The Handmaid Tale

Really well written and read, it has made it a bit easier to understand the book and understand the series on channel 4.

Really disappointed!

My own fault but I thought this was the actual book! My sight isn’t great, hence audible books, so I misread description. Gutted!

Dry Laborious Listen

Very difficult to get into the story. The monotonous tone of the narrators did nothing for the book. I for one will not be listening to the rest of the books in this serious.

boring

Not worth the download or time, it's pretty boring and nothing like the actual book like it seems

Fantastic narration.

So enjoyed listening to this book. Story is told by three characters and each is read by a different actress. Also loved how Mrs Atwood has concluded her classic well loved story.

Great addition.

A short but great addition to the story which adds a lot to the tale and explains a bit about the thinking behind it.
