The breadth of knowledge and content Man integrates into the narrative (art history, world geography, mythology, and literature) is ambitious and often captivating. This genre-spanning novel is rich, profound, and--for some readers--potentially overwhelming …. the meaningful connections Man draws between the various characters’ histories and global events are both enjoyable and educational.
’The Unconquered’ combines three of my favorite things: Canada, China, and Sci-Fi–and does so seamlessly (it also features a kick-ass female protagonist, another weakness of mine) … Highly recommended!
Now, this book is really something else: it's exciting, touching, funny and informative! …. I rarely laid eyes on a debut that was such a joy to read and such an intellectual challenge at the same time. And it definitely left me with an appetite to read and learn more from this excellent author!
