The Handmaid's Tale (Everyman's Library)

The Handmaid's Tale - Valerie Martin, Margaret Atwood This book still haunts me after all these years. I read it in my early 20 and it made quite an impact on what kind of speculative fiction I liked : disturbing, scary in the best possible way and makes you think. Handmaid's Tale has all three of these. I've never reread this one. Probably won't again mainly because somehow I can see glimpses, sometimes it's more in your face shouts of this society where women are propriety in our reality and it scares me. A lot.
