WINNER OF THE 2017 BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION
ONE OF BARACK OBAMA'S BEST BOOKS OF 2017

'Electrifying' Margaret Atwood

'A big, page-turning, thought-provoking thriller' Guardian

All over the world women are discovering they have the power.
With a flick of the fingers they can inflict terrible pain - even death.
Suddenly, every man on the planet finds they've lost control.

The Day of the Girls has arrived - but where will it end?

'The Hunger Games crossed with The Handmaid's Tale' Cosmopolitan

'I loved it; it was visceral, provocative and curiously pertinent . . . The story has stayed with me since' Stylist, the decade's 15 best books by remarkable women

'Superb. Insightful, thrilling, funny. Well-crafted, compelling, serious-minded' Daily Telegraph

'Fascinating, ingenious, rattles with a furious pace. Deserves to be read by every woman (and, for that matter, every man)' The Times

'Irresistible. Holds a mirror up to the here and now' Mail on Sunday

'Chilling, thrilling, a blast' Financial Times

'A shocking, thrill-a-minute story' Observer

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)

Book Description:

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