Quotes & Awards

  • “Genius.”

    Anthony Horowitz, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “A delightfully irreverent, sharp novel…The fantastic characters keep the laughs coming and the readers thinking.”

    Boston Globe

  • “Rosoff’s supple and subtle writing is at its finest as she describes the tumult and tormoil of young love…There is something of Kurt Vonnegut’s intellectual playfulness, while the scenes set among the gods are pure Evelyn Waugh. But in the end, this novel is as hard to pin down and categorize as another of those Greek gods—Proteus. One must simply revel in the joyful singularity of Rosoff’s latest masterpiece.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “[An] intelligent and at times angry satire…Rosoff is a brave and uncompromising novelist, with an excellent track record for writing edgy, uncomfortable but memorable stories. This latest effort is certainly all of those.”

    Independent (London)

  • “Traditionalists may bristle, but there’s no denying that Rosoff’s writing and sense of humor are a force of nature themselves.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Steven Boyer narrates with a wonderfully wry tone that takes listeners into his confidence. His characterizations are thoroughly enjoyable…Boyer keeps this short philosophical experiment on track while recounting all the wacky hijinks caused by an adolescent god.”


  • “Wildly inventive and laugh-out-loud funny…It is not often that a book comes along that is both arch and thoughtful, silly and smart. This one’s not quite like anything else out there.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Boyer masterfully gloats, whines, and sighs to indicate Bob’s flickering emotions as he courts Lucy…Humor and irony are close at hand in Boyer’s reading of this fresh and hilarious story.”

    Booklist (audio review)

  • “Irreverent and funny, this book is sure to put off those concerned about blasphemous ideas showing up in teen literature, but it earns its place among the sharpest-witted tours de force of recent memory.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Takes a very unusual premise and develops a quirky myth around it…Rosoff  uses humor, pathos, and human development in supposing a hormonal adolescent is at the center of creation…Compelling…Those with an interest in philosophy or psychology will be hooked.”
