Noteworthy Reviews

“It’s ridiculous how good this book is. . . . Bacigalupi’s vision is almost as rich and shocking as William Gibson’s vision was in 1984 . . . I hope he writes 10 sequels.”
—Lev Grossman, TIME

“Reminiscent of Philip K. Dick’s Blade Runner…. densely packed with ideas about genetic manipulation, distribution of resources, the social order, and environmental degradation … science fiction with an environmental message, but one that does not get in the way of its compelling story.”
—Sacramento Book Review

“This complex, literate and intensely felt tale, which recalls both William Gibson and Ian McDonald at their very best … clearly one of the finest science fiction novels of the year.”
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
