Nolite te bastardes carborundorum! We discuss The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood and notable differences from the award-winning show from Hulu, including: characterizations of Offred/June, Moira, Nick, and Ofglen/Emily; unreliable narration in the novel; use of foreshadowing in the show; barbarism with modern elements; twisting of bible passages; the book vs. show ending; and our predictions for season two. Plus, how amazing Margaret Atwood is and our favorite quotes.
