THE HANDMAID’S TALE
Published in 1985, Margaret Atwood’s bestseller is a dystopian tale about Offred, who is torn from her family and forced into sexual slavery by the Gilead regime.
The 2017 TV series was set in the present-day, while the original was set in the 1970s and 1980s.
The book ends with Offred getting into a black van heading to an unknown future. The TV series, with Elisabeth Moss as Offred, above, ended in the same way, but the second season will carry on the story without the book to draw on. Anything could happen.
