The Handmaid’s Tale

I read The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Attwood a number of years ago. I have read most of her books and they are absolutely fantastic tales. I am currently watching the TV adaptation which is being shown on Channel 4 in the UK. It is a fantastic adaptation and is quietly horrifying. It portrays a society where the government has been overthrown and fertile women are chosen to become reproductive ‘vessels’ for women unable to have children. They become prisoners and are raped by their new ‘masters’ while being held down by their master’s wives. It tells the tale of Offred who is played brilliantly by Elisabeth Moss. It is well worth watching on catch up. 

I think I’m going to re-read Margaret Attwoods’s novels. I recommend them all.


GOT and the coast

Wee scoot up the coast with a friend tonight. Ended up in Ballintoy Harbour for a chat and a cuppa. Had the chat but the cafe was just closing up but what a lovely spot. Game of Thrones fans might recognize it.

I’m not a fan but it does feature because there’s an information board that says so lol
