Product description

Review

It's magnificent. I'm agog. Really, I'm several gogs. So smart and scary and sad but true (Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

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

A stone cold genius (Sarah Perry)

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)

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

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)

One of my favourite books of 2016 - clever, harrowing and thought-provoking (Paula Hawkins, best-selling author of The Girl on the Train)

Electrifying (Margaret Atwood)

It's a feminist dystopian page-turner of a thriller and I'm IN LOVE with it (Marian Keyes)

This year's Baileys winner is simultaneously a high-concept thought experiment and a rollercoaster, action packed read (Guardian)

The Power by Naomi Alderman is the feminist flipside to The Handmaid's Tale, asking what happens when women are suddenly the stronger sex (Evening Standard)

An enthrallingly told Cassandra-like prophecy from the ever-inventive Naomi Alderman (Observer)

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) --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
