    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....

    Melinda says: "Not So Far-Fetched -- Still Chilling"
    "Too Depressing"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have no idea


    Has The Handmaid's Tale turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No necessarily


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

    I read most of my books by CD or by downloading them to my phone. Claire Danes did a good job - I just hated this book


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Handmaid's Tale?

    Don't know - I could not even finish the book.
