The television adaptation of Margaret Atwood's modern classic The Handmaid's Tale has turned heads and earned so many awards, not least for Elisabeth Moss' stunning performance in the lead role as Offred. Now is the ideal time to read the novel that inspired the series...Offred finds herself a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, a religious totalitarian site in what was the United States. She has been placed in the household of Commander Fred Waterford and has one function - to breed.If she refuses to do this horrific and degrading act, Offred will be hanged. But even this repressive and hideous state cannot eradicate hope... Offred remembers how life was before as she tries to find a way out.
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.
