Ryman's novel is beautifully tragi-comic and filled with memorable characters. Rarer, it's a science fiction book that looks outside of Europe, North America and the cooler parts of Asia to remind us that the future will be lived by all humanity. (Jonathan Wright SFX)
None of Geoff Ryman's books is quite like another. His richest and best so far, Air is also perhaps his most mature. (Roz Kaveney TIME OUT)
Ryman weaves a simply engrossing tale of changing love, friendships and enmities. It's a terrific mix of backbiting, SF and even magic realism. (Anthony Brown STARBURST)
This is a novel you really have to read. (VECTOR)
'Air' manages to be a serious mediation on the effects of technology in a Third World context without being patronising; it's a genial comic masterpiece with moments of real poigancy. (John O'Connell TIME OUT CRITICS CHOICE 2005)
"An exquisite, beautiful, moving, and perfectly-judged fictional marvel. Ryman gets everything right in the novel. It is an unforgettable piece of fiction." (Adam Roberts INFINITY PLUS)
"Combining classic SF imagineering with Ryman's characteristically idiosyncratic take on magic realism." (NEW STATESMAN)
Geoff Ryman's triumphant return to science fiction is a powerful, evocative story of information technology and world changeSee all Product description

Tender, funny, scary, and enormously clever. I really can't recomment this novel highly enough.
