eBook Deal: Margaret Atwood’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’
  |  @   |  

The Kindle ebook deal of the day over at Amazon today is Margaret Atwood‘s dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale for only $1.49 (that’s 83% off the regular price of $8.99).

Note – this deal is valid only for today, Thursday, December 29, 2011, until 11:59pm PST.

If you’d like to purchase a physical copy of The Handmaid’s Tale, the book is also in paperback for only $10.20.

A radical and brilliant departure for Margaret Atwood, this story is told with such power that the reader will be unable to forget its images and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States, now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest by reverting to a society of repressive intolerance.

In 1987, The Handmaid’s Tale won the Arthur C. Clarke Award for best science fiction novel published in the UK. It was also nominated for the other science fiction awards like the Nebula Award and the Prometheus Award.

NOTE – you don’t actually need a Kindle device to read these ebooks. Books can be read on a Kindle or one of Amazon’s free reading apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows PC, Mac, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7. Also, you can gift Kindle books and set your gift to be delivered whenever you want to anyone with an email address.
