The Handmaid's Tale

Unabridged Audiobook

Brought to you by Penguin.

Shortlisted for Audiobook of the Year at the British Book Awards 2020.

Winner of Best Audiobook (Fiction) at the New York Festival Radio Awards 2020.


The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs.

Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception.

'Moss embodies the lead character, Offred, perfectly and reads with grace and at an ideal pace.' Daily Mail

Perhaps we could include The Times review of The Handmaid's too: 'This beautifully produced audiobook version of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale will whet appetites for its long-awaited sequel, The Testaments, released in September [...] The several narrators match the powerful heft of Atwood’s elegant, economical prose.' The Times

    Excellent book and the narrator brings the story to life.

  • Shelagh M.

    Profound story that haunts the reader for quite a time. Elizabeth Moss is truly the right voice of Offred.

  • Katie W.

    Loved this book, I don’t know why I didn’t read it sooner. Honestly read it, the narrator is amazing and the story is amazing. It’s a must read

  • Niki Collier

    A cautionary tale that lived to see it's truth. Enjoyed the narrative - first time I found patience to put up with the pernicious details that are such love affair of Atwood.

  • Dermot L.

    Engaging listen

  • Maria L.

    Brilliant story and well read by Elisabeth Moss

  • Florentina G.

    Great audiobook, well written and well read. I recommend it.

  • Jade Grace W.

    Fantastic modern classic, I remember reading this for the first time and being in awe. Great audiobook, well written and well read. Really makes you think, it’s as relevant today as it was the day it was written.

  • Alma C.

    Excellent listen. Elizabeth Moss is a perfect fix for June and an excellent narrator. Helps to fill gaps in series 1. Can’t wait for the Testements
