You Shall Know Our Velocity! (Eggers) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
Headlong, heartsick and footsore....Frisbee sentences that sail, spin, hover, circle and come back to the reader like gifts of gravity and grace....Nobody writes better than Dave Eggers about young men who aspire to be, at the same time, authentic and sincere.
New York Times Book Review


You Shall Know Our Velocity! is the work of a wildly talented writer... Like Kerouac's book, Eggers's could inspire a generation as much as it documents it.
Los Angeles Times


There are some wonderful set-pieces here, and memorable phrases tossed on the ground like unwanted pennies from the guy who runs the mint.
Washington Post


The bottom line that matters is this: Eggers has written a terrific novel, an entertaining and imaginative tale
Boston Globe


Eggers ’s writing really takes off—his forte is the messy, funny tirade, stuffed with convincing pain and wry observations.
Newsday


Powerful.... Eggers’s strengths as a writer are real: his funny pitch-perfect dialog; the way his prose delicately captures the bumblebee blundering of Will’s thoughts; ... and the stream-water clarity of his descriptions.... There is genius here.... Who is doing more, single-handedly and single-mindedly, for American writing?
