Reviews

  • I read Richard Hughes’ A High Wind in Jamaica this year and felt breathless with shock and awe… Appallingly dark story…dreadfully funny.

    Meg Rosoff, Independent
  • A thrillingly good book

    Martin Amis
  • On one level it's an exciting adventure story with great storms and earthquakes, terrific animals, unruly children and some dubious pirates. What more, when young, could you want? But all this coexists with another narrative, darker and more sophisticated, complex and tragic. You can read this book over again and have read a different novel.

    Michael Holroyd, Guardian
  • A hot draught of mad, primal fantasy and poetry

    Rebecca West
  • A fascinating study in child psychology

    New York Times
