Narrated By: Naomi Alderman

Summary:

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.

    An incredible story, artfully told. Though not strictly allegorical, the parallels are chillingly accurate. Every time I think the comparisons are hyperbolic, I recognize how on-point they are with actual events and circumstances women have suffered from. No other book has effectively put me in a woman's shoes like this one, and it will stick with me forever. Grim, fascinating, remarkable.

    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.

    I started this book over twice because it was hard for me to follow the narrators voice changes for characters and to get into the story. I really think that was best because I understood the beginning of the story so solidly. Don’t give up in the beginning. This story blossoms into a quick-paced dark tale showing that no matter who is in power, it always corrupts. This is a story you will not forget and it’s chillingly paralleled to current events while being so, so far away. The creativity in this story kept me invested from start to finish, and will keep me thinking for days.

    The was an amazing novel, and it makes you realize that corruption happens with whomever has power it’s not a gender issue. If women suddenly have the power today, after all men have done to them...it’s no wonder that they fall into the same trap. It is a must read!

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

    A must read in today’s world. Truly provocative. Beautifully written and narrated.
