Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Handmaid's Tale written by Margaret Atwood, read by Elisabeth Moss, with Bradley Whitford, Amy Landecker and Ann Dowd. 

Read by Elisabeth Moss, star of the hit Channel 4 TV series. 

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.

Wonderful book

Fabulous narration with an authentic feel of my favourite book of all time. Highly recommended. Not to be missed commentary on modern times and the risks we’re running.

Not for me!!

I really did have to dig in and persevere with this one! Which I did right to the bitter end and I’m afraid it didn’t get any better for me!

Overrated.

If you like 50 shades of grey and Twilight, this book is for you. I though it was terrible. Naomi Alderman's The Power makes a similar point but is infinitely better.
