Reviews

  • "A powerfully written, well-documented polemic reminding us of how 20 million humans were starved, murdered or totured to death by Uncle Joe"

    Daily Mail
  • "More than any of his contemporaries, Amis writes things that you want to remember and repeat: he is original"

    New Statesman
  • "Amis uses all the tricks of his well-mastered trade to make readable what is almost unreadable, indeed hardly bearable... A disturbing book...but a book I was very glad to have read"

    Financial Times
  • "Martin Amis' book will not date...it is wise, witty and saturated with saeva indignatio, the only adequate response to tyranny"

    Literary Review
  • "What's best about him is his style. He is never dull"

    Sunday Times
