Product description

Review

A time-travelling nerd applies Kant with lethal results in this dazzling philosophical adventure...this is really walking the literary high wire, and Roberts not only keeps his balance, he makes the spectacle compelling - The Guardian

using lit-fic techniques and by not playing by the genre rules, [Roberts] rises to the challenge that Mitchell sets down - SFX

The Thing Itself is evidence of Adam Roberts' inimitable brilliance. - Tor.com

I do appreciate a novel that makes me think while also entertaining me. The Thing Itself marries the two to perfection. There is so much packed within these pages and, without doubt, it's one of those memorable novels that will stand to repeated readings over the passing of time. A book of the year for me, for sure. - For Winter's Nights

Book Description

It seems we are alone in the Universe. How can that be? Adam Roberts brings his own unique literary take to Science Fiction's greatest question.
