"Chilling in so many ways." --LA Times

"Cinematic . . . Natural selection is magnificent in the abstract, when it works over millennia, but seeing it sped up to take place in a single lifetime, as Smith vividly imagines, exposes its brutality." --Washington Post

"Fascinating . . . a propulsive ride [that] unfolds at a galloping pace through a well-built world." --Christian Science Monitor

"A vastly ambitious novel, tackling the weightiest questions of our time in a form that rarely loses the tension of a thriller, despite the complexity of its subject matter." --The Observer (UK)

"Cold People is a zany, wildly gripping, dark futuristic fantasy that achieves escapist lift-off [and] recalls H.P. Lovecraft and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. . . .Wild, imaginative, [and] fast moving." --Vogue, Most Anticipated Books of 2023

"Original and imaginative, as profoundly intimate as it is grand in scope, Cold People is a masterful and unforgettable epic."

"A brilliantly conceived postapocalyptic story . . . absolutely captivating . . . Smith's near-future world is wonderfully imaginative and rigorously detailed, the kind of made-up place that feels viscerally real. A real treat." --Booklist (starred review)

"Spellbinding . . . suspenseful . . . electrifying . . . A speculative masterpiece that will resonate with fans of Emily St. John Mandel, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Jeff VanderMeer." --Library Journal (starred review)

"What lines, if any, shouldn't be crossed to save humanity from extinction? That question is at the heart of this stunning postapocalyptic thriller. . . . [a] triumph of imagination and empathy." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
