Surprisingly good for a story about a man with a golden dick. Geralt as a character developed surprisingly well through out the story, it's just a shame that the other characters felt a little lacking in comparison. I'm hoping that they are further developed in subsequent books.

PickwickPlockPlock I gave this book to my husband as Christmas gift. So far he likes it (I will steal it when he's finished). 12mo

Seriously, the apocalypse couldn‘t have happened to a nicer, more boring group of people. Little to no conflict, easy resolutions, barely any swearing, and no sexual tension. To top it off, it was unbearably long. I found myself thinking if this happened to me, I hope I die ASAP to never be stuck with these people.

Or maybe I am just a bad person....

I can live with that.

Sometimes it's dangerous to visit a book sale! Where should I start?

Leniverse Oh wow. Start with the shortest one? 😂 So many good books there, but some of them takes quite a while to read! 1y

The Power | Naomi Alderman

Pickpick

“This is not what happens to a man. Except now it is.”

This utterly brutal speculative tale begins with young girls developing “The Power” - the ability to deliver painful and deadly electrical shocks with a simple touch. Immediately, the balance of power shifts as men find themselves in the position of women. Alderman crafts her story with a raw truth and left me feeling uncomfortable and challenged. I was left enthralled to the very end.

Jacquililene Nice 👍🏻 2y
vkois88 Great review ❤ 2y
CarolynM Excellent review. I agree she challenges some preconceptions about the differences between men and women, I think that's why some people have reacted negatively to the book. 2y

miss_lucy_irene @CarolynM I can definitely see why some people dislike it, especially men. However, we tend to be uncomfortable with the truth, and it definitely looks at aspects of our nature unflinchingly! 2y
DivaDiane I received this on a swap and am really looking forward to it! 2y

BookwormM I loved this book really makes you think 2y
Kayleigh12 I loved this book. I‘m not usually into books that are dubbed feminist but this one was just so interesting and to be frank quite terrifying of what could happen. Glad you enjoyed it too. 2y
kidamy Welcome to Litsy! Thanks for the follow! 💕 2y
miss_lucy_irene @Kayleigh12 I found it very interesting how i felt so uncomfortable with the treatment of men by the end. Women have been and in some places still are treated like that, but I accept it as part of life and being female. It left me with so many conflicting feelings, which I guess is the point 😊 2y
SomedayAlmost I do think she wanted to make us uncomfortable. The way in which men who write were treated (in preface as well as Within major storyline) was also quite timely. One of the most creative books I‘ve read in along time! (edited) 2y
