The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

The Testaments, by Margaret Atwood is the sequel to The Handmaids Tale. I did not know this addition, which was published recently, even existed till Audible started pushing it towards me because I had listened to The Handmaids Tale. Much like with the first book, I listened to the sequel in audiobook format. Which I am pleased I did. It took me longer than usual as I have been doing a lot of physical reading lately so I only listen to audiobooks while I drive or clean. But this book was certainly quiet good.

Unlike the first novel, which covers the view of the Handmaid followed by scholarly discussions on a country that has seen the last of its days, The Testaments follows the paths of multiple characters as they work towards the getting information that can change the land they are trapped in, or sometimes call home.

It was interesting to hear about how things progressed in this land, and how certain characters from the first book changed.

I strongly suggest picking up The Testaments if you enjoyed The Handmaid’s Tale.
