A pacy dystopian thriller
Clever and fast paced
Fantastic - completely topical, utterly believable, and that rare thing: an issue-driven book that feels like a story, not an issue
Fresh, compelling and thought-provoking - I was completely immersed from start to finish
Topical, probing and quietly intense - XX is a phenomenal debut
With the pace of a thriller and a sci-fi plot, XX is a cracking high-concept read
'I could not put this down, even when my heart was aching and my pulse was raging.'
This is really, really good! A commercial Handmaid's Tale meets Humans. Timely, current, controversial
'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.'
'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.'
Can't recommend it enough . . . Exciting and a real breakthrough
One of the feminist novels of 2018
