This is truly subtle, masterful writing that has so much to offer...I thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm a sucker for fiction that forces a reader to think.
Possibly Sullivan's best work yet and I'm hoping to see it featured on awards shortlists.
Sullivan uses the tired tropes of paranormal fantasy and high-tech SF to explore ideas of morality and identity, and has produced a work of startling originality
this is science-fiction at its most surreal...the premise is brilliant
Uncanny and ambitious
Conspiracies galore, questions about the nature of identity, brilliant evocative writing never detract from the unceasing pace of Sullivan's, a past Arthur C. Clarke Ward winner, futuristic fantasy thriller. Heralds a major new series
Occupy Me keeps the pages turning and the wheels of thought whirring. It's a psychedelic experience, a wacky tapestry of an idea
It's completely bonkers, incredibly brave and well worth exploring at ease. Occupy Me is bound to be one of the literary treats of 2016 so make sure you don't miss it.
Occupy Me is very funny and highly unusual, not least of which is having a main character who isn't just an angel, but a middle aged, black lesbian. It's highly imaginative, difficult to categorise, and frequently bizarre. But what it has done is inspired me to go and read Sullivan's other work because like Lauren Beukes, her stories certainly stand out out from the pack.
Occupy Me is a lot of fun to read, there are so many concepts and ideas thrown into the mix and yet it all works really well. The character interactions can be hilarious at times especially when they are trying to explain away the fantastic or when they are at cross purposes to each other. Tricia Sullivan has written a vivid story that is absorbing from start to finish.
I had tremendous fun reading Occupy Me. It's a novel crammed with ideas. Sullivan's breathless prose... explores the nature of time and reality, cooperate greed and whether kindness can be engineered.
