The Future | Naomi Alderman

This novel imagines a world decades ahead but with the same potentially catastrophic events threatening civilization (the environment, pandemics, etc). There‘s futuristic technology with leaders vaguely reminiscent of people like Bezos, Musk and Zuckerberg but the conclusions reached in this book would have Ayn Rand rolling over in her grave — a plus imo! There‘s a lot going on here but I would recommend to anyone interested in tech fiction.

Name sighting! It‘s always nice to see it in print, even though the audiobook narrator pronounces it the “other” way 🤷🏻‍♀️

Paul says, “Will you give me a chance, Marguerite?”
I feel the smile spreading over my face, lighting me up inside. “Yeah,” I whisper as I take his hand. “Oh, yeah.”

Finished this up before bed. It‘d been on my shelf for a while. A story about a pandemic that wipes out most of the world leaving some people with magical abilities as well as without. Not my first pandemic book since living through the covid pandemic but it‘s still so weird and eerie - the stuff the author describes hits different after living some of it. Overall, I liked it. Likable characters and I‘m intrigued. Gave The Stand vibes

I knew nothing going into this book but I enjoyed it a lot. Very different from what the cover made my brain decide what the book was about.

Reggie I finished this a week ago. I thought it was so depressing. She has all those powers and still felt powerless for a lot of the book. 2d

This book has shown me I like my dystopian fiction to have an element of the impossible to it. Prophet Song is dystopian fiction that feels just a few votes away from possible. Riveting and harrowing. 4.5 🌟

Grateful for the beautiful day to offset the despair created by the book.

sarahbarnes Agreed. 3d

This was phenomenal. While I toggled back and forth between 4.5 and 5 stars (the ending felt too neat for me), I ultimately decided it was my first 5-star read of the year.

I‘m curious if folks who have read it pre-pandemic vibe with it differently, but man - post 2020? This and Parable of the Sower hit where it hurts. #AuthorAMonth

RaeLovesToRead I three starred this when I first read it, but since reading The Glass Hotel I feel like I finally clicked with the authors writing and I'd love to read it again. The atmosphere was haunting, but I don't remember much plot. 4d
Melismatic @RaeLovesToRead I‘d def recommend a re-read! 💖 I found it well nuanced and very human in a way that few authors seem to do well. 4d
Prairiegirl_reading I read it in 2016 and gave it five stars. Couldn‘t put it down. I‘m sure it would hit differently now. 3d
