Reading "The Handmaid's Tale" for the next book club meeting.
I've avoided it for a long time because I thought it would be too much, but I like it so far.
Serious and scary issues addressed, but with just a sprinkling of hope (which tbh is about all the hope I can make room for a lot of the time these days) and w/a focus mostly on the narrator as a person you almost start to meet as a friend. Softens the blow a bit and makes it easier to handle.
