really liked it

This book is a fascinating "what if" that focuses on power. What do we do when we have power? What does power do to us? Naomi Alderman goes deep on this question and embeds it in gender dynamics. What happens if you give a formidable physical power to the weaker sex? How will they use it? What other powers come along with physical power? In this telling, the result is disturbing, gripping, violent, and woeful (warning: dystopia ahead). I wouldn't want to live in this world, but I couldn't put it down. Thought provoking!
