PopCo Summary

PopCo by Scarlett Thomas

Alice Butler has been receiving some odd messages - all anonymous, all written in code. Are they from someone at PopCo, the profit-hungry corporation she works for? Or from Alice's long lost father? Or has someone else been on her trail? The solution, she is sure, will involve the code-breaking skills she learned from her grandparents and the key she's been wearing round her neck since she was ten. PopCo is a grown-up adventure of family secrets, puzzles, big business and the power of numbers.

PopCo Reviews

Ambitious, thought-provoking fun. * * Sunday Times * *
This book might just change your life. -- Suzi Feay * * Independent on Sunday * *
A wonderfully fresh and ambitious novel. -- Jonathan Coe * * Evening Standard * *
An outright amazement. * * Scotland on Sunday * *
An anticorporate fable with enough code-breaking tips, puzzles and graphs, charts, postscripts and appendixes to satisfy Lewis Carroll. * * New York Times * *
Frankly this novel is a bewitching, dizzying triumph. * * Scotsman * *
