"The narrative is brilliantly complex and beguiling, and the climax devastating" ( Independent)
"Clever, highly readable… Neither predictable nor surprising, the dénouement, when it finally happens, is shocking, moving and horribly convincing" ( Literary Review)
"A classic of its kind, brewing up enormous pathos undiluted by sentimentality" ( Daily Telegraph)
"A fierce, elliptical novel that's both a gripping philosophical thriller and a highly moving meditation on the emotion consequences of war" ( New York Times)
"Only the best historical fiction can make the journey into a distant time and return with a believable sense of how things really were. That Japrisot's book has done so is a mark of his great talent and experience as a writer" ( Washington Post)
