Book ReviewThe Handmaid's Tale is a dystopian science fiction set in a totalitarian future. Offred, the main character, is a handmaid, whose sole purpose is to reproduce.  Although written in 1985, the book has undeniable parallels to events happening in the world today. This book serves as a cautionary tale of how the future might be if society continues to stay apathetic, but I find Atwood's portrayal of the future to be exaggerated and a bit implausible.
