Description

The testaments  an amazing work by Margaret Eleanor Atwood that won my Booker Prize in 2019.

The sequel to Nadima’s biography is written and tells the story of a woman named Aunt Lydia, a senior official in the government of Gilead, whose job is to regulate women’s affairs.

It has been about 35 years since the writing of the popular novel “The Story of Nadima”.

Again, this world and its repressive rulers encouraged Margaret Eleanor Atwood to write a novel as a sequel to Nadima;

Because, according to this famous Canadian novelist, the world today is also an oppressive world.
In The Testaments, not only do we not distance ourselves from the Republic of Gilead, but we are moving towards it.

The story of this book begins fifteen years after the last events of the novel The Story of Nadima (The Handmaid’s Tale) and in fact long after the latest events and events shown in the third season of the series “The Story of Nadima”.

By reading the novel of Nadimeh’s story, many questions are formed in the mind; How did these events happen and begin?

Now, after many years, Margaret Eleanor Atwood has answered these questions by writing a book entitled “Testaments”, which is in fact a continuation of Nadima’s biography.
After the publication of this novel in 2019, it quickly sold millions of copies and became one of the best-selling books in the world.

The novel was also shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize the same year and won this prestigious award.

The book of testaments is quoted from three narrators.

The part that goes back to the events before the formation of the Gilead government and the events of the previous book is told by Aunt Lydia, who was the coach and deputy director of women, and in this part she talks about how she gave up her beliefs about democracy and freedom and became an eager servant. He speaks for the government of Gilead.

Fifteen years have passed since the story of Nadimeh and the rest of the story is told by two teenage girls named Agnes and Nicole.

The girls who grew up during the reign of Gilead and the woman who was one of the servants of this government are all three narrators of the events and happenings of the government of Gilead and seek to expose documents against this government.

Part of the text of the book of wills
It was said that what my father was doing was very important, because of the important work that men did, according to Aunt Vidal, who taught us the basics of religion, women were not allowed to interfere because they had smaller brains that They could not think of great thoughts.

“It’s like he wants to teach a cat to crochet, and the thought of it makes us laugh, how ridiculous it really is,” said Aunt Este. Cats do not even have a finger!

It was that men had something on their heads that looked like fingers, the kind of fingers that girls did not have. Aunt Vidal said that she explained everything well and there was no question for us.
He closed his mouth and ate his word. I knew there were other explanations, because even then, cats’ minds did not seem right. Cats do not like crocheting and do not want to do it. And we are not cats.

Prohibited issues are free in the imagination. But control your mind. Aunt Vidal said it was out of curiosity that the man ate the forbidden apple and got into trouble. It was better to be unaware of some things.

Do not be curious about yourself as well, otherwise you will get yourself in trouble.

So we wrapped Nadima dolls in foil. Tabita said that I could later give her to another little girl who did not have such a lovely doll house and could use Nadima dolls.
