  • So we have a fant-sci-historico-romp on our hands. And we'll need both of them because this is one juggling act of a novel....some will cover their ears but some will want to leap up to dance

    Tom Gatti, The Times
  • Rambunctious, rollicking, yet lightly spun... Interestingly different... Younger writes with great vigour and playfulness. His characters are rich and vividly drawn... Energetic and undisciplined, full of dirty, chaotic life - and death

    Nicholas Royle, Independent on Sunday
  • A deeply English dystopia...Each of Lingus's perceptions is lovingly worked, and so is each minor character's speaking voice. The novel succeeds because of the breadth of language it uses

    Sam Thompson, Guardian
  • Full of splendid disjointed moments, in which tropes from the picturesque squalor of the historical thriller are relocated into a satiric future

    Times Literary Supplement
  • Darkly comic
