The Testaments

characters î The Testaments 105 Margaret Atwood » 5 Free read R through the ruthless accumulation and deployment of secretsAs 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 believe. It s not easy being the most anticipated book of the year I would argue that most of the negative reactions including my own are based largely on expectations Since published in 1985 The Handmaid s Tale has become sacred ground in the literary world a true modern classic further amplified by the successful show and current political tensions Stakes for a seuel couldn t be higher and even for the ever talented Margaret Atwood that s a tough performance to deliver All in all this is a well written adventure story that expands the world building hinted at and alluded to by the original But it s also boring mostly unsurprising and generally feels like a cash in opportunityMore specifically I was turned off by all the young characters About 67% of the book is narrated by youth Their lack of maturity creates a Middle Grade narrative voice that is jarring and undesired Not necessarily unrealistic just annoying Their kiddish thoughts go on for pages and pages when a few brief lines would have sufficed to assure us these characters are indeed children Another downer is how many uestions this book doesn t answer The original ended with such a dramatic cliffhanger but the unresolved threads there remain largely unresolved here I won t say which ones to keep this spoiler free but it s important to read this book with appropriate expectations than what was set up by the publisher You won t get all of your burning uestions answered Probably not any of themAs for its positive attributes the few sections narrated by Aunt Lydia are truly spectacular Aunt Lydia has always been a captivating villain and pulling back the curtain on her thoughts is endlessly intriguing Listeners of the audiobook are in for an additional treat since they brought in Ann Dowd from the show to reprise her role for the readingAgain all in all this is a decent yarn It s not going to be a classic but it s an okay pop novel I knew pretty much from the first chapter that it wasn t going to deliver everything I desired for a seuel and by a uarter of the way in it was pretty clear what the ending surprise would be but it still moved at a good pace and kept me moderately in suspense For Handmaid s Tale fans as long as you lower your expectations there s no reason why you can t find enjoyment in these further adventures of Gilead

characters î The Testaments 105 Margaret Atwood » 5 Free read 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 ra. 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 TaleIn 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 something they do but everything they don t It s an act of self restraint to not say everything to leave some things unanswered some happy endings unexplored That I feel is one of the greatest strengths of The Handmaid s TaleBecause there is so much we don t know can t know Everything we experience comes from Offred s narrow world view Everything Offred doesn t know we don t know The ending too is famously ambiguous And these are extremely powerful tools What we don t know is powerful Ambiguity is powerful Knowing when to finish is powerful As Aunt Lydia notes herself in this very book Where there is emptiness the mind will obligingly fill it up Fear is always at hand to supply any vacancies as is curiosity The Handmaid s Tale forces us to wonder to imagine to fear the worst and hope for the best The Testaments not so much What this book does is remove the ambiguity It provides answers to thirty five year old mysteries that were best left unanswered I am reminded somewhat comically of Jojo Moyes inability to let go of her Me Before You characters repeatedly opening up the story after leaving it on an emotional high Not every ooh I wonder what the characters did next should be answered Sometimes not knowing is so much effective And that s Moyes I didn t expect Atwood to indulge in this sentimentality The Handmaid s Tale uses one limited perspective to make us think The Testaments uses three perspectives and an epilogue in the future to colour in all the corners leaving nothing to the imagination I gave this book two stars for Aunt Lydia s perspective Without her contribution I am honestly not sure I would have pushed through the second half of the book The rest of the book is told from the perspective of two teenage girls one living in Canada and the other in Gilead and the twists regarding them are so glaringly obvious that it is actually a bit embarrassing to read the scenes with the dramatic reveals chapter cliffhanger obviously The whole infiltration by the resistance thing was straight out of every other dime a dozen dystopiaI had so hoped this was going to do something new and important I hoped it was going to impart a new message perhaps relevant to modern times I hoped it was going to be smart and thought provoking I am disappointed Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
