In sparse, urgent prose, Liz Moore delivers a staggeringly beautiful meditation on love, legacy, and the emotional necessities that make life worth living. That lump in your throat? You wont quite know how it got there?nor believe how long it will stick around once the final page is turned. * Tea Obreht, author of The Tiger's Wife * I was so thoroughly engaged with The Unseen World. What a wonderful, fulfilling, riveting read, alive with complex characters, a thrilling story, wit, and, above all, a deep sense of compassion. * Jami Attenberg, author of Saint Mazie * Fiercely intelligent....Moore evocatively renders the remoteness of even our closest loved ones * New York Times Book Review * A cerebral, page-turning thriller an elegant and ethereal novel about identity and the dawn of artificial intelligence, and a convincing interior portrait of a young woman. * Washington Post * [A] captivating page-turner a wry, gentle coming-of-age story and an intriguing glimpse into the development of artificial intelligence and virtual reality It is also an incisive, insightful, and compassionate examination of the complexities of family and identity * Boston Globe * I absolutely love this wise, compassionate novel that challenges our definitions of family, of intelligence, and of love. Equal parts cerebral and heartbreaking, The Unseen World is utterly compelling, and its heroine Ada Sibelius is irresistible in all her thorny vulnerability. Liz Moore has given us a masterful version of our own modern condition, and I cannot wait to place this book in the hands of my most ardent reader friends. * Robin Black, author of Life Drawing * Smart and touching * Good Housekeeping * A striking examination of family, memory, and technology Mysteries build, and Moores gift for storytelling excels. This is a smart, emotionally powerful literary page-turner. * Publishers Weekly * Intelligent and brilliantly absorbing... Filled with achingly memorable scenes and beautifully nuanced writing, Moore's latest is a stunner in its precise take on identity and the compromises even the most righteous among us must make to survive life's challenges with grace. * Booklist * Moore creates a continually compelling drama ... She is masterful at evoking powerful personal connections as well as the intellectual excitement of the dawning computer era. * BBC Culture *
