Reviews

'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
