Reviews of The Amazing Absorbing Boy
- Alex Good, The Star, 24 January 2010
- "At heart it is a rich exploration of the immigrant psychodrama of attraction and repulsion, welcome and paranoia, perception and misunderstanding."
- Mark Sampson, Quill & Quire, January 2010
- "Line for line, Maharaj is a superb stylist, but on the whole this book lacks evidence of planning or a strong vision."
- Donna Bailey Nurse, Globe and Mail, 11 February 2010
- "Maharaj does offer an exhilarating interpretation of immigrant experience."
- Corey Redekop, Shelf Monkey, 5 April 2010
- "The Amazing Absorbing Boy is a work easier to admire than to like."
