A trans-dimensional, kaleidoscopic mystery-box of a novel.... wholly and riotously original. Haddon is a mad scientist of genre and his epic is a tour de force
A fascinating and assured debut
Mind-bendingly clever and utterly gripping
Ingenious and compelling
A book designed to be more than the sum of its parts, and one that achieves that because love is the thing that binds it together. Vitally fresh.
With strong echoes of David Mitchell, Haruki Murakami or Emily St John Mandel...this is a madcap ride to somewhere new with thrills to spare and a gallery of truly fascinating characters. One for the ages.
