The Testaments
The Testaments By Atwood, Margaret Book - 2019 | Hardcover edition

Written in 2019, the long overdue sequel to *The Handmaid's Tale* sadly reads like one of those bland and boring teenage feminist young adult dystopia novels. The writing isn't terrible; however, the elder Atwood, now into her eighties, painfully struggles to capture a modern teenage girl's point of view. Where *The Handmaid's Tale* is skillful and subtle, *The Testaments* is blunt and derivative. Is this a bad book? Not at all! Still, it doesn't read like a worthy successor to the excellent *The Handmaid's Tale.*
