Under the Skin is a shocking and fantastical take on modern humanity. * * The Week * * 'One measure of a book is its stickability, its ability to remain in the mind long after being read. Michel Faber's Under the Skin passes this test with ease, or should that be unease? Faber builds a credible thriller on what seems the shakiest of premises . . . Its triumph, however, is that it plays on the mind long after a first reading. It is the best first novel of the year and a worthy successor to Faber's short stories. * * Herald * * . . . strange, adept, original . . . Would that more first novels were as adventurous or as funky and daring in their conception. * * Independent on Sunday * * Astonishingly, this is Michel Faber's first novel. It is audacious, fascinating, repellent and quite unlike anything I have ever read. * * Mail on Sunday * * Edgy, accomplished debut . . . To describe the bizarre scenario behind this novel would make it sound absurd but in Michel Faber's hands it is a compelling and darkly disorientating tale. Told in sparse, often beautiful prose, Under the Skin defies genre, swerving from parable to science fiction and questioning what makes us human, how we connect to each other, and how we define and treat the 'other'. A refreshing reminder of how good fiction can make our own world seem alien. * * Daily Mail * *Reseña del editor:
A brilliantly told and beautifully written novel that defies categorisation, Under the Skin introduces Isserley, a woman obsessed with picking up male hitchhikers - so long as they're well-muscled and alone. But why? As the story unfolds and the reason is made explicit, the reader is drawn inexorably into a completely unexpected and increasingly terrifying world.
