Product description


"...it leaves you with plenty of food for thought, with questions left satisfyingly unanswered. Brasyl will remain a continent rich in resources for adventurous critics for some time to come, and it can be hoped that it will achieve a deserved place in the canon of literary science fiction." --Foundation, Vol. 37, No. 102, Spring 2008 "Brasyl is a science fiction in the grand manner, so dense with ideas and exotic scenes...[it] spins its readers through multiple slices of reality, and brings them back dazzled." --Magill Book Reviews, Salem Press, 2008 "I will admit I haven't read any of the other novels running for the 2009 nebula award but I would certainly understand if McDonald got it. Brasyl is very carefully written and well researched. It displays the quality of McDonald's writing very well." -- BookSpotCentral.com, March 23, 2009 "Somehow this novel encompasses a war over the nature of reality while telling three different stories laden with action scenes and dense sheaves of worldbuilding. Car-chases, knife-fights, sword-fights, wars, television production meetings, quantum physics, theology, soccer - the intensity is staggering, but also intoxicating. The style is brilliant, almost literally glittering with concrete details embodied in well-chosen words - different and electrifying." -- James Enge on Black Gate blog, March 28, 2009
