    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"
    "Keep you thinking for days."

    Story

    I was riveted to this intriguing story and didn't want to put it down until it was over. I felt the book was deeply engaging and the desperation of the characters was tangible. The story made me feel outrage, sympathy and fear all at the same time. It made me want to climb into the book and take action but at the same time I felt so grateful that I do not live in that world. I believe the book will be one of those that lingers in my mind for awhile.
