Astonishing the Gods

A Novel

“Amazing. I think this is as close as you can get to reliving the experience of a bedtime story.” —The Guardian

“Illuminating…The episodic structure and beautiful poetic language perfectly complement the hero’s journey. The narrative’s kaleidoscopic nature has a transformative effect on the reader, making it deserving of a cult classic status.” —Publishers Weekly

“This slim but heady allegorical fable…will doubtless appeal to many of the readers who have made Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist a perennial success…a sumptuous new wisdom text.” —Library Journal

“Colorful and detailed yet somehow ethereal…a pithy allegorical novel about the power of the unseen.” Foreword Reviews

“A modern-day classic.” —Evening Standard

“Beautiful. A new creation myth.” —Daily Telegraph

“I just finished Ben Okri’s Astonishing the Gods and, quite frankly, I was awed. What a strange, unique, and enchanting book it is.” —Nick Cave, singer, songwriter, and coauthor of Faith, Hope and Carnage
