Product description

Review

"A memorable debut...[and a] gleefully apocalyptic novel... as ever with this kind of dystopian fiction, there is a satisfying tingle in imagining an Armageddon just round the corner. But Amsterdam also gives his book an emotional heart" (Adrian Turpin Financial Times)

"What makes Things We Didn't See Coming such an impressive novel - and very impressive debut - is the playfulness of the writing contrasted to the grimness of the subject matter" (Christopher Potter Sunday Times)

"Rarely has the darkness of life been looked at with such buoyant irony, imaginative grace and disarming ardour. Read it once and then read it twice" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

"A small marvel, overflowing with ideas. Scary, funny, shocking and touching by turns" (Justine Jordan Guardian)

"Here's that rare thing - a post-apocalypse novel that's more than doom and gloom. A treat to read - playful, intelligent and intriguing" (Daily Mail)

Book Description

A mesmerising debut set in a not-too-distant future, in a landscape at once utterly fantastic and strangely familiar.
