In Arcadia, the writing is assured, and Pears quickly draws the reader in with short, episodic chapters that quickly invite you on to the next section: if anything, the 10 opening scenarios are each so compelling that it would be easy to read them as 10 linear stories. (Irish Times)

The characters are well fleshed out, and the story world is fascinating. It moves between a dystopian future, 1960s Oxford and an alternate world. To say more would give away the plot. We meet Rosie (Rosalind), Professor Henry Lytten, and Angela Meerson, a brilliant mathematician, some way into the future. Amongst others.
What I like most about Pears is the seemingly effortless way that he weaves these threads together, drawing a complex plot to a highly satisfying conclusion. I think this is his most ambitious work to date, and it works very well.
