Description

Brought to you by Penguin.  

Shortlisted for Audiobook of the Year at the British Book Awards 2020.

Winner of Best Audiobook (Fiction) at the New York Festival Radio Awards 2020.

Read by Elisabeth Moss, star of the hit Channel 4 TV series. 

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 21st-century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception.

Commentaires

"Moss embodies the lead character, Offred, perfectly and reads with grace and at an ideal pace." (Daily Mail

"This beautifully produced audiobook version of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale will whet appetites for its long-awaited sequel, The Testaments, released in September [...] The several narrators match the powerful heft of Atwood’s elegant, economical prose." (The Times)

et alors...

L'histoire parait assez improbable, j'ai eu du mal à adhérer car beaucoup de choses me semblaient incohérentes. L'actrice est bonne, je ne sais pas trop si j'ai envie de lire la suite.

Captivating story, brilliantly read

An engaging story made doubly so by the main narrator's brilliant reading. The final chapter, though jarring and unexpected, reveals an ingenious concept and structure that will have me downloading the sequel as soon as I finish this review.

Anxiously good !

I came here after binging the 3 first seasons in 2 weeks: I needed more from Offred and Elisabeth Moss delivered this jewel of a narrative !!

great overall

Great book, great narration, even though because of its style of writing, the story might gain to be read and not listened to.

Recommended before or after season 1 of series.

While clearly there is some overlap and some of the drama is in a somewhat different order to the TV series. I think its a compelling listen before or after season 1 of the TV series. The primary story line of the book is solely narrated by Elisabeth Moss, with the other narrators only appearing at the end outside of the main story line. I found Elisabeth Moss extraordinary. I must say at the start of the book I was a little unsure about her, I think it was the case that she did not do her best work at the beginning and normal expectations one normally has about the clearer diction typical of most professional narrators. As my expectations washed away I found myself truly amazed by the performance the way the emotion of the character was conveyed was amazing. I found the book was able to fill in various gaps in the TV series and carried far more impact on me than season 1 of the TV series, not to say I did not find the TV series fantastic as well.

A very well written story

After having watched the series, I wanted to listen to the book to see how different they were. I was not disappointed, such a compelling novel, I listened every spare moment that I got, longing for long car rides to be able to listen for extended periods of time.

Interesting events and concept

Intriguing overall concept and events. Underwhelming toward the end, left wondering plenty of things - not in a good way. Beautifully read.

An Interesting Dystopia

Started very good, but I lost my focus on the last quarter and this gradually lowered my interest in following with the next book. However, I will definitely watch the show after this. E. Moss is such a great actress and I have loads of respect for her. I really enjoyed listening to her and it was “alright” as the book is in mostly diary form. I think it would have been a better experience if there were a bit more distinct character sounds. To me, that is what I like in audiobooks, to experience the sounds of character. Overall good story, well-read, and I have finished relatively quickly. Would recommend if the book description makes you excited

Engancha

Estupendo. La voz te mete a fondo en la historia, que es impresionante. Te hace incluso pensar en sociedades donde hay grupos no tan lejos de como viven en esta distopia

One of the best Audiobooks I've bought.

Very well written and read. Definitely recommend it. The story is fascinating and the characters are well though out and go through a personal development.

Ganz interessante Geschichte, aber sehr langweilige Sprecherin

Ich habe die ersten beiden Folgen von „The Handmaid’s Tale“ gesehen und mich danach entschlossen, aufs Audiobook umzusatteln. Die Geschichte ist ganz interessant, wenn auch etwas wirr erzählt und ohne ein zufriedenstellendes Ende. Allerdings hat mir die träge, monotone Stimme fast jegliche Zuhörfreude genommen. Die Geschichte wird so teilnahmslos vorgetragen, bzw. -geflüstert, jegliche Intonation fehlt. Wirklich schade. Vielleicht sollte man beim nächsten Mal doch wieder lieber professionelle Sprecher und nicht Schauspieler casten...
