Reviews

"A brilliant conjuring act by one of the master illusionists of our time." --Wired on The Prestige"One of our most gifted writers." --John Fowles on The Prestige"Extraordinary--like a dazzling magic act!" --Entertainment Weekly on The Prestige"A dizzying show of a novel....Imagine Possession rewritten by Barbara Vine, or Robertson Davies at his most smoothly diabolical. A brilliantly constructed entertainment!" --The Washington Post on The Prestige"As ingenious as it is suspenseful." --Newsday on The Prestige"Nothing quite prepares you for the sinister complexity and imaginative flair of The Prestige . . . Magnificently eerie." --Anthony Quinn, The Sunday Times"Beautifully written . . . Two magicians vie with each other to create the perfect illusion: vanishing from one part of the stage and reappearing instantaneously in another. It's a story of utter fakery and scientific audacity. The pioneer of electrical power, Nikola Tesla, appears in a supporting role; to say more would reveal too much. Priest masters the merging of SF and mainstream, and The Prestige is his finest novel to date." --New Scientist on The Prestige"A taut, twisting, prize-winning story of two magicians and their fierce fin-de-si cle rivalry that taints successive generations of their respective families...An unexpectedly compelling fusion of weird science and legerdemain." --Kirkus on The Prestige"Remarkably akin to the style of the late Robertson Davies...Priest has brought it off with great imagination and skill." --Publishers Weekly on The Prestige"Hypnotic...The Prestige provides the satisfaction of an ambitious and well-told entertainment." --San Francisco Chronicle"The Prestige is in every way a marvelously scary entertainment with one of the creepiest final revelations in recednt years. Don't miss the magic show!" --Gahan Wilson, Realms of Fantasy"Just as a magic act should be: filled with haunting marvels." --Time Out London on The Prestige
