  • [Beukes] brings a secret tenderness and humanity to her off-kilter portrait of the here and now

  • Lauren Beukes is very, *very* good. It feels effortless. Utterly accomplished

    William Gibson
  • A fabulous outing from an extremely promising writer ... [It] has so much fabulous wordplay, imaginative settings and scenarios, and such a dark and cynical heart that I was totally riveted by it

    Cory Doctorow
  • Beukes's energetic noir phantasmagoria ... crackles with original ideas ... Beukes skilfully employs all the twists of first-rate noir ... powerful indeed

    Jeff Vandermeer, New York Times
  • Beukes delivers a thrill ride that gleefully merges narrative styles and tropes, almost single-handedly pulling the "urban fantasy" subgenre back towards its groundbreaking roots

    Publishers Weekly
  • Energetic and imaginative ... Packed with colour, dark humour and thought-provoking ideas, Zoo City is an absolute must for anyone with a taste for the wilder edges of the genre

    SFX Magazine
  • Original and unputdownable

  • An unpredictable and helluva awesome read

  • Lauren Beukes is Jeff Noon crossed with Raymond Chandler. I loved it, it's going to be huge

    Paul Cornell
  • I couldn't put this down. It's weird, thrilling, funny... filled with sleazy characters and lots of bad attitude
