I really hate endings that are ughohmygoshwhattheheckreallyhappened-ish and unfortunately I had to read one and now I just can’t seem to contain my curiousness. I have spent the past week rolling around on the ground contemplating on whether or not I should write a letter to the author demanding on an answer to what the heck actually happened. Then I start to wonder if the author is still alive and then I realize that the author probably gets asked this question more than a billion times and probably gave a generic answer that basically means “I’m not going to tell you because I didn’t think that far and I love to make people roll around the floor, burning with curiosity”.
Anyways, The Handmaids Tale just absolutely sucks because of the ending. I hate the ending. The ending should just let got of the cliff and land somewhere FIRMLY and OBVIOUSLY because honestly, cliff hanger endings just suck. Ughhhhhhhh STRESS.
What I really hate most about this “ending” is that it could go either way. She could die or she could not die and live in freedom kind of. However I think that Nick was a big fat poopy liar and she is going to her death because I’m a pessimistic person but I don’t know. I mean, what if her whole life was a lie? You know, kind of like in the Matrix. Maybe the May-day thing is just fake, something planted by the Eyes or whatever, you know, false hope? But maybe not. Ugh, I don’t knowwwwwwwww *sob* the story of my book ruined life.
