Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
Handmaid's Tale

Jeanne, October 18, 2007

Although this book was written in 1985, it is relevant to trends in the country that combine politics with sex, reproduction and women's individual rights of choice . A frightening satire , Margaret Atwood warns about these directions. I read this book when it was first published. As a reread it recently I was impressed with its warnings about the current directions governments worldwide are taking. I encourage first time readers to get this book as well those who appreciated Atwood' thoughts the first time .

Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult
Vanishing Acts

Jeanne, September 2, 2006

Jodi Picoult writes about perspectives, culture, relationships in a fully absorbing story. Once I started this book, I had to keep reading to see what happens next. Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of the Deep End of the Ocean says it best "the author wraps the reader tighter than a spider's silk in the inticracies of the story. Never more gripping is the master plotter than in this, the story of Delia Hopkins." You cannot put it down once you start it.
