Alderman berättar om en värld bortom patriarkatet. Riktigt empowering och stärkande. Har alla känslor: sorg, ilska, glädje och vemod. Läs!
My, 3 juli 2018
Ganska fattigt språk, och plotten föll platt i slutet. Intressant idé dock, hade varit bra om författaren lyckats knyta ihop säcken i slutet.

It's a riveting story, told in fittingly electric language, that explores how power corrupts everyone: those new to it and those resisting its loss' * New York Times * In this fierce and unsettling novel, the ability to generate a dangerous electrical force from their bodies lets women take control, resulting in a vast, systemic upheaval of gender dynamics across the globe * New York Times Books of the Year * 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 * This book sparks with such electric satire that you should read it wearing insulated gloves * Washington Post * An enthrallingly told Cassandra-like prophecy from the ever-inventive Naomi Alderman * Observer * The Power by Naomi Alderman is the feminist flipside to The Handmaid's Tale, asking what happens when women are suddenly the stronger sex * Evening Standard * This year's Baileys winner is simultaneously a high-concept thought experiment and a rollercoaster, action packed read * Guardian * It's a feminist dystopian page-turner of a thriller and I'm IN LOVE with it -- Marian Keyes Electrifying -- Margaret Atwood One of my favourite books of 2016 - clever, harrowing and thought-provoking -- Paula Hawkins, best-selling author of The Girl on the Train Naomi's super-charged, subversive novel....forcing you to rethink everything * Psychologies * Frenetic sci-fi novel * Daily Mail * A gripping read and a reminder of the true joy of a truly engaging story * Stylist * Like the best science fiction, this dystopian feminist fantasy holds up a mirror to the here and now * Mail on Sunday * A raw, gutsy slice of speculative dystopia * Metro * What starts out as a fantasy of female empowerment deepens and darkens into an interrogation of power itself, its uses and abuses and what it does to the people who have it * Guardian * As awesome as it is compulsive * Heat, 5 stars * I loved it; it was visceral, provocative and curiously pertinent . . . The story has stayed with me since * Stylist, the decade's 15 best books by remarkable women * When we say that The Power is profoundly disturbing and you may well want to argue with it as you read, we mean that in a good way * SFX, Five Stars * Thought-provoking novel * Glamour * Alderman is a fluent and powerful writer * Sunday Times * If you enjoy Margaret Atwood's dystopian fiction, this strong, substantial novel is for you * Woman & Home * A feminist science-fiction story that's about to make waves * Red * 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 * Electrifying! Shocking! Will knock your socks off! Then you'll think twice, about everything -- Margaret Atwood 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 The Hunger Games crossed with The Handmaid's Tale * Cosmopolitan * A stone cold genius -- Sarah Perry The Handmaid's Tale for the Gone Girl generation * Grazia * It's magnificent. I'm agog. Really, I'm several gogs. So smart and scary and sad but true -- Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
