Audio Book Summary



The Testaments is a modern masterpiece, a powerful novel that can be read on its own or as a companion to Margaret Atwood’s classic, The Handmaid’s Tale.

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 radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.
Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third: Aunt Lydia.  Her complex past and uncertain future unfold in surprising and pivotal ways.
With The Testaments, Margaret Atwood 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 believes.

    Enjoyed the book and series Handmaids tale so this was a fun continuation. Narrators were excellent. Only one star lost as the ending was a bit silly.

    Wonderful story. It was very moving. The narration was very well done. I was so immersed in the story from beginning to end.

    I thought the story line was not creative. The writing was tedious and unimaginative. Many of the voices on the audio were dull and difficult to listen to. All in all this was a huge disappointment. Because of the popularity of the handsmaid tale, I’m sure this will make a lot of money (which may account for the reason it was written without much effort to write a thoughtful, imaginative story) but I doubt it will win any awards. I read a lot. This is the first time ever that I felt a need to vent a negative critique.
