Description of this Book

In this brilliant sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, acclaimed author Margaret Atwood answers the question that has tantalized readers for decades: What happens to Offred? When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her--freedom, prison or death. With The Testaments, the wait is over. Margaret Atwood's sequel picks up the story fifteen years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead. Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in. --Margaret Atwood

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review One of the most anticipated sequels of the modern age . . . full of revealing backstories. --Ron Charles, The Washington Post A chilling invitation no Atwood fan can resist . . . The Testaments reminds us of the power of truth in the face of evil. --People A fast, immersive narrative that's as propulsive as it is melodramatic. --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times The women of Gilead are more fascinating than ever. --NPR There may be no novelist better suited to tapping the current era's anxieties than Margaret Atwood. --Entertainment Weekly A rare treat . . . a corker of a plot, culminating in a breathless flight to freedom. --Laura Miller, Slate.com
