Taking a Humorous Review Break: The Handmaiden's Tale and 1984

I'm sure you just went... "What? Humorous?" and then started making plans for my padded room. Na, just more Thug Notes (yes you might get sick of me posting these, but I like them). These are humorous AND very informative. I love his analysis. I thought I'd take 2 books which have reemerged in the best seller lists. You can see why they are popular now.

The Handmaiden's Tale:

1984

Yea, so it might be cheating a bit letting someone else review these, but they are pretty good book reviews!

Enjoy!

  2. "We're trying to stick it to them Gilead haters!" LoL This is hilarious! Not a book I'd read but I'd happily watch his book review/summaries.

  3. These are priceless. :) The one for Jane Eyre was good but I think The Handmaid's Tale just topped it. LOL

  4. This reminds me of Honest Trailers. Pretty funny. This is a little off subject, but have you seen the Liberal Red Neck? I think you would really like him.

    I'll confess that I've always wanted to read The Handmaiden's Tale, but was always worried how it would affect me. Now this, this I could handle. :)

  9. I saw the trailer for Hulu's Handmaid's Tale and it gave me goosebumps. Once I can stomach reading a dystopian, I'll have to revisit it. I've never read 1984 but I don't think I can handle it right now.
