Product description

Review

"The Hunger Games crossed with The Handmaid's Tale."
--Cosmopolitan

"The Power is a subtly funny, lyrical and utterly subversive vision of an impossible future. As all the best visionaries do, Alderman shines a penetrating and yet merciful light on to our present and the so many cruelties in which we may be complicit."--A.L. Kennedy


"When we say that The Power is profoundly disturbing and you may well want to argue with it as you read, we mean that in a good way."
--SFX, Five Stars


"Please, please, PLEASE read Naomi Alderman's The Power. It'll crack your brain open in all the right ways. Such an important, timely book."
--Literary Death Match


"A page-turning thriller and timely exploration of gender roles, censorship and repressive political regimes, The Power is a must-read for today's times."--Lauren Bufferd, BookPage

"Alderman's storytelling is visceral and brave; you'll stay up all night reading after a thousand deals with the clock that you'll put it down after just a few more pages. Gleeful, intelligent, clever, and unflinching, The Power is the kind of book to keep a person going."--Fiona Zublin, Ozy

"Narratively complex, philosophically searching, and gorgeously rendered."--Lisa Shea, Elle

"Richly imagined, ambitious, and propulsively written."--Sophie Gilbert, The Atlantic

"I was riveted by every page. Alderman's prose is immersive and, well, electric, and I felt a closed circuit humming between the book and me as I read."--Amal El-Mohtar, New York Times Book Review

"Alderman's tilted dystopia is a smartly layered place of slippery slopes and moral ambiguities, a fitting folktale for strange times."--Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
