"A work of magic" * Sunday Times * "Booker prize-winning Ben Okri's first novel in five years stands in the grand tradition of myth-making exemplified in One Hundred Years of Solitude and Midnight's Children, although the book has a vision and voice uniquely its own" * Observer * "It is with epic grace that Okri constructs. [He] passionately considers the nuts and bolts of the creative process...how observing art might do so much as to effect change in a human being" * Independent on Sunday * "Starbook is wondrous...[Okri] has a diction which glides superbly. His ear is pitch perfect" * Scotsman * "A quite beautiful elegy...there is something delightful in Okri's cosmic world-view" * Big Issue *
