    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....

    Where does The Handmaid's Tale rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the top three


    What other book might you compare The Handmaid's Tale to and why?

    I can't think of a comparable book at the moment.


    Have you listened to any of Claire Danes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great performance! If this is ever made into a movie would I really would like to see her play Offered.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. It left me feeling desperate to know her name and what happened to her.
