    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
  • "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"
