"Codex takes its place on the shelf of self-referential, bibliophilic page turners like The Name of the Rose, Possession and A Case of Curiosities, and it's as entertaining as any of them." - New York Times
"...well-orchestrated... intelligent [and] enjoyable" - Publishers Weekly
"Alluring and meticulous. Replete with a sexy duchess, a jaded academic ... and a shadowy programmer." - Entertainment Weekly
"A genuine treat with its sneaky plot and richly-textured storytelling. Moves so fast you won't realize how smart it is." - San Francisco Journal
"A wealth of diverting book lore and fanciful arcana conveyed in engaging, accessible prose helps to make this an engrossing, if ultimately unsatisfying, read." - Library Journal
"As in cyberfantasy, there are side trips and narrow escapes and dwarfish types with helpful tips, and if Time book critic Grossman weren't so smooth and dry, one might think about hitting esc. Sophisticated, scholarly fun and games." - Kirkus Reviews
