"Northern Lights is a thrilling story . . . which can be read and enjoyed simply as an adventure story, but digs deeper than that."
"Gripping and convincing. . . . Northern Lights is an impressive first novel."
--Times Literary Supplement "O'Brien writes superbly, he also has a wonderful ear for ordinary American idiom and the ability to fine-tune its innate rhythms, cadences, and imagery into an authentic popular poetry."
"Haunting. . . . Survival, courage, and heroes are examined beautifully and simply."
