    I just reviewed Margaret Atwood's original story so I won't re discuss plot and themes I have seen some of the fine Hulu series so was interested to see that Renée Nault had adapted and illustrated Atwood's story as a graphic novel The artwork here is gorgeous creating a somewhat different effect than the film adaptation emphasizing on almost every page the rich deep red of the handmaidens etching that color forever in your mind and meaning of the red changes over the course of the book It's a faithful adaptation true to the horror and the steadily growing sense of resistance and a looming rebellion of May Day I strongly recommend you check it out A fine and worthy companion to the original It captures the sense of the narrative in case you just want to know the story and don't really intend to read Atwood's original but I suggest you read both of course

    Because this is a graphic novel adaptation of a very well known and widely read book I feel like this review shouldn't focus on the plot or characters or the world that's been built; it should instead focus on whether Renee Nault has done an effective job of adapting it all into comic form In my estimation she has the art is wonderful very appropriate and affecting and while it couldn't have been easy to cut this story down in a way that makes sense she's done it It's been a long time since I read The Handmaid's Tale and I couldn't tell you what Nault has cut but I can say that what she's left in works very wellAlso It's still a great story When I read Atwood's novel I was nineteen and was just beginning to educate myself on politics and social issues so I don't think I grasped it all as well as I did this time around The parallels to our current culture are evident and the portrayals of how humans react to governmental overrreach feel familiar Like I said great story Great terrifying story

    While in Barnes Noble recently picking up a couple classic graphic novels on my to own list the bookseller says up front we also have THE HANDMAIDS TALE graphic novel I said thanks but the novel wasn't a favorite of mine She said hers either she doesn't like dystopian stories and of course I said I loved them but not that particular one She said the book is beautifully done thoughand that it is I walked out with it So here I am done reading the story for a second time and loving it and the beautifully illustrated graphics of this horrific dystopian world for women The fertile women are objects used primarily as a container for procreation a natural resource of the time in the terrifying Republic of Gilead and THE HANDMAIDS TALE is primarily Offred's oppressive story of loss loneliness grief and the forbidden touch of love NO talkingNO employmentNO readingNO friendships The handmaid's cannot even look at each other and sneaking around is dangerous and detrimental to your health The aunts are always watching as are the wives and punishments are brutalto those unessential parts of the body that don't affect their purpose in life And even worsethere's the ominous hanging wall visible to all who pass Note Illustrations in this graphic novel are colorful and vividly expressive of bringing to life this unsettling dystopian world Have not yet watched the Netflix movie but can't wait to see if it ends like the book for Offred view spoilerhopeful with a possible way out and a chance to find her daughter hide spoiler

    4 stars The Handmaid’s Tale was a book I read when I was in high school and it’s a book I love very dearly When this graphic novel came out I was skeptical but I saw lots of positive reviews and gave it a shot I won’t rehash the plot because there’s the book and the show But what this novel added was fresh color and almost an abbreviated version of the book I thought the art was beautiful and it was a uick read

    Stunning imagery It's amazing how her vision matches how I pictured the setting to be in my own mind almost exactly

    Praise be The classic Margaret Atwood cautionary tale has finally been adapted as a graphic novel and it is perfection The spare art style emphasizes color especially red and blue and the facial expressions convey much even when words aren't possible I really can't say enough about the illustrations they evoke even haunting chilling doom than words alone can achieveI received an advance copy from the publisher via Netgalley for review consideration
