Set in the Republic of Gilead, the former United States, during the late twentieth century.

This is the story of one of these young women.

this is NOT an audiobook for a Atwood novel. Only 2 disks, it's like a short play ! Disappointing.

The library description says this is unabridged. It also says, "dramatization". When I saw it was only 2 CDs I realized this is not the whole book. The Claire Danes audio version is 11 hours.

I wanted to love this story so much - and honestly, I did love the story. But this audiobook is a dramatized telling, not just a single voice actor telling the story and playing the characters. With the voice actors switching, with music and with sound effects, this audiobook CD constantly pulled me out of Margaret Atwood's impressive tale. Just get the book! Or at least a version by a single voice actor.

An interesting short story. Stayed in my thoughts long after it was done.
