Product description

Review

Inventive, funny and extremely smart . . . I nearly fell off my chair with admiration -- AUDREY NIFFENEGGER

A fast, sharp-toothed work of genius. An instant classic -- MATT HAIG

A psychological thriller with shades of Memento and The Matrix and the fiction of Mark Danielewski; page-turning, playful and chilling by turns ― * Guardian *

Very entertaining. The bastard love-child of The Matrix, Jaws and The Da Vinci Code -- MARK HADDON

Clever, exciting, funny and moving ― * Sunday Times *

A horror-dystopic-philosophical mash-up that has critics drawing comparisons to Borges ― * New York Times *

Jaws meets Alice in Wonderland . . . An avant-garde thriller in which these devil-fish of the unconscious somehow escape the symbolic realm ― * Times Literary Supplement *

No novel with a cat called Ian in it can fail to win a place in my heart ― * Daily Telegraph *

A thriller with elements of sci-fi, romance and memoir . . . A cracking read . . . but it's the outrageous inventiveness that marks it out as really special ― * Irish Independent *

A cult in the making ― * Time Out *
