Beschreibung

Don't let the bastards grind you down.'Imagine a world where women's bodies are controlled by men. This is the story of Offred, a Handmaid forced into sexual servitude, in the country once known as the USA. This masterpiece blurs the boundaries between fiction and news headlines.

Margaret Atwood is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry and critical essays. Her novels include Cat's Eye, The Robber Bride, Alias Grace, The Blind Assassin and the MaddAddam trilogy. Her 1985 classic, The Handmaid's Tale, went back into the bestseller charts with the election of Donald Trump, when The Handmaids became a symbol of resistance against the disempowerment of women, and with the 2017 release of the award-winning Channel 4 TV series.

Atwood has won numerous awards including the Booker Prize, the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Imagination in Service to Society, the Franz Kafka Prize, the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade and the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2019 she was made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour for services to literature. She has also worked as a cartoonist, illustrator, librettist, playwright and puppeteer. She lives in Toronto, Canada.

The Handmaid's Tale
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Zürich am 07.05.2021

Wunderschöner Einband! Faszinierende Geschichte. Die Beschreibungen rund um das karge und ungerechte Leben der Mägde sind so realistisch, dass man meinen könnte es handle sich um eine Autobiografie. Die aktuelle Serie, welche dazu produziert wurde, ist sehr an das Buch angelehnt und genial umgesetzt.

Women of the world, take this as a warning as to what one day could happen!

In a dystopian not so faraway future, Offred is a handmaid, one of the last fertile women in this society. As such, she is assigned to one officer to mate, conceive and carry out a child. The officers are often married but since their women cannot reproduce it falls under the duty of the bright-red dressed handmaids to repopulate the civilisation. She is treated well as long as she is able to fulfill her duty but always under the threat to be exiled to the feared and brutal colonies the moment she is no longer useful to society. Margaret Atwood's „The Handmaid's Tale“ contains the story of the handmaid Offred but also of her memories before the regime took away women's rights and put her in the position she now is in - memories of her husband Luke and her daughter whose name is never revealed. One cannot tell much more as to not to spoiler the story of Offred too much. Atwood created a dystopia which is a possible reality in the future, for the fight for women's rights is not over yet, and what was already archieved could be taken away again if each and everyone of us is not careful about it. This handmaid's tale should sink deep into every woman young or old and I highly recommend reading this book!

A story so breathtaking and deep, that I can hardly describe how much it moved me! That stunning and full of upsetting events that it left me speechless.
