Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She has 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.

This book is just amazing.



TV series set me reading!


I read the book after watching three episodes of the TV series and feeling that the context was missing something. Turned out to be a good move as with the book read and went back to the TV series and enjoyed it considerably. Similar experience with Clockwork Orange. Reading the book after being turned off by the movie made the movie a very different experience.
