Reviews

"Gnomon is an extraordinary novel, and one I can't stop thinking about some weeks after I read it. It is deeply troubling, magnificently strange, and an exhilarating read." -- Emily St. John Mandel, author of 'Station Eleven' "The best thing he's ever written ... It is an astonishing piece of construction, complex and witty ... It is a magnificent achievement ... He's never written a bad book, but this is the one that'll see him mentioned in the same breath as William Gibson and David Mitchell ... This book seriously just destroyed me with joy." -- Warren Ellis "Nick Harkaway's most ambitious novel yet. This story of near-future mass surveillance, artificial intelligence and human identity reads as if 11 novels have been crowded into a matter-transporter pod, emerging on the other side weirdly melded. An enormous, shaggy, infuriating, amazing and quite unforgettable piece of fiction, it's the kind of thing only science fiction can do." -- Adam Roberts * Guardian, Science-Fiction Books of the Year * "One of the most remarkable things about the remarkable Nick Harkaway is the irrelevance of his literary heritage. The son of John le Carre, he is very much his own author ... There's a lot of explanation in this book, but then there's a lot of everything going on in it. Densely texted pages of ideas, references and similes fizz and sparkle and burst into life in a fireworks display that keeps going ... The writing, too, is rarely anything other than impressive ... Gnomon does reward perseverance. Ludicrously complicated it may be, but it's also wonderfully good." -- Harry Ritchie * Sunday Times * "[A] prowling deep-sea monster of a novel ... A sci-fi detective procedural, violent thriller and multi-layered mystery combine brilliantly to pull us through a profound exploration of power and paranoia, technology and myth ... Harkaway dazzles, baffles and teases before guiding us through bloody darkness into understanding." * Daily Mail *
