Description of this Book

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs. Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review One of Atwood's finest pieces of work serves as a great reminder of what humanity is capable of. -- Hannah Dunn * Red * Compulsively readable * Daily Telegraph * Out of a narrative shadowed by terror, gleam sharp perceptions, brilliant intense images and sardonic wit -- Peter Kemp * Independent * The Handmaid's Tale is both a superlative exercise in science fiction and a profoundly felt moral story -- Angela Carter Moving, vivid and terrifying. I only hope it's not prophetic -- Conor Cruise O'Brien * The Listener *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
