WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE

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.

Great Book

Really enjoyed reading this answered some questions left hanging from previous book. Altho wish there had been more information on “the baby daddies”.

Riveting

I delayed reading this thinking it would be a disappointing follow-up to The Handmaiden’s Tale. Was I wrong! I couldn’t put it down and am thrilled to find out the real ending to the former book.
