Anmeldelser

«The story is gripping, the characters are terrific and the writing is clever and funny. As intelligent as it is enjoyable»

Daily Mail

«It's a proper novel. By which I mean, not that it has pages you actually turn - that is optional with novels nowadays - but pages that you actually want to turn, which is getting rarer and rarer.... Charming, gently comedic, sweetly nerdy and enthusiastic about media both old and new »

Irish Times

«A rollicking neo-Borgesian tale... an ode to the beauty of dead-tree books »

New York Times

«Delightful... Smart, hip and witty»

Washington Post

«The pages swell with Mr Sloan's nerdy affection and youthful enthusiasm for both tangible books and new media... A clever and whimsical tale with a big heart»

The Economist
