    Winner of the Booker Prize 2019
    The British Book Awards Audiobook of the Year 2020

    Brought to you by Penguin.

    The Testaments by Margaret Atwood is read by Ann Dowd, Bryce Dallas Howard and Mae Whitman with Derek Jacobi, Tantoo Cardinal and Margaret Atwood.

    Margaret Atwood’s dystopian masterpiece, The Handmaid’s Tale, is a modern classic. Now she brings the iconic story to a dramatic conclusion in this riveting sequel.

    More than 15 years after the events of The Handmaid’s Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.

    Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third voice: a woman who wields power through the ruthless accumulation and deployment of secrets.

    As Atwood unfolds The Testaments, she opens up the innermost workings of Gilead as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.

    ‘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)

    Kritikerstimmen

    "The literary event of the year." (Guardian)

    "A savage and beautiful novel, and it speaks to us today, all around the world, with particular conviction and power.... The bar is set particularly high for Atwood and she soars over it." (Peter Florence, Booker Prize Chair of Judges, Guardian)

    A breathtakingly current sequel

    the novel is astonishingly close in style and structure to the handmaid's tale, considering the two writings are thirty year apart, but uses that familiarity with brilliance to depict a completely different era in that world. the same documentary feel and uniquely female perspective makes for a frighteningly realistic immersion. and the amazing performer have no small part of it so the audio book is well worth getting to experience this. one is left with the uncanny feeling, that not only COULD it happen here (that in itself being a somewhat nebulous description of the western 'civilised' strata, because there are where's in which it IS happening) but maybe that only this imaging as a warning of a possible dystopian future like that is standing between us and going down that path. if so, more literary warning are very much in order. but this is without a doubt a novelistic master class by Margaret Atwood.

    Mindestens genauso gut...

    ...wie “The Handmaid’s Tale“ und eine unheimlich spannende Erzählung mit wirklich exzellenten Sprecherinnen!
    Obwohl es sich ja bei Gilead um einen fiktiven Staat handelt, mutet die Geschichte des Niedergangs sehr authentisch an. Man kann sich als Hörer einer Gänsehaut nicht erwehren, so echt wirken die „Zeugenaussagen“ der Beteiligten.

    Das erste Buch hat mich schon in seinen Bann geschlagen, aber dieses Folgewerk von Margaret Atwood ist fast noch besser - eine absolute Hörempfehlung!
    Hier stimmt einfach alles, die Story, die Sprecher und die Kunst, im Hörer einen Nachklang zu hinterlassen.
    Für mich eines der besten Hörbücher überhaupt.

    The story felt forced in some places

    How many times did Margaret Atwood need to write loose lips sink ships? These wierd one-liners did not feel like Atwood at all.

    The story on a whole was entertaining. BUT...Some of the dialogues were very weak and it became a little annoying towards the end.

    It‘s been a long time I read/ heard such an amazing book. It is even better than the first one of the series. So sad it is already over - I hope there will be another part in the future. Can recommend this book 1000%, we finally get answers what happened.

    Fantastisches Hörerlebnis

    Selten habe ich so gern ein Hörbuch gehört. Die englische Ausgabe brilliert durchbohre fantastischen Sprecherinnen. Die Geschichte verdichtet sich immer mehr, so dass ich zum Schluss nicht mehr aufhören konnte zuzuhören. Die Charaktere entwickeln sich von anfänglichen Stereotypen zu komplexen Figuren. Ein Buch, das ich als Hörbuch uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen kann.

    Mind-blowing

    I really enjoyed the Testaments. after waiting for 35 years I was ready for the sequel of the handmaid's tale. the first person journal entries format is so appropriate for the story. plot, although a little bit foreseeable towards the second half, is satisfying. I was captivated the whole time. I really loved the many, many voices this audiobook used to tell the story.
