THE NUMBER 1 BESTSELLER AND WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE

'The Testaments is Atwood at her best . . . To read this book is to feel the world turning' Anne Enright

The Republic of Gilead is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, two girls with radically different experiences of the regime come face to face with the legendary, ruthless Aunt Lydia. But how far will each go for what she believes?

Now with additional material: book club discussion points and an interview with Margaret Atwood about the real-life events that inspired The Testaments and The Handmaid's Tale.

PRAISE FOR THE TESTAMENTS:

'Everything The Handmaid's Tale fans wanted and more. Prepare to hold your breath throughout, and to cry real tears at the end' Stylist

'Atwood challenges us constantly and poses the question that lies like a pearl inside the shell of this frighteningly readable novel, "Before you sit in judgement, how would you behave in Gilead?''' Sunday Telegraph

'She manages to write about the darkest and most terrifying parts of human psychology in a way that is still deeply funny and full of dark strange hope' Naomi Alderman, author of The Power

'A plump, pacy, witty and tightly plotted page-turner... Atwood is on top form' Observer

'She is one of the greatest writers of the past century' Sunday Times

'How did she manage to make darkness feel so effortless? How did she think to inject humour where no humour should exist? Because she's Margaret Atwood, and she can do anything' Ann Patchett, author of The Dutch House



Thrilling and blistering
Daily Telegraph

An incredible follow-up
the Sun, *Pick of the Week*

Gripping, pacy and beautifully written
Justine Jordan, Guardian

Finding hope in a hopeless place, this is everything The Handmaid’s Tale fans wanted and more. Prepare to hold your breath throughout, and to cry real tears at the end. My book of the year
Kayleigh Dray, Stylist

The Testaments is Atwood at her best, in its mixture of generosity, insight and control. The prose is adroit, direct, beautifully turned. All over the reading world, the history books are being opened to the next blank page and Atwood’s name is written at the top of it. To read this book is to feel the world turning
Anne Enright, Guardian

I gobbled it down... Atwood has an incredible intellectual nimbleness that challenges us constantly and poses the question that lies like a pearl inside the shell of this frighteningly readable novel, "Before you sit in judgement, how would you behave in Gilead?"
Allison Pearson, Sunday Telegraph

No one needs another recommendation for The Testaments and still I have to say how thrilling it is when a book manages to exceed all expectations. How did she manage to make darkness feel so effortless? How did she think to inject humour where no humour should exist? Because she’s Margaret Atwood, and she can do anything
Ann Patchett

A cracker: urgent, moving and as tense as any thriller... there's a darkly rebellious humour, ingenious wordplay and, of course, chillingly timely warnings. Atwood is long overdue a Nobel
Hepzibah Anderson, Mail on Sunday

At its heart, this gripping novel is a rallying call for action... In Atwood's world, resistance is never futile
Mernie Gilmore, Daily Express

The must-read novel of the year -- a perfect gift for bookworms and fans of the TV series
Sunday Telegraph
