A wonderful book - painful, lyrical, frightening, brilliant . . . I couldn't put it down -- Kate Atkinson One of the best-orchestrated reveals in modern British fiction . . . Michel Faber is a masterly writer -- David Mitchell Profound and disturbing . . . Faber writes superbly * * Sunday Times * * This is a man who could give Conrad a run at writing the perfect sentence * * Guardian * * Teases and prods the reader up a plethora of literary blind alleys before hauling them screaming towards its final, thrilling destination * * Daily Telegraph * * Strange, adept, original . . . Would that more first novels were as adventurous or as funky and daring in their conception * * Independent on Sunday * * A brilliantly compressed drama of threat and ambiguity . . . Recalling writers such as Jim Crace and Russell Hoban, Under the Skin, like Faber's short stories, is an extremely assured and imaginative work * * Observer * * Astonishingly, this is Michel Faber's first novel. It is audacious, fascinating, repellent and quite unlike anything I have ever read * * Mail on Sunday * * Under the Skin is a shocking and fantastical take on modern humanity * * The Week * * The fantastic is so nicely played against the day-to-day that one feels the strangeness of both . . . A remarkable novel * * New York Times * *
