "Nooo but I'm getting on it, I swear!" *repeat for ten years*. . But ha! I've read it! And I'm happy to say it didn't disappoint, especially since I'm not a big dystopian reader. It did leave me a bit unsatisfied, however not in a bad way. There's also something about Margaret Atwood's writing that just drew me in. I wanted/needed to know what happened in the end! She has a way of keeping your attention, even if you weren't interested within the first few pages. You got me, Atwood! And of course, this book was banned in several school districts across the States because of its explicit sexual content, satirical religious views, defamatory statements, etc. It's also one of the most banned/challenged books in the last 30 years 😥 Keep em' busy, Margaret!. . Have you read it? What did you think? And has anyone seen the new Hulu show?. . — #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookaddict #bookworm #booklove #booklover #bookish #booknerdigans #booknerd #books #bookcommunity #bookdragon #bookporn #bibliofeed #bibliophile #goodreads #readingislife #readingissexy #vscobooks #dystopian #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood #bookswornwell
