    Review quote
    Brilliantly realised... strikingly relevant... a resounding success SFX Highly entertaining and engrossing... characters that are both complicated and likeable SciFi Now Gripping... a pitch-perfect thriller, a jetpack of a plot that rocketed me from page one to page 400 in a single afternoon -- Cory Doctorow BoingBoing Truly original... a crack-paced thriller... smart and tons of fun Australian Barry's smartest dystopia yet io9.com Sophisticated and laden with subtext... clearly reaffirms Barry's status as a gifted purveyor of suspense Time Out New York Best thing I've read in a long, long time... a masterpiece -- Hugh Howey, bestselling author of Wool Wonderfully crafted, dark yet humourous, fast-paced and tragic in turn National An extraordinarily fast, funny, cerebral thriller -- Lev Grossman Time Delightfully high-concept...think Noam Chomsky meets Christopher Nolan Vogue Insanely good. Dark and twisted and sweet and humane all at once. -- Lauren Beukes, author of The Shining Girls and Zoo City Dazzling and spectacularly inventive. A novel that jams itself sideways into your brain and stays there. -- Mike Carey, author of The Devil You Know A spellbinding, intelligent read...a freewheeling plot intermeshed with linguistic theory and some genuinely creepy horror set-pieces Guardian
