Margaret Atwood's dystopian masterpiece, The Handmaid's Tale, has become a modern classic—and now she brings the iconic story to a dramatic conclusion in this riveting sequel.


More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid's Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.
 
Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third voice: a woman who wields power through the ruthless accumulation and deployment of secrets.
 
As Atwood unfolds The Testaments, she opens up the innermost workings of Gilead as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.

CBC Radio lover ,

Amazing narrator

The audio book is read by Ann Dowd, the Emmy-award wining actor who plays Aunt Lydia in the television version of The Handmaid’s Tale. She delivers a clear and authoritative read. Viewers of the show will enjoy hearing her familiar, albeit chilling voice.

Awesome.

Loved this book. I love how it gave closure to Gilead. I only read handmaids tale last year and I’m happy I didn’t have to wait 35 years to read “the testaments”
5* stars for this audio book- one of the best I have listened to. I love that they had 3 individuals read the testaments of the 3 main characters. Really turned it to life. I like audio books because I have a long commute to town & love to listen while cleaning/and other chores. This was perfect way to get lost into this storey rather then the tidiest task I was doing!
