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
  • Golda Ross
    I was enthralled and pulled totally into this New World
  • Dalea Nolan
    Very interesting concept.
  • Bill Shubert
    Creepy Big brother meets super-patriarchal Christian theocracy. The results are as frightening as you would expect.
  • sarah Radloff-Diercks
    Amazing Beautifully written, scandalous “tail”
  • Jacqueline Sterrett
    Ending was not great, hope the TV series they do something better with ending
  • Cassie Amsden
    Overall good The book was good. Alot of very descriptive language that could get tedious but it was understandable due to the position on Offered. Ending was frustrating but overall I enjoyed it.
  • Corinne Walker
    Is ok. Great details and a lot of unique concepts. Not a big fan of the ending.
