Better than the handmaiden's tale,
This review is from: Wither (The Chemical Garden, Book 1) (Chemical Garden 1) (Paperback)
There seems to be a lot of books out at the moment that deal with futuristic worlds in which women can't conceive or certain women are only used for the job. All of them I cannot help but compare to the Handmaiden's tale which is considered to be a classic.
I have to say though, I didn't like the handmaiden's tale and I thought this book had everything that the classic didn't offer.
I cared about the characters, I felt the suspense, the injustice and was happily sucked into this world.
I'm really looking forward to the sequel as this is the first book in a while that I didn't want to put down.
Definately worth a read if you love the distopian genre or are just getting in to it.
