Reviews

"The Snail on the Slope may be the most dizzyingly concentrated dose of the Strugatskys' strange and powerful medicine." --Jonathan Lethem
"[Arkady and Boris Strugatsky] open windows in the mind and then fail to close them all, so that, putting down one of their books, you feel a cold breeze still lifting the hairs on the back of your neck." --New York Times
"Approached as a meditation on the human inability to comprehend more than a very small part of the universe, this is a surprisingly satisfying, if often perplexing, work." --Publishers Weekly
