Product description

Review

The Hunger Games crossed with The Handmaid's Tale (Cosmopolitan)

Electrifying! Shocking! Will knock your socks off! Then you'll think twice, about everything (Margaret Atwood)

The Handmaid's Tale for the Gone Girl generation (Grazia)

A stone cold genius (Sarah Perry)

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)

The Power is a fascinating look at what the world might be like if millennia of sexism went the other way...as a whole the narrative feels ingenious...deserves to be read by every woman (and, for that matter, every man) (The Times)

A feminist science-fiction story that's about to make waves (Red)

If you enjoy Margaret Atwood's dystopian fiction, this strong, substantial novel is for you (Woman & Home)

Alderman is a fluent and powerful writer (Sunday Times)

Thought-provoking novel (Glamour)

Review

'The Hunger Games crossed with The Handmaid's Tale.' (Cosmopolitan)

'The Power is a fascinating look at what the world might be like if millennia of sexism went the other way...as a whole the narrative feels ingenious...deserves to be read by every woman (and, for that matter, every man).' (The Times)

'A brash sci-fi fantasy, clever and coarse, calculated and hectic.' (The Observer)
