Evening Standard

«An enthrallingly told Cassandra-like prophecy from the ever-inventive Naomi Alderman»

Observer

«This book sparks with such electric satire that you should read it wearing insulated gloves»

Washington Post

«The Power is at once as streamlined as a 90-minute action film and as weirdly resonant as one of Atwood's own early fictions»

Boston Globe

«Naomi's super-charged, subversive novel....forcing you to rethink everything»

Psychologies

«One of my favourite books of 2016 - clever, harrowing and thought-provoking»
