Staff Reviews


Stunning. Pun intended. Alderman has woven a narrative that creeps eerily over the history of a radically changed society. As women all across the world come suddenly, and tumultuously, into the ability to disperse a volatile charge unto captors, offenders, lovers, and victims alike, the fundamental schema of society is irrevocable altered. Through the lens of warriors and watchers experiencing and shaping the upheaval first hand, Alderman holds a mirror up to the influence of power of any kind, for better or worse. With writing as compelling and electric as it's characters, The Power is a must read, equal parts far away and unfathomable, and provocatively, astonishingly present. 

— Sam, Tattered Cover

In this stunning bestseller that inspired the Amazon Prime series, praised as "our era's Handmaid's Tale," a fierce new power has emerged--and only women have it (Washington Post).

In The Power, the world is a recognizable place: there's a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool; a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature; an ambitious American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family.

But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power: they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world drastically resets. From award-winning author Naomi Alderman, The Power is speculative fiction at its most ambitious and provocative, at once taking us on a thrilling journey to an alternate reality, and exposing our own world in bold and surprising ways.

"Captivating, fierce, and unsettling...I was riveted by every page. Alderman's prose is immersive and, well, electric." --New York Times Book Review
