Rezension:

" This is an astounding undertaking. In Book of Numbers the wizardly Joshua Cohen relocates the line between tragedy and comedy. His lurid and high-achieving characters create and suffer the Internet – which is now tightening around us all. I don’t know of any other work like this one" (Norman Rush)

" Book of Numbers is a lot of things – a disquisition on and aping of the Internet, a dissection of friendship and romance in the Digital Age, and a doppelgänger tale – but for me it’s most poignant as an elegy for the written word, and as a rebuke to its decline" (Joshua Ferris, author of To Rise Again at a Decent Hour)

" Cohen is one of the most intelligent, witty, and moving writers we have, and Book of Numbers is his most magnificent and ambitious book. This novel illuminates the mysterious and near-invisible landscape of right now" (Rivka Galchen, author of American Innovations)

" An ambitious and inspired attempt at the Great American Internet Novel... Cohen’s encyclopedic epic is about many things – language, art, divinity, narrative, desire, global politics, surveillance, consumerism, genealogy – but it is above all a standout novel about the Internet, humanity’s ‘first mutual culture,’ in which our identities are increasingly defined by a series of ones and zeroes" ( Publishers Weekly)

"Cohen riffs impressively on countless Web-related matters, from chaos to code to venture capital to Y2K... [He] also recognizes the laughs and peril at this technologically challenging stage of the human comedy and its new questions about what people are searching for, how the results may affect them, and what it all may cost" ( Kirkus Reviews)
