“I love the message, I don’t think it’s some sort of “feminist propaganda” (eyeroll) but I couldn’t get over the writing. The metaphors and similes seemed overdone, to the point where she’d be describing a staircase and by the end of the sentence I had to reread it to remember what she was talking about in the first place. I can get over a few examples of that, but it seemed like the entire book was one long sentence with too many commas and muddy comparisons. It reminded me of trying to fill a word count for a school assignment.“

“Eerily voyeuristic 1980’s sci-fi masterpiece that reflects incredible insight into our society today in 2018, especially the male chauvinistic, white supremacist political precipice from which we hang in terror, right now...“

“It's amazing that I even need to point this out. And now it's being pushed to an extreme extent in the series. This is creating a war between men and women that is extremely dangerous. Third wave feminism is a cancer to society. Pleas do not support these dangerous ideas with a purchase.“

“I enjoyed the story overall but I’m confused about the ending“

“After all the hype over the TV show, which I waited to watch until finishing the book, I was so expectant when I purchased this book. However, if turned out to be my most disappointing read of 2018. I muddled through, thinking the pace HAD to pick up and the storyline MUST move along eventually. Finally, it did start to get just a bit interesting... and then it ended. Just like that. No resolution or feeling of, “Wow. That was with my time to read.” It was just over, mid-climax build. I rarely advocate watching the show/film when the book is available, but this time I advise you to save your time. Those are monotonous hours I can’t get back. Most of the book’s action can be watched on Episode 1 of Season 1 of the series.“

“Read it after watching the Hulu series. Enjoyed it.“

“Terrible book! I remember Slavery...“
