The Testaments Read Þ 108 Margaret Atwood í 8 Read Free read ò eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF í Margaret Atwood An alternate cover edition of ISBN 978 0385543781 can be found hereWhen 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 deathWith The Testaments the wait is over. I guess I ll have to be the one who says what nobody else is willing to say This novel is terrible and Booker judges are starstruck hype driven sellouts And that no professional literary critic has the guts to tell the truth about how poorly conceived and written The Testaments is is a true shame I can t decide which work Atwood should be embarrassed for Angel Catbird Vol 1 or The Testaments The book doesn t read like a novel written by one of the most lauded authors of the 20st century The Testaments reads like a standard issue feminist YA dystopia filled with every overused dystopian trope and every stereotype penned by an author who writes for teen audience and is published by Harper Teen As such it undoubtedly has some appeal to a part of Atwood s readership but literary merit The Testaments has none If this book had a different name on it I would have DNFed it after 50 pages for its lack of originality predictability and mediocre writing style I ve read a fair number of similar novels I am not opposed to them I enjoyed some of them and some of them for example the upcoming The Grace Year held my attention much better As an Atwood novel The Testaments gets one disappointed angry heart broken star from me Why did the publishers embargo Atwood s new creation I wonder Surely there is nothing to spoil Maybe to conceal its poor execution or its transparent shallow simplistic and ridiculous plot The story is told from 3 POVs Aunt Lydia s and two teen girls one growing up in Gilead and another in Canada Oh my who those girls might be Twist You can only glimpse Atwood s former brilliance in Aunt Lydia s POV but just for a few moments here and there If the whole novel was written about Aunt Lydia maybe Atwood would have made her journey convincing but alas The other two girls are uintessential YA dystopian heroines one abused by an evil oppressive regime and the other a bratty teen on the run from bad people but who nevertheless has time for some romance Yum Like I said these POVs are so similar to what s been regurgitated over and over in teen publishing it s uncanny Has The Testaments been partially ghost written by Lauren Oliver I am not trying to dump on Oliver she has her fans and her place in the industry but I expected something infinitely sophisticated from Margaret AtwoodThe new information about Gilead Atwood promised Well new details of Gilead made the regime nonsensical and less plausible than ever before Who benefits from living in Gilead becomes unfathomable in this book thus making the entire concept pointless kind of like in Wither Totalitarian regimes work at least temporarily because they are supported by a mass of true believers Where are they in this book But if you yearn for some torture porn in addition to that supplied by the 3 seasons of the TV show then sure Rapists molesters killers suicide victims galore plus solitary confinement there is an overabundance of that All of it written bluntly rashly exploitatively and without any kind of nuance There is no overarching theme in The Testaments except GILEAD IS BAD The plot to overthrow it is a joke If you are looking for a clever thoughtful well written companion to The Handmaid s Tale you are out of luck If you want a bland basic TV show fanfic stuffed with action adventure and genre tropes enjoy The Testaments was written just for you
