Praise for THE POWER:
"Magnificent. I'm agog. Really, I'm several gogs. So smart and scary and sad but true. I can't say enough. It's a classic, in the way that it's hard to imagine it ever wasn't there." ―Joss Whedon
"Electrifying! Shocking! Will knock your socks off! Then you'll think twice, about everything."
"For diversion (also important in these times), I highly recommend two writers of speculative fiction, Charlie Jane Anders and Naomi Alderman."
―Ayelet Waldman, "By the Book" column, New York Times Book Review
"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
"A thriller that terrifies and leaves behind a lingering tingle that's part discomfort and part exhilaration. Easy to read, hard to put down, difficult to forget."―Cory Doctorow, author of Walkaway
"The Power is at once as streamlined as a 90-minute action film and as weirdly resonate as one of Atwood's own early fictions... Alderman has conducted a brilliant thought experiment in the nature of power itself...Turning the world inside out, she reveals how one of the greatest hallmarks of power is the chance to create a mythology around how that power was used. In that sense, The Power is a testament to its own force - it begins and ends in the voice of the author herself - as if to say, lightning would be nice, but for now - and here - there's the pen. It can do a lot."―John Freeman, Boston Globe
"Alderman has written our era's Handmaid's Tale, and, like Margaret Atwood's classic, The Power is one of those essential feminist works that terrifies and illuminates, enrages and encourages....This book sparks with such electric satire that you should read it wearing insulated gloves."―Ron Charles, The Washington Post
"Novels based on premises like the one at the core of The Power can quickly become little more than thought experiments, but Alderman dodges this trap deftly -- her 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
"Fascinating....as a whole the narrative feels ingenious....deserves to be read by every woman (and, for that matter, every man)."
―The Times UK
"The Power is our era's The Handmaid's Tale." --Ron Charles, Washington Post

**WINNER OF THE 2017 BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION**
What would happen if women suddenly possessed a fierce new power?
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.
