"A novel that promises comedy as well as crisis" Guardian "McEwan has already aired extracts ... and the warmth, humour and zest of the book were unmistakable" Sunday Times "McEwan avoids the problem of how to dramatise and emotive area of science by uncharacteristically and highly effectively deploying a sly streak of comedy." Metro "Climate-change comedy that's every bit as brilliant as its title suggests" The Sunday Times "Solar has an engagingly direct, bleakly comic view of science and scientists. It also convinces." Times Literary Supplement
