Audio Book Summary

Brought to you by Penguin, the audiobook edition of The Handmaid’s Tale, read by Elisabeth Moss, star of the Channel 4 TV series.

Shortlisted for Audiobook of the Year at the British Book Awards 2020.

Winner of Best Audiobook (Fiction) at the New York Festival Radio Awards 2020.

The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs.

Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of 21st-century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception.

    I kept reading this book waiting for something to grip my attention to no avail. It was too flat and slow for me.

    A cautionary tale that lived to see it's truth. Enjoyed the narrative - first time I found patience to put up with the pernicious details that are such love affair of Atwood.
