The ex factor...
The Handmaid's Tale
I was introduced to it by my (now ex) wife who liked Attwood generally. After reading overwhelmingly male books like 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World and A Clockwork Orange it was refreshing to get a different take on what would be important and what would constitute a dystopia.
Tried watching the film adaptation too, but found that quite a dismal watch. It's a shame Attwood denies that she writes science-fiction.
