Product description

Review

The Adjacent is puzzling, brilliant, frustrating, page-turning, disturbing and absorbing. (WERTZONE)

A beautifully written novel. (SCI FI NOW)

Thoroughly engrossing, and throughout Priest's scene-setting is impeccable. His descriptions of the workings of Bomber Command in the WWII section are worthy of Len Deighton. In the futuristic strand, he uses his flat, clinical prose to good effect to create a mood of oppressive menace. (STARBURST MAGAZINE)

Priest's novels are rarely easy, but they're always beautifully written and extraordinarily thought-provoking. (David V Barrett Fortean Times)

Priest touches on many of his favourite themes but shows us something new. (Roz Kaveney The Independent)

Christopher Priest's eerily resonant The Adjacent is one of his best novels. (Adam Roberts The Guardian)

Arguably his best yet. (Lesley McDowell The Glasgow Herald)

Book Description

A superb literary SF novel of alternate pasts and futures from the author of the ARTHUR C. CLARKE AWARD-winning THE SEPARATION and the BSFA AWARD-winning THE ISLANDERS.
