Product description

Review

Pelevin's all-out attack on contemporary culture satirises oppressive society, consumerism and the desire for power (The Guardian)

There are some excellent vignettes and fine image, such as vampires decanting the memories and experiences of their human livestock, and the conceptual beauty of the revealed world will have some readers purring with pleasure...the superb translation means it's always exquisitely written (SFX)

Pelevin's tale is a smart, witty, and politically motivated (Film in Words)

Trust me, Empire V is unlike anything else you'll read this year. Pelevin creates this complex vampire mythology in order to skewer modern-day corruption, cruelty, greed, and authoritarianism. (SF Signal)

Review

The core strength of Pelevin's writing is its unruly, suggestive energy - The Independent

A joy to read . . . Complex ideas are rendered simply and organically, never disturbing the narrative flow - The New York Times

A book rich in well-observed satirical jibes, zingy conversational duels and evocative description - Strange Horizons

Pelevin is blessed with a distinctive mix of eloquence and nervous energy, inventive storytelling and subversive wit - Publishers Weekly
