    I can sum it up simply this book is not needed I hoped that wouldn t be the case I really really hoped Atwood had something important to add to the world of Gilead with this book, but she honestly doesn t If anything, The Testaments serves only to weaken the power of The Handmaid s Tale.In the past, I have spoken highly of authors who are not afraid to be evil with their books This may give the impression that they are doing something particularly nefarious, but, in fact, it s not so much I can sum it up simply this book is not needed I hoped that wouldn t be the case I really really hoped Atwood had something important to add to the world of Gilead with this book, but she honestly doesn t If anything, The Testaments serves...

    Return to GileadCheck your expectations at the door The Testaments is a highly entertaining page turner, but it is probably quite different from whatever you were anticipating.It differs from its 1985 antecedent, The Handmaid s Tale, in tone, voice and literary heft That earlier book had a power and a gravitas that is not recaptured here For me the most striking thing about The Handmaid s Tale has always been Atwood s choice of narrat...

    I guess I ll have to be the one who says what nobody else is willing to say This novel is terrible I can t decide which work Atwood should be embarrassed forAngel Catbird, Vol 1 or The Testaments The book doesn t read like a novel written by one of the most lauded authors of the 20st century The Testaments reads like a standard issue feminist YA dystopia, filled with every overused dystopian trope and every stereotype, penned by an author who writes for teen audience, and is publish I guess I ll have to be the one who says what nobody else is willing to say This novel is terrible I can t decide which work Atwood should be embarrassed forAngel Catbird, Vol 1 or The Testaments The bo...

    So I just found out about this, Margaret Atwood revealed it via twitter yesterday I even had to create the book data myself on goodreads so I could write this update I really did not see this coming did anyone I m excited and surprised The Handmaid s Tale felt like such a closed book, so it will be real interesting to see where this one goes I wonder if she decided to write this after the success of the television adaptation or the show was made because this book was being written Eit So I just found out about this, Margaret Atwood revealed it via twitter yesterday I even had to create the book data myself on goodreads so I could write this update I really did not see this coming did anyone I m excited and surprised The Handmaid s Tale felt like such a closed book, so it will be real interesting to see where this one goes I w...

    How tedious is a tyranny in the throes of enactment It s always the same plot So why does Margaret Atwood choose to tell the story again That question has haunted me since I heard the announcement of the project almost a year ago WHY I was convinced I would hate the hype and the gushing reviews and the book itself, and started reading with the attitude of someone who knew the story didn t need telling again.To my surprise, I liked it from the start, and soon engaged in the thriller unfold How tedious is a tyranny in the throes of enactment It s always the same plot So why does Margaret Atwood choose to tell the story again That question has haunted me since I heard the announcement of the project almost a year ago WHY I was convinced I would hate the hype and the gushing reviews and the book itself, and started reading with the attitude of someone who knew the story didn t need telling again.To my surprise, I liked it from the start, and soon engaged in the thriller unfolding with a rare reading joy, still wondering why Atwood wasted her precious time on a sequel like this Not much new was added to the dystopian plot of Gilead, I thought But then a shift occurred in my mind.I always saw The Handmaid s Tale as a warning of the slow normalisation of religious fanaticism and of th...

    Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2019This is a flashy, placative, but also intelligent thriller, here to make some points about society and to entertain it s certainly not the most layered or subtle literature ever written, but you know what It s engaging, rather suspenseful and great fun to read, full of quips and commentary on the world we live in, and...

    Shortlisted for the 2019 Booker PrizeYou ll labour over this manuscript of mine, reading and rereading, picking nits as you go I was fortunate enough to attend one of the live cinema screenings of the readings and author QA from the National Theatre on the evening of the book s official publication, managing to complete my first read of the book just as the event started.The event was excellent and I think only reinforced my view that Handmaid s Tale is a great works of fiction Great Shortlisted for the 2019 Booker PrizeYou ll labour ov...

    The Testaments opens in Gilead about 15 years after The Handmaid s Tale, but it s an entirely different novel in form and tone Inevitably, the details are less shocking at least in part because the horrors of Gilead s male centered theocracy are already so well known When Offred first told her sad and mutilated story, we were hearing about the hangings, the Unbabies and the Sons of Jacob for the first time But by now, Gi...
