A stunning bespoke gift package featuring an iconic design from the prize winning artist, Noma Bar, eye catching sprayed edges and ribbon The perfect present for those who like their beauty with a bit of bite 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 evocation of twenty first century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood s devastating irony, wit and astute perception. I read the poor reviews and the good ones I watched the series Both book and tv adaptation, in my opinion, are fantastic The book is a very descriptive narrative of a nightmare society I loved the descriptions so eloquently written by the author I would not hesitate to recommend this The reviews give an indication of what will and will not appeal and I suggest they be looked at before spending money. Not my usual read But read on the recommendation of a friend Don t expect the script of the TV series the book is much much better.Margaret Atwood uses words to spin a tale in which you get entangled I really didn t want to put it down, even though I watched it on TV and knew the story I would and have recommended this book to friends not as a vintage classic but as a must read classic This book is amazing It has been my favourite novel for fifteen years since I read it for A Level I m now an English teacher and every year I buy copies than I d like to admit to give to students It is, in my opinion, the perfect dystopian novel fiction that s just close enough to reality to scare the living daylights out of you. Total and absolute pretentious rubbish Endlessly boring with no coherent plot of any substance The author is no Aldous Huxley I am sorry I wasted my money buying this and even sorry I wasted my time reading it. Ive never read a book like this before And I ve read many hundreds in my life This was on a blog titled 25 books every woman needs to read in her life and it came in at number one I m so glad I bought it because I couldn t put it downIf I had to use one word to describe this book it would be terrifying I simply loved it Can t believe it s taken me so long to get round to reading this book I was not disappointed I love the writing style of Margaret Atwood and the detail that went into the creation of the book I could hardly put it down until I finished it. This book was recommended to me by many women and was listed in several Must reads for women I had great expectations and yet this is one of the very few books, which I just couldn t finish no matter how hard I tried I have never read something stupid and degrading to women maybe only comparable to 50 shades of grey in shallowness Writing style well with all my respect to the famous Ms Atwood, it is strained and presumptuous, and the narration is slow and boring.
