Chaotic future upheaval.
Big Brother for the fact that one's own actions are no longer theirs due to psychological manipulation by the State.
When Offred was describing her life before the changes.
This was a great read. It hits home with how the current state of affairs sways. I recommend it and caution the reader to take it as a cautionary tale toward the government body having too much power.
Yes because I feel it serves such a strong warning against allowing the government to rule and regulate that which is inherently flawed and as a result, beautiful and perfectly created. When the government oversteps nature, a chain reaction ensues.
The detail the author provides leaves the reader which powerful imagery and leaves very little to the imagination in the sense the reader does not have to supplement with what might be false or misguided images. For example, when describing the hatchery, the author is certain to mention in detail the process and in essence sets up a great foundation for the reader to better understand the actions of those that stemmed from the hatchery.
I have not but I had always "heard" this book in American English and it was brilliant to hear it in its native tongue if you will as the story is centered in London.
The narrator was very vivacious, animated and energetic. Some of the most touching moments included the dynamic of John and "Linder" or Linda.
I highly recommend this to everyone. This book is a good "starting point" for those getting into current affairs. This is a true foreshadow of events that have occurred that the author hit on years prior but a closer look reveals that "Big Brother" and conditioning are amongst us. To have free thought is to be a strong reader and this supports such. Happy reading!
Yes!! Although it is slow to "read" at times, it was a delightful listen!
Honestly, Ms. Ericksen's performance. I don't think I ever could have imagined the characters as vividly as she portrayed them. That was a delight!
The characters come to life. She spoke with an English accent, of course but her Irish characters were impressive!
No just because it was slow-moving at times but it was a delightful listen!
I would consider this a must "read!"
Stephen King is imaginative but he babbled on about gun control in an illogical manner.
I think Christian Rummel was set up for failure having to narrate this dribble. Mr. Rummel added fiery disdain that was enjoyable but the 'script' doomed his performance. I would read something else he narrated.
No. The narration was good...Mr. Rummel could read a gothic novel or thriller and be amazing. I think Mr. King should have had his "editorial" reviewed prior to publishing. It was not organized and fluid and more of a soap box forum that a critic of gun control and legislation.
