"May be one of the most important novels published this year."
""Pontypool" shivers beneath the skin with unsettling wit. It is a deep book, but it is fun and magical as well." --"Globe and Mail"
"An exquisite writer . . . [B]lissfully overarching descriptions and deadpan humour that ensure Burgess won't be filed as a horror writer." --"Uptown Magazine"
"Like Burgess's last book, "The Hellmouths of Bewdley," the writing in "Pontypool" is taut with inventive and poetic metaphors. Overtones of the "Night of the Living Dead" abound and the novel is filmic in approach, style, imagery, and construction." --"Quill & Quire"
