Already one of my favourite books of the year... There's palace intrigue, a slow-burn enemies-to-lovers plot, sassy footnotes, and also there are mammoths! It's a total delight from start to finish
Few writers combine such warmth and heart with such consummate skill as Natasha Pulley... Reading her is both a joyful and profound experience - and The Mars House is her most daring, ambitious, and exciting book yet'
Simply unputdownable - hilarious, ingenious, and full of warmth, The Mars House asks important questions about what it means to be human, and doesn't shy away from nuanced conversations about immigration, climate breakdown, and augmented reality. Plus it has talking mammoths and a very clever twist. What's not to love?
Pulley has wrapped an enemies-to-lovers, fake-marriage romance in a fascinating sci-fi world package... Magnetic... Charming... Readers will have incredible fun reading about this slow-burn romance, the itch of two creepy background mysteries, and a delightful scene involving judgmental mammoths
This is a book about language, how new society subcultures form, gender, mammoths, and space... I want to live inside Natasha Pulley's brain - and I would happily read a thousand more pages set on Mars. The incredible arranged marriage queer romance was just an added bonus. Book of the year for me
Pulley astonishes in this thorny and addictive sci-fi romance
Readers will appreciate all the delightful details of worldbuilding, character arcs, and slow romantic tension. Exquisitely layered and entertaining, Pulley's latest novel is a queer tale of planetary refugees, politics, and populist views (and mammoths).''Readers will appreciate all the delightful details of worldbuilding, character arcs, and slow romantic tension.
