Conhecimento Comum



The Power by Naomi Alderman em Dystopian novels (Agosto 2019)


Set in an alternate universe, this book is produced by the Ministry of Recovery, set in the UK, where a Zombie virus has reduced the population drastically. I like the idea. The case studies between tell the stories of survivors, but the majority of the book is how to exercise, and survival and combat skills, including the best way to kill and dispose of zombies. Fun book for Zombie fans!

The more I thought about The Power, the less I liked it, but I saw enough buzz about this that I tried it, and I found it quite readable. Three billionaires—a barely hidden Elon Musk stand-in, a Steve Jobs-ish type, and a woman who might have a model in a Chinese billionaire but was less placeable—prepare to escape the apocalypse and control the future. Meanwhile, people in their inner circle—one grown child, one exiled founder, and one trusted assistant—are trying to figure out what they can do to reverse the damage these greedy, tyranny-supporting, environment-destroying monsters have done. And the trusted assistant’s new lover, a survivalist, is trying to learn more about what she’s gotten herself into, especially when the software she didn’t know she had on her phone helps her avoid an assassination. The narrative moves briskly; the repeated references to Job/Sodom and Gomorrah largely work well. I was left with the sense that it was somewhat less than the sum of its parts—the best I can say without spoiling is that it felt a lot like a really elaborate Twilight Zone episode.… (mais)

I love the premise of this book—5 stars for the idea. I don’t love the execution. The way the author jumps around between characters leaves something to be desired; I feel this could’ve been done in a way that still leaves the reader invested in the outcome for each individual, but it didn’t happen for me. Also, personal preference, the violence and SA in particular turned the story sour pretty quickly. I get it as a plot device, but it was a lot.

I'm not sure I'll ever be able to stop thinking about this book.
