Recensioner i media
Marvelous... Intoxicating... Hugely entertaining... It doesn't take magical powers to predict it will be one of the year's best-loved books. * Washington Post * A Harry Potter-ish action-adventure romance [that] unfolds against the backdrop of the Arab Spring... Improbably charming... A bookload of wizardry and glee. * New York Times * Wilson writes beautifully, tells a great story, and even makes computer hackery seem like magic. * Sunday Times * Charming and original * Sunday Telegraph * Among the most original and challenging books of 2012, and my personal pick for at least one major award in 2013. * Guardian * Brilliant... witty, imaginative and unorthodox in all senses * Observer * An exhilarating techno-thriller but also far more than that... Wilson has created in this rich, literate novel a profound dialogue between tradition and modernity, belief and non-belief, fairy tale and urban reality. * Guardian *
