I just loaned this to my sister's fiance tonight. He wants to see how it compares to 1984.

Yay! I love Margaret Atwood, (not just cause I'm a Canuck, either). Read the books you listed and definitely pick up her new one, Oryx and Crake. It's very similar in theme to Handmaid's Tale but from a man's POV.

The Diviners, by Margaret Laurence (another Canuck) is also a great "banned" book.

Yay! I love that book, and I adore Margaret Atwood. I really, really liked the Blind Assassin, haven't read The Edible Woman yet.
