Format: Paperback
I was very surprised by this books dour content,our heroine,Offred,is a bit of a rebel,inspired by her friend Moira,who escapes the oppressed nature of their new world.the women are farmed and are existing just to breed while the men are kept well away except for the commander,whos unlikely job is to impregnate the unfortunate women.there is always a thought of escape but we are just left with a sour taste in our mouths after reading this.poor

1.0 out of 5 stars silly notes 25 Aug. 2013
By debbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book for high school students, but the study guide seems designed for elementary. I had hoped to get some background material on Atwood, or analysis of the book, that was unavailable elsewhere. But this is just a simplified version of what you can find on the web anywhere. A waste of money.

4.0 out of 5 stars chilling, compelling, unforgetable 18 July 2000
By Sarah Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book absolutely must be devoured. It is a tale so moving and compelling you feel driven to complete it. Move over Orwell's "1984." You become even more engrossed in this story. The reality of it takes over your own. The eventual outcome of our heroine is never revealed, although the epilogue offers tantilizing clues that keep your mind speculating long after completing the novel. Superb!

4.0 out of 5 stars ...or The Secret Lives of Women 28 Mar. 2000
By Mark C. Coleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Margaret Atwood's cautionary tale of a near-future America governed by a reactionary theocracy delivers insight into how people entrenched in a caste system react to their circumstances. Besides telling the tale of the women who are virtual slaves and concubines, the story shows the other side of the supposedly righteous, puritanical society which dominates every aspect of life in this not entirely unlikely scenario. Atwood also does a fine job of illustarting the small acts of resistance to the monolithic oppression of this society, and the small glimmers of hope the oppressed find and cling to.
