Recensioner i media

"A brilliant read, unlike anything you have ever read before...the message is universal." -- Philip Howard, "The Times" <br>"Okri is incapable of writing a boring sentence. As one startling image follows the next, The Famished Road begins to read like an epic poem that happens to touch down just this side of prose.... When I finished the book and went outside, it was as if all the trees of South London had angels sitting in them." -- Linda Grant, "Independent on Sunday" <br>"It is a rich, provocative and hopeful vision of the world, stuffed full of drama and surprise.... Its literary lineage -- the ease with which spirits move through everyday life -- is from ancient Greece and medieval romances." -- Robert Winder, "Independent" <br>"Overwhelming...just buy it for its beauty." -- Jenny Turner, "New Statesman & Society"
