The Power
The Power By Alderman, Naomi Book - 2017 | First North American edition

I really liked this book, and finished it in three days which is fast for me given my schedule. It felt somewhat like "Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card in some respects, with a story that focused on individuals who play major roles in the future of the planet. It doesn't paint a pretty picture of men OR women when given power over others. I liked the framing conceit of the story, which implied (to me) that we are destined to live out a horrific future, and that horror is cyclical: build, fail, destroy, repeat...
