    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....

    If you could sum up The Handmaid's Tale in three words, what would they be?

    captivating dystopian novel


    What does Claire Danes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Claire Danes does a wonderful job narrating the story. She really acts out the part, and you feel so connected to the main character

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    What made the experience of listening to The Casual Vacancy the most enjoyable?

    A really great story. You get so involved with the characters, and really feel for them. I would highly recommend The Casual Vacancy to anyone. I read this because I loved Harry Potter... and while it's NOTHING like Harry Potter, it's still great writing and a great story. A must read.
