Hands down one of my favorite novels I continually return to time and again for its relevance to today's political opposition to women's rights. The categorization of women based on their marital status has been prominent for centuries, and Atwood takes it one step further by demonstrating the effects of valuing women according to their reproductive abilities. The Handmaid's Tale is a distopian novel that brings to life the chilling consequences of repressed sexuality and political interference with women's bodies and reproductive rights, reminding the reader of the importance of freedom of choice. — Jess Hanlon
"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!"
--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."
