    Return to GileadCheck your expectations at the door The Testaments is a highly entertaining page turner, but it is 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 a power and a gravitas that is not recaptured here For me the most striking thing about The Handmaid s Tale has always been Atwood s choice of narrator Offred in the book she has no other name is so confin Return to GileadCheck your expectations at the door The Testaments is a highly entertaining page turner, but it is 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 a power and a gravitas that is not recaptured here For me the most striking thing about The Handmaid s Tale has always been Atwood s choice of narrator Offred in the book she has no other name is so confined by her circumstances her isolation is claustrophobic She is essentially passive, keeping her head dow...
