Summary

Die packende Fortsetzung von Margaret Atwoods "Der Report der Magd".

"Und so steige ich hinauf, in die Dunkelheit dort drinnen oder ins Licht." - Als am Ende vom Report der Magd die Tür des Lieferwagens und damit auch die Tür von Desfreds "Report" zuschlug, blieb ihr Schicksal für die Leser und Hörer ungewiss. Was erwartete sie: Freiheit? Gefängnis? Der Tod? Das Warten hat ein Ende! Mit Die Zeuginnen nimmt Margaret Atwood den Faden der Erzählung fünfzehn Jahre später wieder auf, in Form dreier explosiver Zeugenaussagen von drei Erzählerinnen aus dem totalitären Schreckensstaat Gilead.

Margaret Atwood haben vor allem zwei Dinge zu diesem Roman inspiriert: Die Fragen ihres Publikums zum Staat Gilead samt seiner Beschaffenheit sowie die Welt, in der wir leben.

Atwood does not disappoint!

I listened to Claire Danes narrate the handmaid‘s tale two or three years ago. Then watched the entirety of the Hulu series. I was fuming mad when I saw the first couple of episodes of the Hulu series, until I realized after some research that Margaret Atwood had actually had a hand in the creation.

Knowing that, is much easier for me to finish out the entire series which I feel like does the Handmaids ‘s tale plenty of justice.

The Testaments is written in a way that can pick up after the handmaid‘s tale and after the Hulu series so not too many discrepancies are found between Versions. The reader, listener, and viewer in this case will have to allow for a certain amount of liberty between multiple artists.

Margaret Atwood is a treasure. It is hard to put into ample words how grateful I am to live alongside someone of that caliber; her creativity and intelligence is astounding. There’s always a little apprehension when you read a sequel of a book that you loved, because what if it doesn’t measure up? About five minutes in to this I was left with little doubt.

While I’m hoping that Atwood has left herself enough room and energy to revisit what happens between the handmaid’s tale and the testament, the testament in and of itself is absolute perfection.
