When She Woke

books0930seeThe immediate thought upon beginning When She Woke was Margaret Atwood meets Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hannah Payne’s name even sounds like Hester Prynne. I don’t normally love futuristic novels. Exceptions are The Handmaids Tale and The Hunger Games series (embarrassing to admit, but true). I cruised through When She Woke while on vacation, neatly reading it in two days. I love lazy days by the pool reading – I wish I could make that into a career. But I digress. When She Woke was an enjoyable read. There were flaws, like Hannah’s ridiculous commitment to Reverend Dale, and a few not-fully-fleshed-out threads in the story, but overall, it was an intriguing storyline and a compelling read. I recommend it.
