The Handmaid's Tale Historical Notes (BOOK and POTENTIAL TV SPOILER AHEAD)
I was just wondering, for anyone who's read the book, if the tv show will eventually end with the historical notes section of the book? I know it would most likely be handled differently, as we are seeing more points of view in the show, but I love that section of the book where we find out that Gilead was not a lasting period of human history and that eventually a more equal society was restored. I think it would be interesting if they eventually went there. I also love how that last section reframes everything we have read in that it reveals that we've basically read a transcription of audio tapes that were recovered in some trunk somewhere and the historians have dubbed the tapes, "The Handmaid's Tale" and debate over the authenticity of Offred's account.
I wonder if knowledge of that section of the book would change the way people are discussing it in the tv show thread proper.
I already loved the book, but the addition of this section really enhanced it for me and I think it would be cool if the tv show incorporates this section of the book. Does anyone one know if this is just a one-off or if they plan on doing multiple seasons?
