Inhaltsangabe

Audie Award, Fiction, 2013

Margaret Atwood's popular dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale explores a broad range of issues relating to power, gender and religious politics. Multiple Golden Globe award-winner Claire Danes (Romeo and Juliet, The Hours) gives a stirring performance of this classic in speculative fiction, one of the most powerful and widely read novels of our time.

After a staged terrorist attack kills the President and most of Congress, the government is deposed and taken over by the oppressive and all controlling Republic of Gilead. Offred, now a Handmaid serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife, can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name. Despite the danger, Offred learns to navigate the intimate secrets of those who control her every move, risking her life in breaking the rules in hopes of ending this oppression.

The Handmaid's Tale is part of Audible's A-List Collection, featuring the world's most celebrated actors narrating distinguished works of literature that each star had a hand in selecting. For more great books performed by Hollywood's finest, click here.

Kritikerstimmen

"Claire Danes sparkles in this performance...Danes's Offred is complex, and her flashes of intense strength highlight her vulnerability. This is a consuming listen, thanks to Danes's emotional subtleties." (AudioFile)

    Geschichte
    "Verstörung und Sprachgenuss"

    A wonderful book. Written precisely in a beautiful, suggestive and subtle style.
    I really enjoyed the story, the characters, the pictures it created in my head.

    The story itself is difficult to swallow. Though I thoroughly enjoyed this dystopia which was so different from any other I have read so far I had problems with the basic premise. The way the male characters act in this new society which gives them the utmost power over women (though in a strange way again not) and how quickly they felt comfortable with it when it happened didn't quite feel real and authentic to me. But then again after finishing The Handmaids Tale I had a huge discussion with an older friend about it who again finds it very realistic, so maybe I'm just too young and naive to see the true nature of men…? (That's what he suggested anyway, I just stick to my opinion that men are not all evil and if presented with the opportunity would take back full control by suppressing women. Though you do see some uncomfortable parallels with the stories we hear every day from the middle east...)

    In any case, the way the protagonist and the female characters were written was fantastic and very authentic. You see the story through the protagonists eyes and Margaret Atwood manages to make it very real for you to live in and struggle with our main character.
    I absolutely recommend this book to everyone out there who has a taste for dystopian books - but also can take such stories with a pinch of salt.
