And so I step up, into the darkness within; or else the light. 

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 15 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

A worthy sequel

Unequivocally, a must-read if you enjoyed The Handmaid's Tale. Margaret Atwood wrote this sequel separately from the hit TV series spawned by the first book. So, don't expect to just pick up on Offred's story. However, I appreciate this as it almost creates a stand-alone "world" in the books themselves. While the new characters we're introduced to aren't as nuanced as those we met in The Handmaid's Tale, the reader is drawn into their fates. The underlying societal commentary isn't as sharp as The Handmaid's Tale, but the themes continue to flow through. In my view, it's the plot that draws you in on this one ... and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Much-anticipated sequel

Sequels will usually not be as good as their predecessors, hence just 3 stars. But if you're a die-hard Atwood fan, you can't miss this one.
