  • Wondrous...brilliantly inventive...dazzling. Not simply the most original novel I've read in years - it's also one of the best

    The Times
  • Exceptional by any standards. Both funny and deeply moving

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Outstanding. Heartening as well as richly entertaining. A stunningly good read

  • Superbly realised. A funny as well as a sad book. Brilliant

  • A remarkable book. An impressive achievement and a rewarding read

    Time Out
  • A magical book. It's one of those books that makes you feel as though you have been on an emotional rollercoaster.

    Carrie Grant, Sunday Express
  • Brilliantly empathetic. Believe the hype: a brilliant, heart-warming book

  • In telling a painful story in the voice of a 15-year-old boy with Asperger's, Haddon broadens ordinary minds and helps to understand how they work, too.

    Daily Telegraph
  • Mark Haddon's portrayal of an emotionally dissociated mind is a superb achievement. He is a wise and bleakly funny writer with rare gifts of empathy

    Ian McEwan
  • I have never read anything quite like Mark Haddon's funny and agonizingly honest book, or encountered a narrator more vivid and memorable. I advise you to buy two copies; you won't want to lend yours out

    Arthur Golden, author of 'Memoirs of a Geisha'
