The Power

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Naomi Alderman

Narrated By: Adjoa Andoh

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Duration: 12 hours 7 minutes


What would happen if women suddenly possessed a fierce new power?

In THE POWER, the world is a recognizable place: there's a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool; a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature; an ambitious American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power-they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world drastically resets.

From award-winning author Naomi Alderman, THE POWER is speculative fiction at its most ambitious and provocative, at once taking us on a thrilling journey to an alternate reality, and exposing 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.
