Review quote

Awesome. CHUNG KUO carries the hallmark of legend. * SFX * Love, tragedy, joy... all human life (and death) is here * The Times * Colossal. A long-awaited, elaborately frightening vision of the future. * Sunday Times * Quite extraordinary... finally delivers SF into the hands of an English Proust * BRIAN ALDISS * One of the masterpieces of the decade * Washington Post * Excellent... with a well-imagined universe, well-executed characters and action that doesn't let up, this is Orwell's 1984 but on an enormous canvas packed with detail * Toronto Globe and Mail * Massive. Brutal. Excellent. * Guardian *
