Reviews

From the opening paragraph I dove into the deep end of a dystopian world that was terrifying, familiar and thrilling and made me keep reading until the shocking end. The novel focuses on family and survival and love and human nature; hunger, passion, possession and murder. A masterpiece. Jamie Lee Curtis
Claudia Casper s "The Mercy Journals" is a book of extraordinary vision. Part "Lord of the Flies," part Romeo Dallaire s "Shake Hands with the Devil," I came out of this book deeply touched by the characters who moved through it, but also more alert. There s a sense of the prescient in this novel of where we could end up if we re not careful. Aislinn Hunter, author of "The World Before Us"
"I admire tremendously how The Mercy Journals takes current concerns -- global warming, PTSD, anti-immigration policies, war -- and weaves them seamlessly into a gripping and mysterious plot set in a future world that, like any excellent sci fi, is really about today." John Colapinto, staff writer at "The New Yorker"
"Casper employs clear, concise prose that moves at a steady clip, and the exploration, through one man's account, of what it means to outlive one's purpose is tightly constructed." "Publishers Weekly"
"Posing profound questions about compassion, values, and our capacity for life-saving change, Claudia Casper performs a remarkably incisive and sensitive variation on the dystopian theme in this suspenseful and provocative tale of sacrifice and survival." "Booklist"
