MEDIA REVIEWS
Love, tragedy, joy... all human life (and death) is here * The Times *
One of the masterpieces of the decade * Washington Post *
Quite extraordinary... finally delivers SF into the hands of an English Proust * BRIAN ALDISS *
Excellent... with a well-imagined universe, well-executed characters and action that doesn't let up, this is Orwell's 1984 but on an enormous canvas packed with detail * Toronto Globe and Mail *
