I'm now two episodes behind, but have enjoyed it very much so far.

If there is a criticism it's that it's a little slow in places and gives the feeling, at least to me, that this is only really because of the need to fill a season (or two, as it seems to have got a 2nd one) rather than because the plot particularly needs a slow-build of tension.

I've not read the book so I don't know how it compares. I think Atwood is a wonderful writer though, The Blind Assassin is one of the best books I've ever read.
