Hai fra le mani un’arma pericolosa, caricata con i segreti di tre donne di Gilead. Stanno rischiando la vita per te. Per tutti noi.
Prima di entrare nel loro mondo, forse vorrai armarti anche di questi pensieri:

I guess I'll have to be the one who says what nobody else is willing to say. This novel is terrible, and Booker judges are starstruck, hype-driven sellouts. And that no professional literary critic has the guts to tell the truth about how poorly conceived and written The Testaments is, is a true sha Leggi tutto
I can sum it up simply: this book is not needed. I hoped that wouldn't be the case. I really really hoped Atwood had something important to add to the world of Gilead with this book, but she honestly doesn't. If anything, The Testaments serves only to weaken the power of The Handmaid's Tale . In the p Leggi tutto
Return to Gilead Check your expectations at the door: The Testaments is a highly entertaining page turner, but it is also probably quite different from whatever you were anticipating. It differs from its 1985 antecedent, The Handmaid's Tale , in tone, voice and literary heft. That earlier book had
Winner of best fiction category but it’s not my winner. That’s my opinion and I respect fans’ opinions 😣😣 Two stars for the love of Aunt Lydia! If she wasn’t in this book, I could do something first by giving minus five stars to a book! See how I disliked and how I felt frustrated about this hope st Leggi tutto
I haven't even finished season 2 of the tv show since it was so emotionally draining but here I am reading this!!
A review in 5 words: Unnecessary. Pointless. Ruining. Bland. Spoilers.
This was my most anticipated book for 2019. Wait... I should amend that statement... THIS WAS THE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF MY MISERABLE FRIGGIN LIFE! And much like my life, it was an epic disappointment. The Handmaid's Tale is on my Top 10 shelf. It is, in my opinion, the greatest dystopian novel of all Leggi tutto
It's not easy being the most anticipated book of the year. I would argue that most of the negative reactions - including my own - are based largely on expectations. Since published in 1985, The Handmaid's Tale has become sacred ground in the literary world; a true modern classic further amplified by Leggi tutto
"How tedious is a tyranny in the throes of enactment. It's always the same plot." So why does Margaret Atwood choose to tell the story again? That question has haunted me since I heard the announcement of the project almost a year ago. WHY? I was convinced I would hate the hype and the gushing revie Leggi tutto
3.4 /5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️ “You don’t believe the sky is falling until a chunk of it falls on you.” I'm very conflicted. I don't know if this book tricked me into liking it or if I actually do or don't. Because when I think about the characters and the plot a little more, I find problems. I'm very confused th Leggi tutto
