Product description


"Ingenious and original . . . A cracking good yarn, fizzing with intelligence" (Philip Pullman)

"A masterpiece . . . A brilliant, engaging story that makes you rethink the nature of existence and the true structure of the world" (Douglas Coupland)

"Destined to become a cult book" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Enormously ambitious and satisfying" (Time Out)

"Hugely enjoyable" (The Times)

"One of the most exciting novels I have read in recent years" (Jonathan Coe)

"Smart, stylish and dizzying" (Scotsman)

"A sprawling, shifting novel that begins with a strange rare book and ends up sending its heroine quantum-leaping through other people's minds . . . Thomas carries her readers through her wilder flights." (James Purdon Observer 2008-05-25)

"Thomas pulls off this intellectual rollercoaster of a novel with dry humour and panache, the ideas sparkle and the protagonist is wryly appealing." (The Sunday Times 2008-06-15)

"Enjoyable bunkum, as brainy as it is fantastical . . . Thomas has produced a contemporary fantasy novel worth reading." (Colin Waters Sunday Herald 2008-06-15)
