Three Horrifying Realizations About The Handmaid’s Tale

I don’t normally write reviews of TV shows. But since The Handmaid’s Tale is based on a book, and the book and show are both profoundly insightful and disturbing commentaries on patriarchy and misogyny, I’ve decided to write a review.

Book Review: The Doubt Factory by Paolo Bacigalupi

After thoroughly enjoying several of Paolo Bacigalupi’s books geared toward adults, I decided to read his “Young Adult” books, including The Doubt Factory.

The Doubt Factory definitely has a YA feel. But even as a not-quite-young adult, I really enjoyed it. And the political themes it explores are highly relevant for people of all ages.

Book Review: Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

I’ve enjoyed other Paolo Bacigalupi books, but I initially put off reading Ship Breaker because it was listed as young adult fiction. When I read that it was being made into a movie, though, I decided to give it a try. I’m glad that I did!
