"[Ihimaera's] works are beautifully written, clever and humorous"
Jolene Williams, Bay of Plenty Times
. . . full of experimentation and literary derring-do . . . the show-stopper is the final, title story, 'The Thrill of Falling' . . . is quite brilliant, and the story a beautiful, lambent note on which to finish.
John McCrystal, Weekend Herald
. . . a great combination of the punchiness of a short story, along with more development of character and plot. Add that to Ihimaera's knack for creating characters that seem to come alive off the pages, and you end up with a book that I read in a couple of sittings because I enjoyed it so much.
