"Moving, vivid and terrifying. I only hope it's not prophetic" (Conor Cruise O'Brien The Listener)
"The images of brilliant emptiness are one of the most striking aspects of this novel about totalitarian blindness...the effect is chilling" (Linda Taylor Sunday Times)

There is no point putting the accolades without a synopsis! I would have thought the "product description" would have a synopsis...
Having failed to watch the TV dramatization beyond the first episode I felt a growing need to find out just what this was about. A very readable and thought provoking book.Read more
