The Testaments - Margaret Atwood

The Testaments - Margaret Atwood

At this point I have written two different reviews for this book and I just can't summon the energy to start over yet again.

 

The Handmaid's Tale is amazing and horrifying, even as a reread after thirty years.

 

The Testaments is also amazing and horrifying, but where the first was a cautionary tale the second is the product of a different perspective. There is agency and volition about some of the ways women of different ages, classes, and circumstances can find to rebel against an oppressive regime.

 

The Testaments is a rallying cry, and really, just what I needed this year.
