Description

In this multi-award-winning, bestselling novel, Margaret Atwood has created a stunning Orwellian vision of the near future. This is the story of Offred, one of the unfortunate “Handmaids” under the new social order who have only one purpose: to breed. In Gilead, where women are prohibited from holding jobs, reading, and forming friendships, Offred’s persistent memories of life in the “time before” and her will to survive are acts of rebellion. Provocative, startling, prophetic, and with Margaret Atwood’s devastating irony, wit, and acute perceptive powers in full force, The Handmaid’s Tale is at once a mordant satire and a dire warning.

    From turtlesquirt
    Great book- sometimes difficult to read as one can see how easily and with little trouble our way of life can change. Enjoy our freedoms and remember they haven’t always been there for women. We must continue to uphold women’s rights and human rights regardless of who is in charge in the government. The people have the power to make changes if we are strong enough to fight injustice around us.
