One of the feminist novels of 2018
A pacy dystopian thriller
Clever and fast paced
Topical, probing and quietly intense - XX is a phenomenal debut
Fantastic - completely topical, utterly believable, and that rare thing: an issue-driven book that feels like a story, not an issue
This is really, really good! A commercial Handmaid's Tale meets Humans. Timely, current, controversial
Can't recommend it enough . . . Exciting and a real breakthrough
'This is politically and ethically engaging, as well as a very personal read. It shows a world that is only a few years away, and it left me with a lot of thoughts about gender and science. Excellent.'
'I could not put this down, even when my heart was aching and my pulse was raging.'
'Well written, perfectly paced and so timely,. Through excellent character development, Chadwick manages to explore the social, ethical and political questions raised, while still telling what is at its core a beautifully human story.'
With the pace of a thriller and a sci-fi plot, XX is a cracking high-concept read
Fresh, compelling and thought-provoking - I was completely immersed from start to finish
This timely novel looks at reproductive rights, politics and parenthood
A page-turningly plausible tale of the first two-ovum baby and the cultural ructions it causes
