While this was a very easy read it was also incredibly underwhelming. I enjoyed reading "The Handmaid's Tale" and I love the TV series. I was hoping this story would bring more to the story arc of Gilead but it felt like an unnecessary addition. This was a very poorly written book and I expected more from Atwood. I feel like this book was written just so she could take back the narrative of the story from where the TV show was going. I'm super disappointed that this won the 2019 Booker Prize. In no way was this an award winning novel.
