The Goddess Chronicle Reviews


Daring and disturbing . . . [Kirino is] prepared to push the human limits of this world . . . Remarkable * * Los Angeles Times * *
It is one of the most unexpected and playful novels to emerge from Japan in recent years . . . a triumph. In its boldness and originality, it broadens our sense of what modern Japanese fiction can be -- (for Real World) * * Telegraph * *
Be prepared for a book utterly unlike anything we are used to in crime fiction -- (for Real World) * * Independent * *
Got my heart beating -- (for Out) Rose Tremain * * Daily Telegraph * *
In her wildly far-reaching tale of relations between gods and men, men and women, life and death, darkness and light, Natsuo Kirino tells a peripatetic, global, and truly satisfying love story of how it is to be human * * Stella Duffy * *
Kirino's retelling is a taut, disturbing and timeless tale, filled with rage and pathos for the battles that women have to fight every day, battles which have, apparently, existed from the moment of creation -- Tan Twan Eng * * the Guardian * *
