"Compulsively readable" (Daily Telegraph)
"The mother of all feminist dystopian novels." (Sarra Manning Red)
"The novel satirises the strain of evangelical puritanism in American culture and the objectification and control of women’s bodies. It is more broadly a contemporary myth of despotic power, and how such power deforms those who are subjected to it." (Tim Adams Observer)
"One of Atwood’s finest pieces of work serves as a great reminder of what humanity is capable of." (Hannah Dunn Red)
"Margaret Atwood is a wry and perceptive observer of society as well as an original storyteller" (Cecilia Heyes Psychologist)
From the Inside Flap
WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION FROM MARGARET ATWOOD
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 vision of the future gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's irony, wit and astute perception.

If I had to use one word to describe this book it would be "terrifying". I simply loved it!
