Reviews

"Compulsively readable" * Daily Telegraph *
"Out of a narrative shadowed by terror, gleam sharp perceptions, brilliant intense images and sardonic wit" -- Peter Kemp * Independent *
"The Handmaid's Tale is both a superlative exercise in science fiction and a profoundly felt moral story" -- Angela Carter
"Moving, vivid and terrifying. I only hope it's not prophetic" -- Conor Cruise O'Brien * The Listener *
"The images of brilliant emptiness are one of the most striking aspects of this novel about totalitarian blindness...the effect is chilling" -- Linda Taylor * Sunday Times *
