'Dystopias are Ballard's stock-in-trade and, when on song, he animates them better than anyone else...It takes a master novelist to pick out the small details...Fascinating' Sunday Telegraph 'It is his ability to summon a deteriorated but recognisable modern world into being that makes him among the finest dystopians at work' Sunday Times 'We're in Ballard-land, his old archetypes at war in a familiar-yet-strange terrain, and that should be compelling enough for any reader...Ballard, paradoxically, with all his characters gripped by obsession and necessity, is one of the great novelists of freedom' Financial Times 'Kingdom Come looks like a report on the state of modern Britain, but it's really a report on the state of J.G. Ballard's head, and the good news is that it's as fertile as ever...Kingdom Come is impressively packed with brilliant apercus.' ObserverRezension:
‘“Kingdom Come” is important, germaine, timely and creepy, a tidal wrack of ideas washed up on the artificial beach of our resort culture.’ Will Self
‘As outré as ever, and still as keen to understand the national psyche … Ballard retains a clear-sighted, almost vatic quality’ Spectator
‘As fertile as ever … “Kingdom Come” is impressively packed with brilliant apercus’ Observer
‘Ballard’s vision is scary and utterly real … compelling’ Financial Times
