The Power
By: Dion Muflia

Aku baca buku ini karena The Power termasuk dalam daftar satu buku favorit Barack Obama pada tahun 2017

Sedari awal, The Power menjanjikan terjadinya revolusi yang mengubah dunia karena perubahan peran gender dan kita diberi multi-POV dari tokoh-tokoh yang terlibat. Ada anak asuh yang teraniaya, seorang politikus, seorang wartawan, dan seorang petarung. Masing-masing memiliki bagian dalam membawa perubahan. Akan tetapi, meski di awal perubahan-perubahan itu...

terlihat positif, kekerasan dan kejadian mengerikan tak terhindarkan, seakan-akan membuktikan kata John Dalberg-Acton: "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Intinya sih, buku yang bikin mikir.

Who runs the world? Girls!
By: Antonius B.

This novel inverts modern day society on its head in a beautifully created narrative of an alternate society. Women are granted power to channel electricity (hence the title, “power”) and do harm in a world dominated by men (again, hence the title, “power”). Utopia at first transforms to dystopia as themes of humanity are brought up and questioned. As the saying goes, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Athough the plot is a bit choppy, and the writing could be better, it's an interesting take on gender roles, power, and corruption of values. I can see why this won a book prize

A Great Book for Book Club
By: Fera Setyani

"It doesn't matter that she shouldn't, that she never would. What matters is that she could, if she wanted. The power to hurt is a kind of wealth." 

What if women have power that make them dominant over men? Throughout this book we will face with so many possibilities to answer the question above. Will it be a great thing? Or will it become another disaster?

This book is a great book to discuss in a bookclub. It talks about some characters which have their own backstory and journey ahead along the discovery of women's power. It also gives a little bit insight about how man respond to the reign of women. At the end of the book, there is... See More

also a twist that make us rethink about what we've read, making sure we make the right opinion about certain things in the book. 

And to cap it all, we've got to question ourselves, what if this phenomenon of women having power over men, is really happening in our life right this moment?
