"The Luminaries is a true achievement. Catton has built a lively parody of a 19th-century novel, and in so doing created a novel for the 21st, something utterly new. The pages fly."Bill Roorbach, New York Times Book Review

"A finely wrought fun house of a novel. Enjoy the ride."Chris Bohjalian, The Washington Post

"An 848-page dish so fresh that one continues to gorge, long past being crammed full of goodness. Nearly impossible to put down, it's easily the best novel I've read this year."Mike Fischer, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Go ahead and call Eleanor Catton a prodigy. At 28, she's the youngest author ever to win Britain's prestigious Man Booker Prize for The Luminaires, which warrants every one of its imposing - yet surprisingly breezy - 848 pages."Stephan Lee, Entertainment Weekly
