Amazon audiences will soon see a world controlled by women who can shock the shit of of you. That’s because the company just ordered Naomi Alderman’s book The Power to become a 10-episode series directed by Reed Morano of The Handmaid’s Tale.
First published in 2016, The Power was named one of the ten best books of 2017 by The New York Times, and one of Barack Obama’s favorites as well. It tells the story of a world where women suddenly acquire the power to electrocute people. It starts small but eventually ends up shifting the entire balance of the world, as told via a book within a book, 5,000 years after all this happens.
