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)

From the Inside Flap

'She throws her head back and pushes her chest forward and lets go a huge blast right into the centre of his body. The rivulets and streams of red scarring run across his chest and up around his throat. She'd put her hand on his heart and stopped him dead.'

Suddenly - tomorrow or the day after - girls find that with a flick of their fingers, they can inflict agonizing pain and even death. With this single twist, the four lives at the heart of Naomi Alderman's extraordinary, visceral novel are utterly transformed, and we look at the world in an entirely new light.

What if the power to hurt were in women's hands?
