Brilliantly realised... strikingly relevant... a resounding success
Gripping... a pitch-perfect thriller, a jetpack of a plot that rocketed me from page one to page 400 in a single afternoon
Truly original... a crack-paced thriller... smart and tons of fun
A spellbinding, intelligent read...a freewheeling plot intermeshed with linguistic theory and some genuinely creepy horror set-pieces
Dazzling...An intelligent, raw thriller from one of Australia's finest
Highly entertaining and engrossing... characters that are both complicated and likeable
Insanely good. Dark and twisted and sweet and humane all at once.
Crazily inventive...Barry's smartest dystopia yet
Best thing I've read in a long, long time... a masterpiece
Sophisticated and laden with subtext... clearly reaffirms Barry's status as a gifted purveyor of suspense
Wonderfully crafted, dark yet humorous, fast-paced and tragic in turn
An extraordinarily fast, funny, cerebral thriller
Delightfully high-concept...think Noam Chomsky meets Christopher Nolan
Dazzling and spectacularly inventive. A novel that jams itself sideways into your brain and stays there.
Mind-bending...an action novel that nicely exercises the brain as well as the heart rate
A strange combination of romance, thriller and science fiction... The words brilliant and exemplary aren't adequate enough to convey the amazing craft of LEXICON.
The year's smartest thriller
