Look for The Testaments, the sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, available now. An instant classic and eerily prescient cultural phenomenon, from “the patron saint of feminist dystopian fiction” (New York Times). Now an award-winning Hulu series starring Elizabeth Moss. In Margaret Atwood’s dystopian future, environmental disasters and declining birthrates have led to a Second American Civil War. The result is the rise of the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian regime that enforces rigid social roles and enslaves the few remaining fertile women. Offred is one of these, a Handmaid bound to produce children for one of Gilead’s commanders. Deprived of her husband, her child, her freedom, and even her own name, Offred clings to her memories and her will to survive. At once a scathing satire, an ominous warning, and a tour de force of narrative suspense, The Handmaid’s Tale is a modern classic.
Includes an introduction by Margaret Atwood

"A novel that brilliantly illuminates some of the darker interconnections between politics and sex . . . Just as the world of Orwell's 1984 gripped our imaginations, so will the world of Atwood's handmaid!" —The Washington Post Book World
"The Handmaid's Tale deserves the highest praise." —San Francisco Chronicle
"Atwood takes many trends which exist today and stretches them to their logical and chilling conclusions . . . An excellent novel about the directions our lives are taking . . . Read it while it's still allowed." —Houston Chronicle
God, I LOOOOVE this book!!!! Rainbow Rowell never disappoints. Plot-wise, this book is fresh and new and always surprising. Similar to Harry Potter, the characters in this book attend a school for magical learning, but instead, the magical system is all based around words, phrases, adn the power of language. a completely fresh and fascinating type of magic, one that us book lovers can all appreciate, huh? But the BEST part of this book is the romance, one that ignites the book and the heart of the reader, both. (I was, if we're being hones here, shrieking in joy a LOT while reading this book.) So. GOOD!!! - Isabel
