'Much more than a clanging gong signalling the end of days, this is a charming tale full of laughs and angst, with a message both accessible and relevant to today's teenagers.'
'It's edgy, it's appealing and it's contemporary and it makes for utterly compelling and frightening reading.'
'an uproarious, scathing and pathos-filled romp - Adrian Mole does the apocalypse.'
'A daunting vision of global chaos.'
An absolutely brilliant read.
Powerful and impressive ... There is backs-to-the-wall fun in this novel. But it is also intensely serious.
Simultaneously zany and serious, it's a book successfully opperating on different levels
An engrossing and engaging novel
A real eye-opener of a book ... told in a funny and interesting way, this book made a good -- if somewhat scary -- read
Fresh, hugely impressive and very readable
Loses sight of neither the seriousness of the subject matter nor the reader's funny bone
This book is perfect from cover to cover ... original, clever, funny, well worked out ... A superbly presented great read you'll never forget
A perfect example of how to blend an important message into an entertaining novel
An uproarious, scathing and pathos-filled romp -- Adrian Mole does the apocalypse
A brilliant mix of teen drama and bleak British science fiction, this is a cross between Adrian Mole and JG Ballard ... an entertaining, gripping read
Completely gorgeous ... entirely plausible
Frank, honest and gripping ... should instantly be put onto the GCSE reading list
It's smart and assy, as all the best teen diary novels are ... But it's also dark and dangerous ... a very, very, very clever book
An absolutely brilliant read
I thought that it was a brilliant read ... I really want to read the sequel
Saci Lloyd's portrayal of an angsty teenager squaring her infatuation with the boy next door and ambitions to be a new punk angel with a state clampdown on everything that powers her lifestyle is smart, funny and all too believable
