The handmaid's tale (I)

"I try not to think too much. Like other things now, thought must be rationed. There’s a lot that doesn’t bare thinking about. Thinking can hurt your chances, and I intend to last. I know why there is no glass, in front of the watercolor picture of blue irises, and why the window opens only partly and why the glass in it is shatterproof. It isn’t running away they’re afraid of. We wouldn’t get far. It’s those other escapes, the ones you can open in yourself, given a cutting edge."

Atwood, Margaret, The handmaid's tale, P.10

Esta novela es impresionante. Una especie de 1984 con sensibilidad femenina.
