Críticas:

‘I’m in love with this book … It’s superbly written and very very funny and also very true’ David Aaronovitch

‘On page after page, O'Neill can still dazzle as a compellingly intelligent writer. Everywhere you look, there's a shimmering portrait of modernity waiting to be glimpsed … [An] ambitious, lucidly thought-through novel’ Guardian

‘Our only truly international writer … Breathtaking … O'Neill's writing reflects the individual's concerns in our desolate modern world in prose that is illuminating, amusing, sometimes beautiful, but never showy … A joy to read … Supremely insightful and intelligent … You can open the book anywhere and find sparkling sentences that perfectly describe what is momentarily in focus … Original and brilliant’ Irish Independent

‘O’Neill has become a writer extraordinarily attuned to the global and the post-national … Like “Netherland”, THE DOG has captured the zeitgeist … This is where O’Neill feels at home: telling the stories of those who cease to belong’ Telegraph

‘Sharp, sad and sometimes hilarious, this is a fable for our times’ Daily Mail

‘A mercilessly absurd portrait of the city’s wealthy residents … Our narrator is like Woody Allen trapped inside a Kafka novel … Brilliant … One of the wittiest critiques of modern, materialistic life that you’ll read for a long while’ The Times

‘The best comic novel I’ve read for ages’ The Scotsman

‘Enraged, brutal, witty and at times brilliant’ Sunday Times

‘Erudite and deliciously comic … like a mix of Martin Amis and Thomas Bernhard …With consummate elegance, THE DOG turns in on itself in imitation of the dreadful circling and futility of consciousness itself … Its wit and brio keeps us more temporarily alive than we usually allow ourselves to be’ New York Times Book Review

‘A mordantly funny and, surprisingly for these times, deeply moral tale of lost love and economic betrayal’ John Banville, Observer, Books of the Year

Críticas:

Praise for 'Netherland': 'An exquisitely written novel, a large fictional achievement, and one of the most remarkable post-colonial books I have ever read.' James Wood, New Yorker '[I have] not read anything that quite so brilliantly captured the exuberant madness and cultural diversity of [New York].' Jeremy Paxman, Guardian (Books of the Year) 'There is a very special sort of gratitude you can feel for a book that is so formidably written that it has you anxious to get back to it and pining a little bit to be away from it.' Sebastian Barry, Guardian (Books of the Year) 'Dazzling ... and told with great grace and daring.' Kate Summerscale, Sunday Telegraph (Books of the Year) 'The post-9/11 novel we've been waiting for: a witty, vivid, aphoristic, fiercely intelligent narrative.' Philip French, Observer (Books of the Year) 'Too good for the Booker.' Robert McCrum, Observer (Books of the Year) '"Netherland" is so expertly woven that it is impossible for a reader not to admire what it essentially is - a beautifully written exploration of memory and self.' Sunday Telegraph 'The wittiest, angriest, most exacting and most desolate work of fiction we've yet had about life in New York and London after the World Trade Centre fell. I devoured it in three thirsty gulps, gulps that satisfied a craving I didn't know I had. O'Neill seems incapable of composing a boring sentence or thinking an uninteresting thought.' New York Times 'Extraordinary. O'Neill is a writer of dizzying elegance.' FT 'O'Neill's novel was nominated by critics as a book of the year more times than any other title in 2008, and it's not hard to see why. Its perceptiveness and lingering air of sadness will beguile you more powerfully than you may at first expect.' Sunday Times
