This book is so chilling because it carries a sense of what might be. The great Margaret Atwood. She is so funny/witty and intelligent. She is also generous and helps young writers and gives to causes she never brags about.. She is an avid enviromentalist(loves birds) and she is a hero for playing a key role in bringing Canadian literature to its rightful place in the world. All her books are worth reading.

The Handmaid's Tale (1985) is a dystopian novel, a work of speculative fiction, by Canadian author Margaret Atwood and first published by McClelland and Stewart in 1985.
"The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood, 1985. One of the first works of fiction I read that spoke to my feminist sensibilities and the fears of what choices women could lose about their own bodies. It was also one of the few books I felt was successfully adapted as a film.
The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood; One of the greatest writers of ALL TIME; dystopian fiction; a modern classic IMO anyway
The Handmaid's Tale — Margaret Atwood In the spirit of 1984‚ I tried to get into this novel, but found it all too preposterous. Quick read, some interesting observations, but otherwise absurd.
"The Handmaid's Tale is a dystopian novel, a work of science fiction or speculative fiction, written by Canadian author Margaret Atwood and first published by McClelland and Stewart in 1985. Set in the near future, in a totalitarian Christian theocracy which has overthrown the United States government, The Handmaid's Tale explores themes of women in subjugation and the various means by which they gain agency.

I've always believed in writing without a collaborator, because where two people are writing the same book, each believes he gets all the worries and only half the royalties. Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie. My favorite author. She wrote amazing, quintessentially British mysteries and created the characters of Hercule Poirot, Jane Marple, Mr. Parker Pyne, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, and Mr. Satterthwaite and Mr. Harley Quinn.

In writing her first novel, Agatha Christie looked around for inspiration for her characters. She initially started to base her murderer on an acquaintance who lived nearby, but even though she considered it at some length, she could not see the man in question ever murdering anyone. Agatha therefore decided once and for all not to use real people as inspiration, and that she must create her characters for herself. She started looking out for people in trams, trains...
Real Life Gone Girl? Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, DBE (née Miller; 15 September 1890 – 12 January 1976). She also wrote 6 romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but she is best known for the 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections she wrote under her own name, most of which revolve around the investigations of such characters as Hercule Poirot, Jane Marple, Parker Pyne and Tommy and Tuppence Beresford. She wrote the world's longest-running play, The Mousetrap.

This is William Shakespeare. He was a famous writer of poems and plays. His works are still admired to this day. He was a major person in the European Renaissance. Some of the things he wrote were Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and MacBeth.
Everything Shakespeare wrote is sooooo worth reading. His words just take my breath away! Guess that's the English teacher in me :o)
"Do not, for one repulse, give up the purpose that you resolved to effect. " - William Shakespeare #quote
William Shakespeare- A worth mentioning contributor to the wonderful world of theatre. His works are as Duke Orsino says in Twelfth night, "highly fantastical."

His extant works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, the authorship of some of which is uncertain.
William Shakespeare ( Stratford-upon-Avon , April 23 of 1564 - Stratford-upon-Avon , April 23 of 1616 ) was a poet and playwright English ,he is often called the national poet of England and the " Bard of Avon ".

The Penelopiad - Margaret Atwood - I've just reread this book (I'm unsure how many times I've read it but it's THAT GOOD). And thinking about a stage adaptation...(which I now see has been done before but that just means it's a good idea).
The Penelopiad (Margaret Atwood) - I enjoyed this book, though it suffers by comparison to other Margaret Atwood novels. Nonetheless, it has interesting things to say about the responsibility we share for the sufferings of the powerless around us. They do trail us like ghosts.

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood, 2003. A dystopian novel that plays a little more on conspiracy and bioengineering than social experiment. If you liked this, read the follow-up, The Year of the Flood.
Oryx and Crake and Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood (2003 and 2009): Set in a future where genetic engineering is commonplace, and the super rich extend their lives with spa treatments, the two novels show us how a horrific, humanity-destroying plague affects both the rich as well as a commune of radical environmentalists."
