Review

"Wears a big grin...packed with sly jokes, puns and farcical moments. Blending the best of modern and older styles his prose is never less than an a delight. There's no one else writing material quite like this." 4.5 star review -- Guy Hadley SFX A sinuously clever homage to the godfather of the scientific romance, enhanced by Mahendra Singh's lovely engraving-style illustrations. -- James Lovegrove FINANCIAL TIMES He wryly riffs upon Verne's original prose, before slipping into his own accomplished contemporary style packed with humour, adventure and menace-providing the best of both underwater worlds. -- Brody Rossiter Filminwords The very detailed and intense drawings help bring the prose to life...the words are a splendid, exciting voyage into the blue deep -- Mark Watkins Blast 1386 The science is meticulous, and the fiction articulate. Twenty Trillion Leagues Under the Sea may have in the manner of smarts than heart, but I for one very much enjoyed the voyage -- Niall Alexander Tor.com trippy, thought provoking science fiction with classic heritage...a whale of a tale indeed -- Paul Holmes The Eloquent Page One of the few things you can be certain of when booking up a book by Adam Roberts is that it will be clever, quirky and a little strange. Twenty Trillion Leagues Under the Sea doesn't disappoint in any of the regards. Starburst Magazine an eye-popping and mind-blowing exploitative technique, and our author outdoes himself -- Paul De Fliippo Locus Twenty Trillion League Under the Sea combines the authors serious novels with his parodies. The result is something that is not quite different and British in style but utterly compelling from beginning to end SF Book "Wears a big grin...packed with sly jokes, puns and farcical moments.

From the Inside Flap

Praise for author Adam Roberts:

"Our most intellectually engaged and literary SF author, crafting sentences the equal of any by Ian McEwan or Kazuo Ishiguro." - The Financial Times

"[Roberts is] an accomplished sculptor of prose and a cunning satirist, all that SF should be, packed with brilliant ideas and clever examinations of the human condition." - Deathray

"Psychological depth in a picaresque protagonist: most unusual and very welcome...in line with Proustian concerns of memory, Cavala remembers not only himself but much of the central matter of the '50s satirical SF of Sheckley, Bester, Pohl and Kornbluth...very pleasing." - Nick Gevers, Locus
