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)

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)

As awesome as it is compulsive (Heat, 5 stars)

What starts out as a fantasy of female empowerment deepens and darkens into an interrogation of power itself, its uses and abuses and what it does to the people who have it (Guardian)

A raw, gutsy slice of speculative dystopia (Metro)

Like the best science fiction, this dystopian feminist fantasy holds up a mirror to the here and now (Mail on Sunday)

A gripping read and a reminder of the true joy of a truly engaging story (Stylist)

Frenetic sci-fi novel (Daily Mail)

Naomi's super-charged, subversive novel....forcing you to rethink everything (Psychologies)

Gripping and disturbing, it pushes the reader - even the confidently feminist reader - to question the assumptions underlying many of the mechanisms that drive relationships between women and men (Harper's Bazaar)

An instant classic of speculative fiction... a big, brash, page-turning, drug-running, globe-trotting thriller... endlessly nuanced and thought-provoking, combining elegantly efficient prose with beautiful meditations on the metaphysics of power, possibility and change (Guardian)

Sci-fi with a feminist twist (Jewish Chronicle)

it is so whipsmart, it is so brilliant, I absolutely loved it, it's going to stay right in the science fiction canon forever...you know it will end up on TV (Rowan Pelling)

Very smart, very crisply written (Christopher Frayling)

Insightful, thrilling, funny and well-written.. Alderman's book is in the tradition of Ursula le Guin, Margaret Atwood, Sheri Tepper and Joanna Russ (Daily Telegraph)

A thrilling narrative stuffed with provocative scenarios and thought experiments. The Power is a blast. (Financial Times)

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