    This book summary is created for individuals who want to flesh out the important contents and are too busy to go through the entire original book. This book is not intended to replace the original book. 
    Change has arrived in America. With it comes a new world order—the rise of a theocratic regime called the Republic of Gilead which takes the Old Testament at its every word. 
    Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the ill-fated Handmaids in the new Republic of Gilead. In the present world, Handmaids are stripped of their own names, their rights, their families, and even their ability to read and write. Now a mere possession of one of the new regime's formidable Commanders and his Wife, Offred's value lies only in her fertility and her capacity to bear a child.   
    Gripping and grotesque, The Handmaid's Tale is a dystopian masterpiece that illustrates what could happen when the liberal transforms into the puritanical, and what people are capable of when the puritanical ultimately distorts into the radical.

    Siddhartha is a novel by Hermann Hesse that deals with the spiritual journey of an Indian man named Siddhartha during the time of the Buddha. The book was written in German in a simple, powerful, and lyrical style. The word Siddhartha derives from two words in the Sanskrit language, siddha (achieved) + artha (meaning or wealth). The two words together mean "he who has found meaning (of existence)" or "he who has attained his goals". The Buddha's name, before his renunciation, was Prince Siddhartha Gautama. He was Prince of Kapilvastu, Nepal. In this book, the Buddha is referred to as "Gotama". A major preoccupation of Hesse in writing Siddhartha was to cure his 'sickness with life' (Lebenskrankheit) by immersing himself in Indian philosophy such as that expanded in the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita.
