  • The Handmaid's Tale

    Published in 1985

    Testaments

    The brilliant sequel published three decades later

    Who else has read these ?

    What are your thoughts ?

    The good / the bad ?

    Personally, I find The Handmaid's Tale to be the better book of the two. However, that is not to say that Testaments is a bad book. The Handmaid's Tale simply s***ed me in like a book hasn't done in years. It brought back the feeling of actually being excited to read, something I last felt reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy almost 10 years ago. It is just that riveting. Atwood's writing made the pages fly by and never left me bored or disinterested in what I was reading.

  • Wild how the first one was published in 1985 and still holds up
    Still haven't read testaments

    First one holds up so well, reading it you have no way of telling it was released so long ago.

    Testaments is neat in how it connects the stories but it’s not quite everything the original is

    Haven't read testaments, but it seems unnecessary IMO. Will have to peep to make sure tho

  • Show is good

    Until season 3. Then it drags. Season 1 was genuinely terrifying though

    That's great. Have you checked out Pet sematary by King ? It is nuts

  • handmaid's tale is very good, haven't read testaments

  • Testaments gave me YA vibes but it's still very readable. Handmaid's Tale is a masterpiece
