Testaments | Margaret Atwood
post image

I read 14 pages. Nope! I won‘t be staying up late to read this no matter how good it is. And it is really good. #thetestaments #margaretatwood

marleed Did you DNF? Or do you just need other things in your head as you nod off to sleep? 2w
Violetsunrise84 @marleed What does DNF mean? 2w
marleed Did not finish - basically bailed. 2w

Violetsunrise84 @marleed No, I literally stopped because I knew that if I continued on then I would stay up all night reading. 2w
marleed Boy, I get that. I carried this book everywhere the day I received it so I could read every chance I had. I just had to see how Ms Atwood resolved her story. I loved reading perspectives in addition to the handmade. 2w
Violetsunrise84 @marleed I bought this and Stephen kings the Institute on the same day. I decided to read Stephen King first and then read the testaments. As much as I like that book, I regretted that decision because I really want to read the testaments. So far my favorite narrative comes from the woman that grew up during the Gilead era. 2w

Oryx and Crake | Margaret Atwood

I got to meet her! Y‘all, I am so excited I may not sleep a wink tonight! She was so funny! And smart, and mischievous, and everything you‘d think. #MargaretAtwood! She was invited by the Genetics Engineering and Society department at NC State, so there was much discussion of the Madd Addam trilogy, especially Oryx and Crake. @barbwire

OriginalCyn620 I haven‘t read this. Are you enjoying it? Short story collections are very hit-or-miss for me! 1mo
Lcsmcat I loved it. Like most collections some stories worked better for me than others, but they were all thought provoking and well written. 1mo

As with most short story collections, some stories resonated more than others. But the opening and closing stories were excellent, as were many of the others. Themes of dislocation and the misunderstandings between people of good intentions, especially between men and women. (Of course, it‘s Atwood, right?)

Emilymdxn I always love her short stories so much! Haven‘t read this collection yet but I want to 1mo
Lcsmcat @Emilymdxn This one is from 1977. I understand that the first edition has a story that was since removed from the collection, so I may have to go hunting. 😀 1mo
ReadingOver50 Oh that cover 😍 1mo
