"Atwood takes us into a modern Orwellian nightmare... This haunting
novel now seems scarily prophetic. Bleakly compelling and chilling,
but with a redemptive twist." -- Rebecca Wallersteiner * Lady *
"Four years in the making, this graphic novelisation by Atwood's fellow Canadian, illustrator Renee Nault, is strikingly visualised." * Bookseller *
"Whatever one's level of Gileadean connoisseurship (or ignorance), this version, superbly adapted and illustrated in ink and watercolour is an excellent addition to the formats." * Strong Words *
