"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.

"The Hunger Games crossed with The Handmaid's Tale."
"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
When you wield the power, how long will it be before the power wields you?
