    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....

    Emily - Audible says: "My Top Pick for 2012"
    "One of the worst I have listened to, no happiness."

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

    Somebody who doesn't mind a downer book.


    What was most disappointing about Margaret Atwood’s story?

    There was no bright spot. Everything was a downer. Nothing to look forward to. I didn't like she took so long to explain how it happened. I particularly didn't like the ending (or lack of ending).


    What didn’t you like about Claire Danes’s performance?

    I felt read to. It was bland. I like readers like Davina Porter who can tell a story.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was chilling to think how quickly society can change.
