'Alderman's writing is beautiful, and her intelligence seems almost limitless. She also has a pitch-dark sense of humor that she wields perfectly.' --Michael Schaub, NPR
All over the world women and girls are discovering they have the power. With a flick of the fingers they can inflict terrible pain, and even death. And with this small twist of nature, everything changes drastically.

Ambitious and provocative, visceral and page-turning, award-winning author Naomi Alderman's THE POWER at once takes us on a journey to an alternate reality and exposes our own world in bold and surprising ways.

    I really enjoyed the story and the narration. It was excellent together; the narrator really brought the story to life.

    I've listened to a lot of audiobooks, and this narrator (Adjoa Andoh) is by far the best I've ever heard! This book has a global scale, and she nailed everything from a young female American to a cockney Brit to a male Nigerian. The story itself is also very good. It's so honest and compelling.
