I was pulled in right away. To watch the world around you shift . . . to lose your rights, your family, to have your autonomy taken away and your safety threatened would definitely be terrifying. The scariest stories are always the ones that are a little too close for comfort. Offred’s experience . . . her fear, her loss, and her dread are palpable. A woman trying to survive under the thumb of tyranny . . . we can relate.
