Editorial Reviews


“Harsh and ingenious! High Rise is an intense and vivid bestiary, which lingers unsettlingly in the mind.”
- Martin Amis, New Statesman

“Dizzying, disorienting, dystopian.”
- The Guardian

Language Notes

British actor Tom Hiddleston, well-known for portraying the supervillain Loki (The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World) and the writer F. Scott Fitzgerald (Midnight in Paris), brings his acting versatility and smooth voice to this visionary tale by acclaimed author J.G. Ballard (Empire of the Sun). When a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds, and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on "enemy" floors. Human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.
