Beschreibung

First published in 1985, this is a novel of such power that the reader is unable to forget its images and its forecast. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force. "A novel that brilliantly illuminates some of the darker interconnections between politics and sex".--"The Washington Post Book World".

Margaret Atwood is the author of more than 30 books of fiction, poetry and critical essays. In addition to the classic The Handmaid′,s Tale, her novels include Cat′,s Eye, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize, Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy, and The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize. Oryx and Crake was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2003. Her other books for children include Bashful Bob and Doleful Dorinda and Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes. 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.
