I decided to read The Testaments: The Sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood📚 after not being sure to read a book which looked for me like an unneeded sequel after the TV show. But I’m happy that I did read it because my fears did not come true. And you do not have to read the original book to enjoy this book.
This book is a page-turner, from the first moment you get sucked into the world and the protagonists. I especially liked the plotlines from Aunt Lydia and “Nicole.” These give a lot of context to the world at large - something I was missing in the first book.
I’ve liked this book a bit better than the Handmaid tale. Somehow I was feeling less lost in the story and timelines. But there where the scene’s where I was feeling quite hopeless about the decisions the characters did make. You continuously think you should not do this and fight back, but in real life, I think I would also go with the “easy” path.
