    Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife. She may go out once a day to markets whose signs are now pictures because women are not allowed to read. She must pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, for in a time of declining birthrates her value lies in her fertility, and failure means exile to the dangerously polluted Colonies. Offred can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name....

    Where does The Handmaid's Tale rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Still my favorite. I began my Audible listening experience with THT, and I have to say, so far nothing has lived up to it. Claire Danes' performance is worthy of some kind of award, I feel. The story is chilling on its own, but Danes nails the characters' emotions and shines in the interior monologue. For those who have reviewed this poorly, it is clear from the comments that they don't understand the story. THT is a classic dystopian novel with brilliant description and a true sense of moral struggle, not a crime thriller or a fifty shades (gasp). I typically listen to audible books on my daily walks - this one was so hard to put down that I lost 5 pounds in a week. Happy listening.
