Reviews

"A powerful and provocative novel"--The New York Times

"Wrought with admirable skill -- the emptiness and menace underlying this Utopia emerge step by inexorable step: a richly provocative novel."--Kirkus, starred review


"Lowry is once again in top form raising many questions while answering few, and unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The simplicity and directness of Lowry's writing force readers to grapple with their own thoughts."-- Booklist, starred review

"The theme of balancing the values of freedom and security is beautifully presented."-- The Horn Book Magazine, starred review
