    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....

    "Amazing book, slightly awkward reading performance"

    Story

    I love Margaret Atwood as an author. I decided to try this as my first audio book. Claire Danes as a narrator has both good and bad aspects. Sometimes it feels like she's rushing through the narration (which is bad) and sometimes she seems to be portraying the feelings of the main character (which is good).

    I highly recommend Margaret Atwood books for their poetry and sentence structure. Claire Danes as a narrator is not exactly my cup of tea. I would highly suggest listening to the sample in full (it's about 3 minutes) and seeing how you feel about the narration.

    I thought this would be a guided tour of audible. Instead it was a random story about a man stalking a woman.

    This is a horrible thing.
