Where Yoko Ogawa's brilliance lies is in taking such an apparently stiff framework and bending it into a work of warmth and beauty; or showing us that mathematics is not a cold, hard, science, but an elegant, complex, shimmering art. This feat of literary spoon-bending is accomplished with such calm elegance that it quite takes the breath away * The Times Book Club * This is one of those books written in such lucid, unpretentious language that reading it is like looking into a deep pool of clear water...Dive into Yoko Ogawa's world and you find yourself tugged by forces more felt than seen * New York Times * Strangely charming, flecked with enough wit and mystery to keep us engaged throughout... fairy-tale surrealism and quiet spiritual wisdom * Washington Post * Alive with mysteries both mathematical and personal, this novel has the pared-down elegance of an equation * Oprah magazine * Beautiful...the extraordinary Yoko Ogawa casts her spell ...This is a tale which will leave the reader gasping * Irish Times *
