The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood

Well after The Year of the Flood I said I'd read this one and then take a break from Atwood.  After reading The Handmaid's Tale I may never read another Atwood again.  That's not a knock on this book, the opposite in fact.  I loved it, one of the best books I've ever read.  I'm embarrassed I waited this long to read it.

But I don't think any other Atwood book is going to live up to this, not if the other two I've read are any indication.  While I liked the other books, and will probably like most of Atwood's books, Handmaid's Tale is something special.
