Humm, unfortunetly things like that (and "Offred = Off red") got totally lost in the translation (I read it in Spanish).Pen is Envy, get it?? Har har har
Anyway, I did enjoy the book and found the style almost perfect, with powerful images and excellent characters (only Serena Joy was a bit stereotypical to me). I also liked the flashbacks and remind me of "Fugue for darkening island" by Jonathan Priest, which shares some topics with Atwood's novel.
The thing I liked the least was the last chapter with, imho, unneeded explanations and a completely different tone which I found inconsistent with the rest of the book.
4 stars out of 5
