Sjoeberg thrives in the indistinct boundary between science and literature * New Scientist * A quirky tapestry . . . an enjoyable if wayward tale * Ecologist * Entertaining . . .iconoclastic . . . the writing is whimsical, digressive and pleasingly devoid of anything too weighty or purposeful -- Richard Coniff * Wall Street Journal *
