Reviews

"Absurdly brilliant. . . . A mind-expanding technothriller with a hotly beating human heart." -Emma Donoghue, bestselling author of Room

"Dazzling. . . . Propulsive and engrossing." -The Guardian

"Propulsively paced and ingeniously twisting. . . . A hyperactive, adrenaline-junkie dystopian thriller." -The Times (London)

"A wonderful novel, a tour de force." -Joseph O'Connor, author of Star of the Sea

"Unfolds in the deadly but jaunty style of a Hollywood action thriller . . . A gonzo hybrid between The Matrix and Fifty Shades of Grey, written in its best moments with the pace and wit of Dave Eggers's The Circle." -The Observer (London)

"Instantly convincing. . . . Powerful, playful. . . . What feels so fresh is that this predictive novel avoids even a hint of the usual doomsday cliches. . . . Connect will subtly change the way you see the world." -The Sunday Times (London)

"Connect really is a work of genius. It confronts and explores the nature of humanness and existence in a thrilling, immersive, addictive way, and marks Julian Gough out as a prophet among writers." -Donal Ryan, author of The Spinning Heart

"Imagines a world of systems within systems in which the alteration of a few human cells could have far-reaching and astounding effects on the universe. Recommended for those who enjoy near-future speculation coupled with an engaging and effective exploration of a fractured family." -Booklist

"A teenager rewires his brain to ramp up his cognitive skills in this near-future techno-thriller. . . . Thought-provoking." -Kirkus Reviews
