"Stephen Fry at his twinkling best" Sunday Times "His best novel yet ... an extravagant, deeply questioning work of science fiction" GQ "A sci-fi comedy that is also a time-travel thriller, constantly topical and always surprising... packed with the author's personal enthusiasm and hatreds, the former red-hot and the latter icy-black" Literary Review "A powerful imaginative pull that keeps the pages turning while the tea goes cold and the cat gets the goldfish" The Independent "A sprightly and entertaining read" Daily Telegraph
