“The Power”

Perhaps I should avoid books that use the word ‘thriller’ on the front or back cover. It isn’t that “The Power” is inadequate in any way; indeed it has all the required attributes – pace, tension, the gradual build to the climax. You can easily imagine it as being transferred to the screen in a dark, dystopian, powerful sci-fi movie.

Having said that the book wasn’t for me, I made it to the end and never once thought of giving up. That says something I guess…
