Rezension:

"When I say that ["Decoded"] is excellent, I am referring both to its remarkable literary qualities and to the fact that it demands to be read in a single sitting." --Alai, Mao Dun Literature Prize-winning author of "Red Poppies
"

"The illogical nature of destiny, the brilliance and fragility of genius, and circumstances that bind people together irrevocably as they drift through the darkness of the night all form part of Mai Jia's strange and mysterious novel."--"Beijing Evening News "

"Between the thrills of pulp fiction and those novels which come to be considered classics, there are boundaries and lines which, for many writers, are difficult to cross, and may take a lifetime (if ever) to realize. Mai Jia's achievement is that he has overcome that barrier with steady and assured strides. The footprints he has left behind form an ingenious, secretive literary treasure map." --Wong Kar-wai, director of "The Grandmaster"
