    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....

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

    Someone with more patience, and who doesn't expect the story to go anywhere.


    What could Margaret Atwood have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Less description, more action. A better conclusion. A more realistic dialogue - OfFred would not have remembered all of those details about feeling and thinking post-escape. We know that OfFred makes it out somehow to record her tapes, so a hint at what happens to her would give the reader some satisfaction.


    What about Claire Danes’s performance did you like?

    She did an excellent job. Great intonation and style.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, anger
