"A goodbye letter to the world and all of its wonder and terror."
—Cory Doctorow, boingboing.net
"Some of the funniest writing Banks has ever produced. A writer who has the rare gift of being infallibly entertaining."
"It's the testimony of a writer refusing to go quietly, Iain Banks has got the last word."
—The Sunday Times
is a satisfying end to a fine writing career."—Sunday Express
is an honorable finale to an exciting career."—The Guardian
"This is a novel that's perched at the dangerous edge of things, looking down. It's an urgent novel and an important one."
"Iain Banks's gift to us over nearly 30 books, a brilliant, piercing depiction of just how funny, stupid, pointless, infuriating, glorious, mind-bending, and inane life can be. And that's why he's been a constant inspiration to me as a novelist and a human being."
—Independent on Sunday
"A powerful and affecting book. The Quarry
reaches a pitch of emotion that only a reader made of granite could read without tears."—Sunday Herald
is...a novel shot through with Banks's trademark humor, political engagement, and hope."—The Times, Book of the Week
"In Banks we had a novelist of supreme subtlety and one who...had an irrepressible sense of fun, that is evident on every page of The Quarry
"A compelling, raw book. Well-told, like all his books."
"The book should comfort his fans in many ways, not least the rather hopeful ending and the almost belligerent way in which Guy remains true to his beliefs. Iain Banks may have just missed seeing his last book on the shelves but he can rest safe in the knowledge that what he has bequeathed us is something very fitting for such a stand-out career."
—Express (4 Star Review)
"This is vintage Banks, full of heart, black comedy, and vitriol, and is sure to delight his fans."
"With its deadpan teen narrator and stern rural backdrop, it is hard not to find in The Quarry
a trace of Banks's enduring debut novel The Wasp Factory
and with it the closing of a literary circle... The Quarry
is a fitting valediction."—TLS, review
"Banks was an extraordinary writer; in straight literary fiction and in his science fiction novels, he engaged the world with passion... For good reason, Banks's many fans will devour this book."
