    Description
    DISCOVER the BESTSELLING DYSTOPIAN NOVEL behind the AWARD-WINNING TV SERIES Second season now airing on Channel 4 starring Elisabeth MossWith a new introduction from Margaret Atwood`I believe in the resistance as I believe there can be no light without shadow; or rather, no shadow unless there is also light.'Offred is a Handmaid in The Republic of Gilead, a religious totalitarian state in what was formerly known the United States. She is placed in the household of The Commander, Fred Waterford - her assigned name, Offred, means `of Fred'. She has only one function: to breed. If Offred refuses to enter into sexual servitude to repopulate a devastated world, she will be hanged. Yet even a repressive state cannot eradicate hope and desire. As she recalls her pre-revolution life in flashbacks, Offred must navigate through the terrifying landscape of torture and persecution in the present day, and between two men upon which her future hangs.Masterfully conceived and executed, this haunting vision of the future places Margaret Atwood at the forefront of dystopian fiction.'As relevant today as it was when Atwood wrote it...no television event has hit such a nerve ...The Handmaid's Tale is more relevant one year after the first season' - Guardian 'Don't expect to be gripped by a more potent or involving drama this year' - Telegraph

    Dystopia at its best

    This is the best dystopian novel I have ever read. Period. The possibility of such a horrid future cannot be denied. That's where the book gets you. And it doesn't let go for days. You are trapped like a bewildered fly in its artistic, beautiful and yet horrifying web, and there is nothing you can do about it. My advice: read it in short sessions. The writing might dog you down if you try to read it in one sitting. But when taken in small doses, the writing is marvelous.

    Stunning Imagination.

    Margaret Atwood has an aggressive imagination about dystopia that is created in this novel. When religious fundamentalism becomes the norm of life the world would be upside down. This upside down world is powerfully portrayed in this novel. Being a Canadian the religious fundamentalism in the novel is related to Christianity. She has a power generating prose. Do not miss the novel.
    A sample excerpt: "A man is just a woman's strategy to create other women."

    Terrific purchase

    it is one of the must read books for all book worms. the way the dystopian future has been presented is quite impressive in the fact that it was written in the 1985, and the flair with which the book moves ahead leaves within us a part of the protagonist herself even after it has ended.
