THE HAND­MAID’S TALE

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

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.
