Yet more blurbs/reviews for Central Station…

“Beautiful, original, a shimmering tapestry of connections and images – I can’t think of another SF novel quite like it. Lavie Tidhar is one of the most distinctive voices to enter the field in many years.”

-Alastair Reynolds, author of the Revelation Space series

And some recent reviews….

“Magnificently blends literary and speculative elements in this streetwise mosaic novel… Tidhar gleefully mixes classic SF concepts with prose styles and concepts that recall the best of world literature. The byways of Central Station ring with dusty life, like the bruising, bustling Cairo streets depicted by Naguib Mahfouz. Characters wrestle with problems of identity forged under systems of oppression, much as displaced Easterners and Westerners do in the novels of Orhan Pamuk. And yet this is unmistakably SF. Readers of all persuasions will be entranced.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A fascinating future glimpsed through the lens of a tight-knit community.  Tidhar changes genres with every outing, but his astounding talents guarantee something new and compelling no matter the story he tells.” – Library Journal (starred review)

“a standout, absorbing, well realised sci-fi world, with characters who feel like they’re about to stroll off the page and take you for a cup of arak.” – Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews

“If you’re looking for something a little more philosophical and thoughtful than the usual fare in the genre, look no further than this book . . . a fantastic read.” – Strange Currencies

“Lavie Tidhar gives enormous depth to the world he creates. . . . Central Station is a fascinating glimpse into a very possible future.” – Metapunk

“one of the most breathtakingly, bewilderingly, mindbendingly imaginative stories I’ve read” – Bookaneer
