There is something particularly filmic about Cedar's story. At times, her address to her unborn son resembles the voiceover of Sarah Connor, the pregnant mother on the run from cyborgs in the Terminator series. Erdrich's narrative is not derivative or pulpy but its scenes are fast, visual, action-packed, perfect for film. And Cedar, like Sarah, is angry, fugitive, both powerless and brave, and ultimately a hero-mother in this chilling book,which is at once a dystopia and a state-of-the-nation novel. * Financial Times * If you enjoyed Naomi Alderman's The Power then Future Home is a more plangent, reflective variation on a theme . . . The tone is dreamy, close, pressing . . . an unsettling tale. * The Times * Erdrich is a wonderful storyteller and this rich, poetic tapestry is shot through with threads of despair and glints of hope. She deals unflinchingly with religion's capacity to oppress, but also offers the consolations of spirituality. * Daily Mail * Believable and absorbing . . . Smart and compelling, it's ultimately deeply unsettling . . . because it all feels horribly plausible. * SFX magazine * Tense and memorable . . . A journey worth taking and a worthy addition to contemporary apocalyptic fiction. * Daily Mail *
