I’ve been a fan of Naomi Alderman since her Zombies, Run! days and have enjoyed watching her literary career explode with acclaim and success. Her newest book reminds me of Snowcrash in how fun, thrilling, intelligent, and fantastically bonkers it is. It is a genre-defying work that blends social critique, survivalist mania, futuristic tech, and philosophical treaties. I just couldn’t put it down. Two women whose meeting is unlikely and whose relationship is even more so, live in a world that teeters on the brink of disaster. I laughed, I cried, I stared at the ceiling thinking long into the night about my place in the world. Truly, this is one that will be talked about for many years to come.
