Every night as I finish 50 pages and close the book, I say to myself this is the book I want to be reading when I die. Like the Egyptians, I want to wake up in another life holding The Atlas of Lost Souls to remember the amazingly talented, erudite, imaginative writer Zana Fraillon - Juvenile fiction it is not. YA fiction it is not. This is a book for each one of us.
A wise and profound fable, beautifully told and deeply affecting.
[this book uses] a richness of language that both exhilarates and makes you cry. It is both timeless and ageless having a wide appeal. A powerful read I would highly recommend.
