  • Gilead Revisited

    Despite lacking the impact of 'The Handmaid's Tale', 'The Testaments' is a fine sequel, which delves deeper into the horrific, and crumbling, regime of Gilead. The tale is told by 3 narrators, the imposing Aunt Lydia, and two young girls, whose identities are perhaps a little too easy to deduce. The strength of the novel lies largely in Aunt Lydia's chapters which include chilling details of the origins of Gilead, political intrigues, disturbing secrets and meticulous calculation. Atwood's use of language is exquisite and powerful. The gripping plot, although contrived in places, is a real page-turner, which leads to a moving, and ultimately satisfying conclusion. The novel continued to haunt me for days after, particularly concerning the concept of sacrifice, willing or otherwise, and just how far human beings may be prepared to go to survive.

  • First impressions

    Wow. I had read some spoilers and was worried that I wouldn’t find it engaging. It’s now 2:51am as I couldn’t put it down. Atwood delivers again another engaging tale of the inner lives of women who live though the unthinkable. It is a worthy successor to the Handmaids Tale.

  • Lang gewacht en toch gekregen!

    Eindelijk was daar het vervolg op de Handmaid’s Tale. Maar het was het wachten waard: een verhaal dat goed in elkaar steekt en je helemaal meeneemt naar de verstikkende wereld in Gilead. How Lucky we are to be Freek!

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Really enjoyed reading The Testaments. First class writing and a very enjoyable storyline, meant that I couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended and very deserving of awards.
