Review:

Praise for FALL OR, DODGE IN HELL:

‘It keeps you reading, it makes you think, and, by the end, it generates that sense of wonder that is the very lifeblood of science fiction’ Guardian

‘A staggering feat of imagination, intelligence and stamina... The result is a story that touches on society, technology, spirituality and even eschatology, a far-reaching attempt at a grand myth that is breathtaking in scope and ambition... a one-of-a-kind synthesis of daring and originality, unafraid to venture into wild and unmapped conceptual territory’ New York Times

‘One of the great novels of our time’ Wall Street Journal

‘Captivating ... The passages set in the real world display all of Stephenson’s usual witty brilliance when it comes to technology and culture’ Washington Post

‘[Stephenson is a] speculative-fiction virtuoso... There are enough futuristic, envelope-pushing ideas here, especially related to AI and digital consciousness, to keep even nonfans and science buffs intrigued. Best-selling Stephenson is cutting-edge and his followers and all readers intrigued by shrewd speculative fiction will queue up’ Booklist Starred Review

‘An audacious epic’ Kirkus, Starred Review

‘There's no part of this book that doesn't chug and hum with that big-brain energy of near-future extrapolation that Stephenson's fans love him for... Stephenson's greatest strength as a writer has always been that he sees just a little bit further and a little bit clearer than the rest of us do’ NPR

‘Elegantly written’ SFX

‘A feat of mind-blowing adventure powered by deep existential questions’ Slate

‘Gripping ... a fantasy-science-fiction adventure story that is closer to reality than you might think’ The Week
