Set in the Republic of Gilead, the former United States, during the late twentieth century. The declining birth rates caused by the effects of nuclear fallout and the AIDS epidemic result in a new social structure where all young women who can bear healthy children, are allocated to powerful regime men. This is the story of one of these young women.

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Good voice for the character submitted by lballard on June 17, 2018, 9:53pm This book is voiced by a woman who is completely believable as offred. He voice isn’t unpleasant either. There are some books that are wonderful in themselves, but excruciating on CD. Luckily, this is not one. It is painful to listen to at times, especially given our current political climate, but that is the book.
