Review

'The Weight of Numbers is unerringly well written, and engrossing to the last page' -- Lionel Shriver

Ings weaves an ingenious, shimmering web of contiguity and chance… a feat of meticulous plotting. -- Alastair Sooke in the New Statesman, 27 March, 2006

It is unlikely there will be a finer written fiction this year… Ings arrives at a new heart of darkness. -- Chris Petit in the Guardian, Saturday, March 11, 2006

One of the most exciting - and relevant - books of the last year. Booker material, for sure. -- Arena, March 2006
