Sophisticated and laden with subtext... clearly reaffirms Barry's status as a gifted purveyor of suspense
Brilliantly realised... strikingly relevant... a resounding success
An extraordinarily fast, funny, cerebral thriller
Delightfully high-concept...think Noam Chomsky meets Christopher Nolan
Wonderfully crafted, dark yet humourous, fast-paced and tragic in turn
Best thing I've read in a long, long time... a masterpiece
Highly entertaining and engrossing... characters that are both complicated and likeable
Dazzling and spectacularly inventive. A novel that jams itself sideways into your brain and stays there.
Barry's smartest dystopia yet
A spellbinding, intelligent read...a freewheeling plot intermeshed with linguistic theory and some genuinely creepy horror set-pieces
Insanely good. Dark and twisted and sweet and humane all at once.
Truly original... a crack-paced thriller... smart and tons of fun
Gripping... a pitch-perfect thriller, a jetpack of a plot that rocketed me from page one to page 400 in a single afternoon
