"for my money, the single most exciting publishing event of the year"
The Bookseller
"Atwood’s sheer assurance as a storyteller makes for a fast, immersive narrative that’s as propulsive as it is melodramatic"
The New York Times
"Atwood’s task in returning to the world of her best-known work was a big one, but the result is a success that more than justifies her Booker prize shortlisting"
The Guardian
"It’s fun to read. It’s beautifully written. But it feels less honest than The Handmaid’s Tale did"
Vox
"The Testaments is fun to read in a way that The Handmaid’s Tale is not, fun in the same way that the TV series, for all its grim lighting and performances, is crowd-pleasing."
Slate
"Atwood has given us a blockbuster of propulsive, almost breathless narrative, stacked with twists and turns worthy of a Gothic novel"
The Daily Telegraph
"as a reading experience it’s also surprisingly fun, with its plucky young heroines and juicy (if predictable) plot twists"
The Independent
""

"This sequel to the Handmaid’s Tale is a rattling yarn even though it does not live up to the original"
The Times
"Atwood’s prose is as powerful as ever, tense and spare. She invests certain phrases with ironic fury"
BBC Online
