By the Book: Book Club December 2019 - The Testaments

34 years after the publication of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale - and in a time when its themes are more relevant than ever - the long-awaited sequel, The Testaments, arrived in 2019. It's been one of the most highly anticipated new releases, and also went on to win the Booker Prize. But in this episode of book club, we dive right in and see whether we think it matches the significance of The Handmaid's Tale (and frankly, whether it lives up to the hype).
