Description-
  • 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...

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Margaret Atwood's THE HANDMAID'S TALE is a chilling novel set in a dystopia of the not-so-distant future. British actress Joanna David's reading is unwavering but perhaps too chilly even for this story. Her choice not to give unique voices to the characters is appropriate, especially since the narrative is set in a dehumanized world where individual expression is not tolerated. She does deliver many of the dramatic scenes effectively. But there are too many occasions where she seems to miss Atwood's irony and other textual cues, and the listener is sometimes shortchanged by her misinterpretation. D.B.
