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.

Fantastic read. Awesome way to continue the story on a hands maid tale

Below are my comments .

The handmaid’s tale is one of my favourite books. Now, I’m happy to have read the sequel. I would love to see a third book that would describe the mop-up, so to speak. And, also, the geopolitical context, the stories of California and Texas, how big Gilead actually was. And also a prequel, how Gilead came to be.
