-" Washington Post"
" Of all the non-fiction writers working today, Erik Larson seems to have the most delicious fun...for his newest, destined-to-delight book, "Thunderstruck," Larson has turned his sights on Edwardian London, a place alive with new science and seances, anonymous crowds and some stunningly peculiar personalities"
-- "Chicago Tribune"
" [Larson] interweaves gripping storylines about a cryptic murderer and the race for technology in the early 20th century. An edge-of-the-seat read."
-- "People"
" Captivating...with "Thunderstruck," Larson has selected another enthralling tale--two of them, actually--...[he] peppers the narrative with an engaging array of secondary figures and fills the margins with rich tangential period details...Larson has once again crafted a popular history narrative that is stylistically closer to a smartly plotted novel."
--"Miami Herald"
" As he did with "The Devil in the White City," Larson has created an intense, intelligent page turner that shows how the march of progress and innovation affect both the world at large and the lives of everyday people."
--"Atlanta Journal-Constitution"
" Larson's gift for rendering an historical era with vibrant tactility and filling it with surprising personalities makes "Thunderstruck" an irresistible tale."
--"The Washington Post Book World"
" An enthralling narrative and vivid descriptions...Larson has done a marvelous job of bringing the distinct stories together in his own unique way. Simply fantastic!"
--"Library Journal"
" Larson is a marvelous writer...superb at creating characters with a few short strokes."
--"The New York Times Book Review"
" Splendid, beautifully written..."Thunderstruck" triumphantly resurrects the spirit of another age, when one man's public genius linked the world, while another's private turmoil made him a symbol of the end of " the great hush" and the first victim of a new era when instant communication, now inescapable, conquered the world."
--"Publishers Weekly"
" [Larson] captures the human capacity for wonder at the turn of the century...[he] has perfected a narrative form of his own invention."
--"The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)"
