The Hungarian voice of the Universe (Bookblog - Könyvesblog)
If there was an English name on the cover I would believe with no hesitation that I am reading an excellent American novel in a brilliant translation. (Life and Literature - Élet és irodalom)
I use unclear wording on purpose, so that I will not destroy the punchline which is more exciting, more mysterious and more unexpected than the one of a perfectly written, eventful, colourful American action thriller of these days. Anyway similarly to those, it is enthralling and as a novel, it is perfectly professional. (Life and Literature - Élet és irodalom)
Centauri’s prose is infinite and can not be coded. It mixes marks of great ancestors with popcultural and literal hints, with magical and merciless realism, and from the whole he creates something typically Centauri-like. And he does this in a way that we can not even define what makes it typical. We should rather say: everything together. It must have a unique place on the shelf. (Bookblog - Könyvesblog)
