Description

En esta brillante secuela de El cuento de la criada, la aclamada autora Margaret Atwood responde a las preguntas que han cautivado a los lectores durante décadas.

Novela ganadora del Man Booker Prize 2019

Subo y penetro en la oscuridad del interior; o en la luz.»

Cuando las puertas de la furgoneta se cerraron de golpe tras Offred al final de El cuento de la criada, los lectores no tenían forma de saber cuál iba a ser su futuro: la libertad, la prisión o la muerte.
Con la publicación de Los testamentos, la espera ha terminado.

Margaret Atwood recupera la historia quince años después de que Offred se adentrara en lo desconocido, con los testimonios asombrosos de tres narradoras del mundo de Gilead.

«Queridos lectores y lectoras: vuestras preguntas sobre Gilead y su funcionamiento interno han sido la fuente de inspiración de este libro. ¡Bueno, casi todo! La otra es el mundo en el que vivimos.»- Margaret Atwood

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE
The Testaments is a modern masterpiece, a powerful novel that can be read on its own or as a companion to Margaret Atwood’s classic, The Handmaid’s Tale.

More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid's Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.
 
Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third: Aunt Lydia.  Her complex past and uncertain future unfold in surprising and pivotal ways.
 
With The Testaments, Margaret Atwood opens up the innermost workings of Gilead, as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.
