The ensuing narrative is of such cumulative, compelling strangeness that it almost defies description. The one thing that can be said with certainty is that Under the Skin is unlike anything else you have ever read. Faber's control of his medium is nearly flawless. Applying the rules of psychological realism to a fictional world that is both terrifying and unearthly, he nonetheless compels the reader's absolute identification with Isserley. Not even the author's fine short-story collection, Some Rain Must Fall, prepared us for such mastery. Under the Skin is ultimately a reviewer's nightmare and a reader's dream: a book so distinctive, so elegantly written, and so original that one can only urge everybody in earshot to experience it, and soon. --Burhan Tufail

An interesting perspective from a nearly-broken heroine, Under the Skin is an intriguing novel. It deals well with issues of isolation, purpose, and personal values. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Karina Woolslayer
Kind of fascinating but way to slow. After the 'secret' is revealed nothing really happens except a really explicit rape scene that was just too much.Published 1 month ago by Jakob Skott
