Review:

"A major work of mounting tensions in which the human mind is the guinea-pig... Mr Fowles has taken a big swing at a difficult subject and his hits are on the bull's eye" (Sunday Telegraph)

"A deliciously toothsome celebration of wanton story-telling" (Sunday Times)

"A splendidly sustained piece of mystification" (Financial Times)

"One of those that's best read as a teenager, but once read you'll never forget it" (Katy Guest The Independent)

"Suspend disbelief and enjoy a master storyteller" (Christie Hickman Sunday Express)
