  • The Handmaid's Tale for the Gone Girl generation

    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

  • 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
