Reviews

'This is a fascinating exploration of the notion of self...Well worth reading, and when you've finished, let me know what you thought of the end because I'm dying to discuss it!' Nicole Has Read 'Clever and thought-provoking.' BookMooch 'It was incredible. The complexity of the storyline was nothing short of delicious and encouraged that deep, emotional thinking that is lacking in the majority of young adult novels.' Diva Booknerd 'It is a rare kind of young adult book that aims to leave the reader with more than just the usual afterthoughts of the story. Beckett encourages the reader on his or her own philosophical journey.' Book Kat 'Stunning and beguiling...This is superb fiction-thoughtful, clear, well-written and engrossing.' Sunday Star Times on August 'An intense, intelligent novel.' Listener on August 'This book is a beautiful example of a thought experiment, with characters you feel for, and stories that you enjoy every moment of.' Booksellers NZ 'Lullaby is very eerie science fiction which, in the telling of the story, discusses the dilemmas that medicine could find itself in when the desire to break new frontiers clashes with ethical principles...Confronting, terrifying and challenging.' Reading Time 'Bernard Beckett's biggest strength isn't that he is able to convey high-minded sci-fi concepts to his usual audience of young adult readers - it is the power of the concepts themselves...It's exciting to see a recent scientific concept such as the connectome (a map of neural connections in the brain) used to drive dramatic tension and ask big questions.' Cosmos 'Lullaby is an amazingly complex novel, exploring the nature of identity and shared memories as well as how we shape the story of ourselves. The questions it raises stay with the reader for a long time after the book is finished.' New Zealand Herald
