The Power (2016, Viking) 4 stars

The Power

2 stars

A fantasy I could indulge in but philosophically shallow, positing only that power corrupts. A simple reversal without consideration of history of oppression, blanketing humanity with the empathic capacity of a child wanting to be king of the hill.
