Quotes & Awards

  • “A gripping thriller…Kunzru uses his extraordinary gifts as a storyteller—his brightly textured prose, his empathetic understanding of his characters, his narrative flair—to turn a tabloidy tale into a genuinely moving portrait of a marriage and the difficulties of parenthood.” 

    New York Times

  • “Kunzru is wise beyond his years, [a] novelist in superb command of his craft…In his dazzling new novel, a desert is the setting, hero, and villain…Here is where the walking wounded come to pray to Yahweh, Allah, Vishnu, Coyote, the Brothers of Light. Here are cynical veterans from WWII, hard-bitten GIs fresh from Iraq, randy communards, washed-up bankers, wasted groupies. Here is death, sex, and rock-and-roll.” 

    Washington Post

  • “Mind-bending…[A] thrill ride of a novel about searching for truth.”  

    O, The Oprah Magazine

  • “A stunning achievement…Gods Without Men will undoubtedly prove to be one of the most important works of fiction published this year.” 

    New York Journal of Books

  • A 2012 Washington Post Notable Book for Fiction
  • A 2012 Barnes & Noble Best Book for Fiction

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Scott | 2/11/2014

    " So, most of this book was very good, compelling story, well written. I enjoyed the way the author jumped back and forth in time, reminding me of Cloud Atlas. But it just never really came together for me. I felt like the ending was forced and left feeling unsatisfied. I am glad I read it and there was some wonderful writing, but ultimately disappointing. "

    " Interweaving stories connected through time...I hoped it would end as hopefully (not quite the right word?) as Cloud Atlas. "

    " We've spent many vacations in Palm Desert, visiting the Giant Rock, the Integretron (both in Landers, CA), Joshua Tree Nat'l Park, and other crazy places in the high Mohave Desert. My husband was about to write a book about it, when I read a revue of this one. I enjoyed the book because I recognized the kernels of truth it was based on. The truth you would not believe... "
