Review this Book

Pi Lightfoot & The Seven Tsunamis


'Based on a true story... It just hasn't happened yet.'

Imagine the ultimate app: a futuristic quantum supercomputer that secretly connects you to an alien Internet! Now your avatar can explore the entire universe – riding waves of code thousands of feet high – on rocket powered surfboards – faster than the speed of light!

Meet Pi Lightfoot… When she and science collide – there’s nothing in the world that can’t happen!

What a fantastically enthralling, charming, funny and frolicsome read. In Pi Lightfoot, Nick Gilador has created a genuinely original and unforgettable hero. Hugely recommended.” – Stephen Fry, actor, author, broadcaster.

Pi Lightfoot is my kinda gal. Feisty and funny... I was gripped!” – Julian Clary, comedian, actor, author.

Young readers will enjoy the adventures of Pi Lightfoot tremendously, it’s the kind of book I would have absolutely loved as a child. She is a terrific heroine.” – Emma Pass, author of Acid and The Fearless.

Madeleine Engle said: "You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children."

Pi Lightfoot might be the case. It takes you on a whirlwind adventure in a world of alien supercomputers. There are perils to avoid, friends to save and mysteries to solve. Now that I have read the second instalment, I have grown to love the characters: fearless Pi, loyal Gaia, word-mixing klutzy Leo, kind and fatherly HB, and my favourite super smart and super cool Andomime. The Inverse is full of fantastic objects such as pinwheels (would make my morning routine so much easier) and spherooms (yes, ceilings are a total waste of space) as well as powerful and mysterious elements.
Some parts of the book were more abstract and difficult to follow (I am a grown-up, after all). Others were written in such a wonderfully tangible way that I almost felt the cold drops and acrid tang of the Leviathan wave.

Looking forward to reading the third part of Pi's adventures.
