Stunning... a haunting work of art.
Chris Cleave has the ability to create moving and beautiful scenes within a terrifying backdrop. I couldn't put it down; it's subversive, thought-provoking and well-written.
Richly sardonic and often disarmingly poignant... How can one fail to be impressed and moved?
Cleave's heroine is by turns funny, sad, flawed, sympathetic, both damaged and indomitable, and triumphantly convincing.
Searing.. poignant and compelling.. Utterly believable and mesmerizing
Dark, tense and undeniably provocative
Hilariously sympathetic and convincing
