About the book

image3.8/5.0

In The Powerthe world is a recognizable place- there's a rich Nigerian kid who larks around the family pool; a foster girl whose religious parents hide their true nature; a local American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But something vital has changed, causing their lives to converge, with devastating effects. Now, with the flick of a switch, teenage girls can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world changes utterly. This extraordinary novel by Naomi Alderman, a Sunday TimesYoung Writer of the Year and GrantaBest of Young British writer, is not only a gripping story of how the world would change if physical power was in the hands of women but also exposes, with breath-taking daring, our contemporary world.

Ambitious and has a great underlying concept (think sex role reversal and undoing the patriarchy). But the plot is rushed and the characters are one-dimensional. May be a good read for Phillip K. Dick fans, of if you want a lesser version of Atwood’s The Testaments.
