Staff Reviews

What would the world look like if men—not women— lived in constant fear of their physical safety? The Power is a terrifying, yet illuminating book that flips a very real issue on its head. Naomi Alderman will not only make you think about gender, but also race, class, war, religion, refugees, and so much more. Reading this book is powerful in itself: its basis in reality is frightening, yet the light Naomi is able to shed on that reality is a timely reminder of why we read and write speculative fiction in today's world. A moving novel--and a call to arms for everyone to pay close attention to the power within themselves.
