Reviews & Praise

[A] terrific sci-fi thriller... fans of Robert Heinlein open to more nuanced characterizations will be delighted.

—Publishers Weekly (★ starred review)

“An astonishing novel! Providence is Philip K. Dick and William Gibson fueled by pure adrenaline (with a bit of Spielberg and Ridley Scott thrown in). The brilliant, unstoppable imagination of Max Barry glows on every page of this action-filled, yet emotionally resonant, tale. It will keep you riveted from first page till last. I read it in one sitting and I guarantee you’ll do the same.”

—Jeffery Deaver, bestselling author of The Bone Collector

“I could not put Providence down until I’d finished it in one thrilling sitting. This is science fiction at its best—a ship so believably alive and characters so determined, flawed, and compelling that you’ll forget you’re not also part of the crew.”

—Peng Shepherd, author of The Book of M

Providence is an absolute treat. Pulls the trick of being both irrepressibly old-school sci-fi and creepingly relevant to the data-driven future.”

—Austin Grossman, author of Soon I Will Be Invincible

“Action-packed and unsettling, Providence is a sleekly-written parable about the absurdity of war—and the deeply human urge to destroy everything we don't understand, whether it comes from a distant planet or right here on Earth.”

—Annalee Newitz, author of Autonomous and The Future of Another Timeline
