  • Brilliant...a meditation on the intoxications of violence and the redemptive power of love

  • Superbly evocative prose... The novel's vision of Europe is acute and alive, vivid in its moral complexities

    New York Times Book Review
  • Compassionate without resorting to sentimentality, clever without ever losing its honesty, an undisguised novel of ideas which is also Ian McEwan's most human work
