Now a Hulu Original SeriesThe Handmaid’s Tale is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The regime takes the Book of Genesis absolutely at its word, with bizarre consequences for the women and men in its population. The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment’s calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions. The Handmaid’s Tale is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force. It is Margaret Atwood at her best.

    Review: The Handmaid’s Tale In the world of the near future, who will control women’s bodies? Offered can remember the days before the Republic of Gilead, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now

    So the book was pretty good. But the ending sucked. There is zero closure. I feel like there should have been more.

    Strange ending

    Slowest read ever no action just all blah blah blah. If you’re force to read this for school is even worse with the help of audiobook the narrator took 19 minutes to read a 4 page chapter that’s how slow this book is

    The Handmaid’s tale I gave this story 5 stars because it was totally engrossing, but not because I loved it. This story is like a bad car wreak you pass on a highway, because you want to stop looking, but you can’t make yourself turn away. This story is a horrifying tale of extremes. It’s phrasing is beautiful and terrible at the same time. I would highly recommend this book to anyone but with the caution that you may not be able to get it out of your head afterward.
