Reviews

"A fascinating and disturbing journey through the furthest recesses of the Internet. Jamie Bartlett is an expert guide... he shines an invaluable light on a world that remains determinedly opaque." -- Ian Burrell * Independent * "A hell of an achievement... Buy it and read it." -- Hugo Rifkind * The Times * "Eye-opening ... Bartlett is an informal yet informed guide ... As befits a cross-party intellectual, he minimizes binary distinctions, conveying instead a mixture of conservative disquiet and liberal tolerance. The tales he tells are exemplary, titillating and sometimes frightening" * Times Literary Supplement * "Bartlett anatomises the usual bogeymen and demonstrates that they're real.The Dark Net is, for anyone engaged with the web and the effects it is having on our culture, necessary reading... a flashlight in a dark, dark cellar." -- Michael Bywater * Spectator * "A fascinating and disturbing exploration of the outer edges of the internet and the human mind." -- Josh Cohen
