Longlisted for the 2020 Man Booker International Prize

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year

"Her most unsettling work yet - and her most realistic." (New York Times)

Named a Best Book of the Year by The New York Times, O, The Oprah Magazine, NPR, Vulture, Bustle, Refinery29, and Thrillist

A visionary novel about our interconnected present, about the collision of horror and humanity, from a master of the spine-tingling tale.

They've infiltrated homes in Hong Kong, shops in Vancouver, the streets of in Sierra Leone, town squares in Oaxaca, schools in Tel Aviv, bedrooms in Indiana. They're everywhere. They're here. They're us. They're not pets, or ghosts, or robots. They're real people, but how can a person living in Berlin walk freely through the living room of someone in Sydney? How can someone in Bangkok have breakfast with your children in Buenos Aires, without your knowing? Especially when these people are completely anonymous, unknown, unfindable.

The characters in Samanta Schweblin's brilliant new novel, Little Eyes, reveal the beauty of connection between far-flung souls - but yet they also expose the ugly side of our increasingly linked world. Trusting strangers can lead to unexpected love, playful encounters, and marvelous adventure, but what happens when it can also pave the way for unimaginable terror? This is a story that is already happening; it's familiar and unsettling because it's our present and we're living it, we just don't know it yet. In this prophecy of a story, Schweblin creates a dark and complex world that's somehow so sensible, so recognizable, that once it's entered, no one can ever leave.

it's interesting.

I found this book intriguing and not easy to explain to other people. It's sci-fi and yet not. Yes, the main part revolves around these little technological creatures, but it's closer to a study of human nature. I finished it in a day and a half. I rather enjoyed it and was disappointed when I had to pause the book.

Little Eyes review

Great story! I will certainly NEVER own an Alexa or anything like that now. This book had me sitting in my car listening for an hour after arriving yesterday. I enjoyed the different points of view and fragmented experiences that kept me engrossed.

Nothing happens

Great premise but boring
I’m sure this was hailed as some sort of work about the intrusion of technology. And it goes around the world. But after a few chapters it’s basically the same story with new characters. When you think something is going to happen it’s glossed over. Then it just ends. If there’s a plot, I couldn’t find it.
