The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one option: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like all 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. A brilliant and astutely perceived evocation of twenty-first-century America.

“The Handmaid's Tale”

It has taken me a long time to get round to reading this but I am so very glad I did.

It's actually quite difficult for me to write a review about this book, because I can't actually pinpoint exactly what I loved about it, I just know I did. Atwood proves yet again that her ability to simply... More

“The Handmaid's Tale”

Some of the finest prose ever written, with lines of thought you wish you could think, a very rare book where the narrator actually challanges you to keep up, not only with her social situation but her view upon it,... More
