• This is a brilliant, disturbing and wildly imaginative picture of the nanny state run mad; how far should the State be allowed to poke its nose into a citizen's business?

  • Zeh seems to have won every European literary prize going...Three years since its first publication in German (it is translated here with tremendous gusto by Sally-Ann Spencer), Zeh’s novel is even more relevant to our over-structure, over-quantified times.

    Simon Ings, Guardian
  • An impressively plausible account of a conformist society disguised as a utopia

    Lucy Popescu, Independent
  • In Sally-Ann Spencer's superb translation from German, Juli Zeh's novel gives form to a dystopia that remains hauntingly recognizable

    Charlotte Ryland, Times Literary Supplement
  • Thoughtful and intelligent...her main character Mia is an intellectual heroine as much as a physical rebel.
