Brilliant... couldnt stop listening and now I cant wait to see it on TV!
a great read
i was so excited when i saw the persons narrating but it was painful to listen to and i just bought the book in paperback and read it. Margaret Atwood never fails to impress. the narrators didn't do her literary work justice, IMO.
Wonderfully written. I could not stop listening. I respected the power of women shown in this book as written from the female perspective. The narrators were pleasing to listen to.
Thrilled that this sequel was written!! It’s nice to know what happened after June fled down the stairs at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale. I’ve watched all seasons of the TV series and cross my fingers that they adopt this book’s concept into their story line as it is definitely turning into a snore fest!
So of course it's a great book, Atwood is a tremendous writer. A
lthough, this particular book seems to try to absolve Aunt Lydia, which I think denies her character the rich complexities that make her so interesting.
Great follow up to Handmaid’s Tale! Cadence was good, narration and tone brought me into the story. Margaret Atwood hit this one out of the park, and left enough unanswered allow for another sequel!
Meh. It’s ok. It’s no bandmaids tale or alias grace.
I listened to it twice, back to back, because you miss things. There are a lot of details that tie the story together. Loved it, as I'd loved it's predecessor.
