The Handmaid's Tale is by far one of my favorite books. I've read it several times and decided to listen to the audio book. At first, though a fan, I was hesitant to listen to Claire Danes narrate this book. Not only because its so near and dear to my heart, but also because celebrity narrators, often are cast not because they are good narrators, but because they are celebrities.
Claire Danes was amazing. Absolutely amazing. She drew me in so completely, that I understood aspects of the book that I never had before.
I'm so glad, that I didn't miss out on this.
