Anmeldelser

«A smartly written thriller that opens with a satisfying bang . . . splendid»

Stephen King, New York Times

«Powerful and intelligent, with some unexpectedly trenchant humour, this welcome addition to the no-longer-so-speculative pandemic subgenre has plenty to say about grief, love, family ties and gender roles»

Guardian

«Bowstring-taut, visceral, and incredibly timely: Beukes's plague-tale is a parable about the glory and terror of Americanism in times of calamity»

Cory Doctorow, author of <i>Walkaway</i> and <i>Little Brother</i>

«Lauren Beukes is a writer with a startling imagination, and a masterful ability to rewrite the rules of whatever genre she turns to; and now, right on time, she has turned to dystopian plague»

Ben Winters, author of <i>Underground Airlines</i> and <i>Golden State</i>

«Five years in writing, this intelligent speculative novel about a pandemic feels alarmingly close to home»

Metro

«Afterland is that rare creature, a ripping tale that neither shies away from big questions nor interesting answers»

New Scientist

«Teases out the deep familial currents that run through its relationships, explores gender and reminds us that dystopian fiction can be seriously grown-up entertainment»

SFX

«I'm all over it»

Gillian Flynn, number one bestselling author of, Gone Girl
