Review quote

"Few books begin more engagingly than The Lives of Tao, a science fiction romp which wears its principal strength -- the wit and humor of the narrative voice -- on its sleeve." - The Huffington Post "If you want something to read on a plane or settle into over the weekend, this is the book you want to pick up. But like most great stories, there's a little more going on under the surface." - SF Signal "Note to James Patterson fans: this is how to write a sci-fi page turner." - Sci Fi Bulletin "Chu's good-natured adroitness with character development is matched by his thriller-style plotting, a fine blend of gentle humor and sharp suspense." - Barnes & Noble Review "a science fiction story that is one part spy novel, one part buddy flick, one part comic book, one part eye-opener history lesson...among many other elements. Yes, it's a lot of parts, but they blend together quite well." - Examiner "Just your usual "I've got an immensely wise alien in my head who wants me to become an international man of mystery" story. Which is to say, Page-turning homage to other classic SF like Hal Clement's Needle. Recommended." -Steven Gould, author of the Jumper series "Filled with non-stop action and brilliant asides on the history of our species, the book is sure to thrill and amuse." - Ken Liu, Nebula Award winning author of The Paper Menagerie This book is high-octane spy vs spy action with a sly sense of humor. Pure pleasure from beginning to end. Highly recommended! -Ann Vandermeer, Hugo winning editor of Weird Tales and British Fantasy Award publisher of Buzzcity Press "Tipping his hat to both science fiction novels and comic books, Chu delivers a narrative that is at times pulse-pounding, laugh-out-loud funny and thoughtful. Part James Bond, part Superman, part Orphanage. There's something here for everyone." - Myke Cole, author of Control Point and Fortress Frontiershow more
