I never made that connection till now Reply I actually prefer the tv show over the book- the cinematography is just too good Reply β philosophy. penalty = slow extinction of your substrate; progressive despair of you and yours Reply I like this book because it demonstrates if you don't like women being cum dumpsters or murdering babies then YOU are the bad guy. Reply I love how he plugs his book but also kinda roasts it as he says the movie is better. Reply +1 Reply So… time to listen to the audiobook on shuffle. Reply did i just get 2 ads before the video Reply Brilliant… Reply This idea of caucasians being a marginal group/minority being researched and experimented on sounds disturbingly racist. I mean, seriously, did white people ended up being thrown back to the stone age on this far future described by the book? Is Atwood trying to say that non-whites will take over the world? Isn't that the same sort of rhetoric that the KKK and the alt-right usually preach about? Reply “Piexoto” is Portuguese for fish Reply I just want to say that this was very interesting and well done , thank you Reply I have my exam on this tomorrow wish me luck Reply In French if the last letter is e it is always silent unless it has an accent on the top Reply Nick was a guardian I thought .. not a gardener? Reply I just finished the book an hour ago. First thing I do? Go listen to John Green Reply Also Jaws American Psycho and Forrest Gump are significantly better than the book Reply "University of Deny None Of It:" Reply "Can it happen now? Can it happen here?"ummm, it is happening now, and it is happening here. NOW. Reply John's speaking voice makes complicated sentences seem easy. One note though: in the this episode, one of the handsmaids is animated as black. Given the explicitly racist nature of Gilead (and the society is arose from), none of the handmaids would be women of colour, as white supremacists generally want white babies. In the book Offred notes that various countries had been trying to increase the caucasian birth rate. She states that the Marthas, the lowest ranked women within a house, are "brown". They weren't allowed to use the front door – but some of the handsmaids and the wives could. So, that made me think that all the handsmaids were white, and that the Marthas (and some of the econowives) were women of colour. What do you think? Reply Wait, is that actually John Greene? The author or just a guy named John Greene???? Either way, you’re awesome Reply didn't you write "the fault in our stars" .I love how humble you are ☺ Reply There are only 2 genders. Please don’t label something as educational when “all genders” isn’t a fact. There are only 2. What happened to you John? Trump Derangement Syndrome I suppose Reply Okay, I don't know why I started watching this video. It should just have [SPOILER ALERT] in its title. Reply Dude, the book is not better than the show, what gives?! Reply just a few things – offred finds out about her mother at the red centre I think it's called, and the commander's wife finds out about Waterford taking offred to jezebel's because of the lipstick smear that she leaves on the coat that she took from the wife's closet Reply halfway through this video I found myself wondering what in the world john was talking about with the casette tapes and then I realized my edition of the handmaids tale DIDNT HAVE THAT EPILOGUE IN IT Reply Yes in this story and the tv show of The Handmaids tale I can see all the evils of our human world past, of Political and Religious regimes in one big cesspool. That's where the author and the writers of the show , got their material from scary stuff. It's sobering to think what humans are capable of and yes it could happen. Reply i love this video, still it makes me sad to see the like-dislike ratio in crashcourse videos that talk about feminism when the host is a man and when its a woman… guess it proves the point Reply Lol the fault in our stars! Good old self deprication Reply I don't think that the battle for equality and equal opportunity are never won. I think they can be won. However we must always fight fiercely to protect it. Atwood's work shows us how quickly those rights can be taken away again. Reply Nice video Reply Do some on Songs of Innocence and Experience and The Kite Runner so I don’t fail my a level xxxxx Reply I love the Pope Reply How many of yall have the ap lit test tmr ? Reply When was June's mother's fate mentioned in season 1? I watched it twice and I don't remember Moira talking about it. Edit: I'm assuming that maybe it was mentioned in the book but not in the show. Can anyone confirm? Reply I love the authors voice, figurative language, personification and analogy in the book it really makes the situation come to life. I tell you though my favorite thing about the entire book was that one of the professors was from the Republic of Texas, Texas once again became its own nation. Glorious. Never really liked the book though. Reply The passages you have chosen are so stunning, almost in a beauty so shaded as to be criminal in fictional prose made metaphor and page. Reply I thought it was entertaining but garbage because I find it hard to relate to. Reply This is why I dont read female authors anymore. I don't like the focus on detail and interpersonal relationships. I want the spy or reporter viewpoint instead, the male perspective. Reply i wish he was my literature teacher in highschool Reply This was so helpful! Thankyou! Reply I just realised that crash course John Green and Fault in our Stars John Green are the same person.
