Reviews

  • Vivid, richly imaginative, hilarious and frightening by turns

    Observer
  • Huge, exhilarating, loving and detailed eruption of a novel...an utterly intoxicating display of novelistic elan...big and joyous, literary and accessible...storytelling at its buoyant best

    The Scotsman
  • Wonderfully eloquent and forceful Kate Atkinson goes at the same pace in her second novel as she did in her first...welcome back, wild north-easter...brilliant and engrossing

    Evening Standard
  • Vivid and intriguing...fizzles and crackles along...a tour de force

    Independent
  • Part ghost story, part murder mystery, this is an exquisitely written, literary novel that reads as compellingly as any thriller

    Cosmopolitan
  • A stunner of a second novel...a gutsy book, wrenched from the heart and written with tremendous force, immersing you in its strange, eccentric world

    Marie Claire
  • The quirky imagination, subversive humour and instinct for domestic chaos that Atkinson displayed in her first novel...are rampantly evident again
