Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

This novel is utterly engaging, addictive, and thought-provoking. The characters are superbly drawn, their interactions realistic and engaging. Civilian Reader on Touch
I was totally and utterly gripped, it's just extraordinary. Absolutely mesmerizing. Clare Mackintosh, author of I Let You Go on Touch
Little short of a masterpiece. Independent (UK) on Touch
Another thrilling leap into the unknown. Toronto Sunday Star on Touch
An astonishing re-invention of the time travel narrative. Bold, magical and masterful. M.R. Carey, on The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
I don't say this lightly but The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is one of the top ten books I've ever read. James Dashner, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Maze Runner on The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
A work of sparkling originality that works both as mesmerising thriller and exploration of what it means, at the most profound level, to be human. Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls on Touch
The high stakes and breakneck pace of the plot will draw readers in, and the meditations on what it means to be human and to be loved will linger long after the last shot is fired. Kirkus on Touch
“A brilliantly balanced knife’s edge of a book—fast-paced and thrilling, it’s somehow also languorous, thoughtful, intelligently intimate. Kepler is a thoroughly absorbing and sympathetic anti-hero, trying to minimize harm while striving for survival.” NPR
Touch is fast, smart, cinematic and with a cracking central idea. This is absolutely destined to be one of the biggest thrillers of 2015... A very, very impressive second outing. Rick O'Shea, radio presenter, on Touch
Touch is a story within a story within a story and it's one of the cleverest, most compelling books I've read in a long time. The intoxicating voice, ingenious premise and intricate plot will have readers clamouring for a copy. Touch has bestseller written all over it and Claire North is one hell of a writer. C. L. Taylor, author of The Accident on Touch
Seriously I cannot get over how amazingly good Claire North is. I could have read this book forever. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August was so smart, Touch is beyond genius. This will be one of THE books of 2015. Mark my words. Bite the Book (Australia) on Touch
“Fast-paced, imaginative…masterful.” Washington Post
“The high stakes and breakneck pace of the plot will draw…[listeners] in, and the meditations on what it means to be human and to be loved will linger long after the last shot is fired.” Kirkus Reviews
“A work of sparkling originality that works both as mesmerising thriller and exploration of what it means, at the most profound level, to be human.” Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls
