“Featherbones is an ethereal love song to a city by the sea. Thomas Brown’s beautiful novel depicts a liminal world of statues, drownings and winged creatures. It’s also a real page turner. I love this book.” – Rebecca Smith, author of The Bluebird Café

“This is an exquisitely written novel; deft, poised, and with a writer’s ear for the rhythms of the world around us. Featherbones does the always-difficult job of making the strange familiar, while asking us to attend again to the things we think we know.” – William May, author and lecturer

“I loved the use of language, I loved the story and above all I loved the constant sensation that I was walking on the top of the dividing wall between reality and dream and imagination and past and present and future. I want to live on that wall for the rest of my life.” – Bookrazy blog

“If you enjoy reading books that make you think, and make you wonder at the author’s ability to turn every day ordinary into something else, something a bit more extraordinary, then I recommend this book to you.” – Ionia Martin, Readful things

“Thomas Brown writes such beautiful prose; Featherbones is worth reading for this alone. However there is much more to appreciate – a fine, thought-provoking novel.” – Angela Thomas, Fantastic Books

“Bleak but beautiful, reminds me of Patrick Ness’ A Monster Calls.” – Patty Dohle, Bookseller

“Beautiful, poetic writing about the everyday lives of Felix and Michael. Walking in the grey rain, through the grey city, birds are encountered and become almost magical. This one will make you think.” – Polly Halicki, reviewer
