    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"
    "My first Margaret Atwood"

    Performance
    Story

    Beautiful writing, suspenseful in a quiet way, richly formed characters, and a disquieting, dystopian world that makes your sick crawl. Claire Danes performance is spot on.
