¨Sob a pele¨ não passa de uma regurgitação atroz, entorpecente e ridiculamente chamada de livro. Quando um cara tenta penetrar a protagonista, ela usa uma lâmpada e um espelho para descobrir a sua falta de genitália feminina! E isso é apenas o começo. Gosto de coisas tipo ficção científica/terror. Mas não há aqui realmente nada de assustador. Ela dirige muito. Ela anda muito de moto. Uma vez cai e é ajudada a se levantar. E outra vez come um pedaço de bolo de chocolate com cobertura branca - e engasga com ele. E de vez em quando fica só de calcinha. A classificação de ficção científica significa que ela deve ser uma alienígena (acho) que assume a identidade de uma mulher terrena e então passa o tempo pegando homens na rua. Mas - que faz ela na realidade? Liquidifica-os? E por que faz isso? Não fica muito claro para mim,… (lisätietoja)

Loved it. I was consistently amazed at how Faber kept coming up with new ways to describe the world of 19th Century London and Bethnal Green in particular. Complex, interesting characters, beautiful writing, and a story that moves you quickly through 800 pages.

Truly bizarre horror/scifi tale of female driver who picks up hitchhikers who to be fattened for slaughter and fed to denizens of another planet. Excellent writing, and compelling but unfortunate content such that I can recommend to no one. I am not a horror fan so those of you who are might be better informed by this review http://www.ralphmag.org/AW/under-skin.html

This is a book in the mode of Phantom Toll Booth- we have a kid born in Djibouti (Africa) but is now in England - shes an outcast, from the way she looks, to being adopted. As a result, she's a bit of a loner and observant. So of course, when letters start to go missing, she's the one that notices.... which sends her to a former teacher, who sends her to Liminus, a world next door to ours that is a bit odd.

The story actually reminds me of the Phantom Toll Booth, with language being twisted and turned into something. The mix of fonts also adds to the story, emphasizing the style of the building or village that Dhikilo is traveling through.

As an adult, I found it a bit predictable, but I suspect if I read this as a kid, I would have loved it.
