Reviews

"Machines Like Me reminds us that McEwan is once-in-a-generation talent, offering readerly pleasure, cerebral incisiveness and an enticing imagination." -- Lara Feigel * Spectator *
"[Machines Like Me] is right up there with his very best [novels]. Machines Like Me manages to combine the dark acidity of McEwan's great early stories with the crowd-pleasing readability of his more recent work. A novel this smart oughtn't to be such fun, but it is." -- Alex Preston * Observer *
"Ian McEwan's Machines Like Me is a dazzling account of our interaction with technology... He marries a gripping plot, handled with rarefied skill and dexterity, to a deep excavation of the narrowing gap between the canny and the uncanny, leaving the reader pleasurably dizzied, and marvelling at human existence." -- Philip Womack * Independent *
"Compelling... unforgettably strange... there are many pleasures and many moments of profound disquiet in this book, which reminds you of its author's mastery of the underrated craft of storytelling... [Machines Like Me] is morally complex and very disturbing, animated by a spirit of sinister and intelligent mischief that feels unique to its author." -- Marcel Theroux * Guardian *
"[McEwan's] fierce intelligence [crackles] like a Jumping Jack on Bonfire Night... Arguably the finest English writer of his generation, the ideas he explores are important, now more that ever." -- Richard Dismore * Daily Express *
"[McEwan is] as mordant a chronicler of the age as we have... Machines Like Me offers as good a primer on the multifarious anxieties that should afflict us all as anything catalogued as "non-fiction"." -- Bill Prince * GQ *
"Machines like Me displays... impressive richness. Excited by ideas and perceptive about emotions, encompassing cutting-edge science, philosophical speculation and lively social observation, it is funny, thought-provoking and politically acute... In this bravura performance, literary flair and cerebral sizzle winningly combine." -- Peter Kemp * Sunday Times *
"Original, and as always with McEwan's novels, beautifully written." * Independent, *Summer Reads of 2019* *
"McEwan knows all the novelistic rules... [and his] restlessness when it comes to subject matter, even as he enters his seventies, is stunning... [Machines Like Me] shimmer[s] with relevance." -- Janan Ganesh * Financial Times *
"[Machines Like Me] traverses the muddled morality of Artificial Intelligence... This is new and exciting ground for McEwan, one of Britain's most consistently brilliant writers." -- Olivia Ovenden * Harper's Bazaar, *The Books We Can't Wait To Read In 2019* *
