"Alderman's writing is beautiful, and her intelligence seems almost limitless. She also has a pitch-dark sense of humor that she wields perfectly." --Michael Schaub, NPR
All over the world women and girls are discovering they have the power. With a flick of the fingers they can inflict terrible pain, and even death. And with this small twist of nature, everything changes drastically.

Ambitious and provocative, visceral and page-turning, award-winning author Naomi Alderman's THE POWER at once takes us on a journey to an alternate reality and exposes our own world in bold and surprising ways.

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

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

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

"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

"A searing critique of how power is used in a world in which a long-oppressed class can suddenly fight back."--Renay Williams, Barnes & Noble Blog

Book Description:

When you wield the power, how long will it be before the power wields you?
