The Handmaid's Tale
- By: Margaret Atwood
- Narrated by: Elisabeth Moss, Bradley Whitford, Amy Landecker, and others
- Length: 11 hrs and 22 mins
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 21st-century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception.

The Handmaidens Tale
I really enjoyed this book. It is not in the normal novel format but is more like the voice inside your head. It does make the story a bit jumpy and a little hard to follow if you are not paying attention ... but overall it is a great story.
