Margaret Atwood s powers are on full display . . . Everyone should read The Testaments.
Los Angeles Times
A fast, immersive narrative that s as propulsive as it is melodramatic.
Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
The Testaments is worthy of the literary classic it continues. That s thanks in part to Atwood s capacity to surprise, even writing in a universe we think we know so well.
The women of Gilead are more fascinating than ever.
There may be no novelist better suited to tapping the current era s anxieties than Margaret Atwood.
Powerful, revealing, and engaging.
A rare treat . . . a corker of a plot, culminating in a breathless flight to freedom.
