So to my surprise, a few major papers agreed to write reviews of my book. The reviews were really outstanding. Here are a few excerpts:
“Often called the greatest novel ever written, A Cartoon Guide is at once an epic of the Napoleonic Wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit!” –The New York Times
“A monumental artifact of contemporary American literature, almost assured of longevity as the statues of Easter Island... A Cartoon Guide is a novel that reminds us once again of all that we have taken for granted in our world and should not, the madness we try not to bother to notice, the deceptions and falsehoods we lack the will to try to distinguish from the truth.” –The Boston Globe
“The author's radiant wit sparkles as her characters dance a delicate quadrille of flirtation and intrigue, making this book the most superb comedy of manners of Regency England.”
“In A Cartoon Guide the author taps all her mesmerizing talent and scientific brilliance to create her most electrifying technothriller.” –Scientific American
“A Cartoon Guide is fascinating and absorbing--perfect for history buffs, conspiracy nuts, puzzle lovers, or anyone who appreciates a great riveting story.” –New England Review of Books
“A Cartoon Guide is a splendid book, deeply interesting and extraordinarily moving, remarkable for its sympathetic insights into both genius and schizophrenia.” –Roger Ebert
“A brooding Yorkshire tale of a love that is stronger than death. It is also a fierce vision of metaphysical passion, in which heaven and hell, nature and society, and dynamic and passive forces are powerfully juxtaposed.” –some British guy
“The classic tale of fantasy, this delightful masterpiece depicts all sorts of characters: greedy, selfish, obnoxious, compassionate, loveable, and generous. Throw in the amazing factory tour, and the hardworking singing Ooompa-Loompas, and you have a compact and entertaining story, which should be required reading for all ages.” –Billy Mumphrey, age 6
OK, I'm joking.
