Recensioner i media

"A masterpiece" * The Times * "Flanagan's masterpiece" * Washington Post * "Lyrical and hilarious, tender and wildly angry by turns, it dazzlingly reconceives the form of the novel" * Observer * "Gould's Book of Fish is a novel about fish in the way that Moby-Dick is a novel about whales, Ulysses is a novel about the events of a single day" * New York Times * "A vivid, voluptuous, exhilarating writer" * Sunday Telegraph * "Hugely original... Passages burn with the intense pleasure of story-making, of the abandon that comes from a seething of ideas and their joyful mutation into words" -- Alex Clark * Guardian * "A seamless masterpiece of the grotesque" * Independent on Sunday * "Outstanding" -- Robert Macfarlane * Spectator * "As beautiful to look at as it was enthralling to read" * Independent * "Hugely involving, clever, witty and tender" * Metro *
