"It's an insightful looking into human behaviours and emotions through a non-human observer, essentially a lovely but dangerous romance with an insidious subplot full of future tech, action sequences and cinematic passages of so much depth and description it's bound to appeal to kids of about 14 and up . . . I thought it was absolutely fantastic." —Radio NZ
