Recenzii

An enthrallingly told Cassandra-like prophecy from the ever-inventive Naomi Alderman
The Handmaid's Tale for the Gone Girl generation
A stone cold genius
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
Electrifying! Shocking! Will knock your socks off! Then you'll think twice, about everything
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)
A feminist science-fiction story that's about to make waves
If you enjoy Margaret Atwood's dystopian fiction, this strong, substantial novel is for you
Alderman is a fluent and powerful writer
Thought-provoking novel
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
As awesome as it is compulsive
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
A raw, gutsy slice of speculative dystopia
Like the best science fiction, this dystopian feminist fantasy holds up a mirror to the here and now
A gripping read and a reminder of the true joy of a truly engaging story
Frenetic sci-fi novel
Naomi's super-charged, subversive novel....forcing you to rethink everything
One of my favourite books of 2016 - clever, harrowing and thought-provoking
Electrifying
It's a feminist dystopian page-turner of a thriller and I'm IN LOVE with it
This year's Baileys winner is simultaneously a high-concept thought experiment and a rollercoaster, action packed read
The Power by Naomi Alderman is the feminist flipside to The Handmaid's Tale, asking what happens when women are suddenly the stronger sex
This book sparks with such electric satire that you should read it wearing insulated gloves
The Power is at once as streamlined as a 90-minute action film and as weirdly resonant as one of Atwood's own early fictions
In this fierce and unsettling novel, the ability to generate a dangerous electrical force from their bodies lets women take control, resulting in a vast, systemic upheaval of gender dynamics across the globe
It's a riveting story, told in fittingly electric language, that explores how power corrupts everyone: those new to it and those resisting its loss'
