Reviews

The Strugatsky's great lost masterwork, an allegorical nightmare metropolis fit for the special atlas that gives home to Kafka's Castle, Charles Finney's The Unholy City, Rex Warner's Aerodrome, and a very select handful of others.

-- "Jonathan Lethem, New York Times bestselling author"

A book that carries an Orwellian punch, and a crazed energy all its own.

-- "Nature"

Put The Doomed City in the bookcase next to 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Ultima Thule, and Ballard's Kingdom Come. If you aren't a sci-fi fan, it fits equally well alongside Animal Farm, Red Harvest, and Catch-22.

-- "Huffington Post (Canada)"

The historical references are nuanced and poignant. And the conclusions, disturbing and beautiful in equal parts. It's the kind of book that will shake you to your core.

-- "Men's Journal online"

Mysterious...Thought-provoking.
