• [A] marvellous novel

    Carmen Callil, Financial Times
  • Doyle has created a little masterwork, a gem of persuasive realism

    Tom Adair, Scotland on Sunday
  • An intoxicating sequel...a phenomenally rewarding read

    Euan Ferguson, Observer
  • Paula is a triumphantly original character, and her gently anarchic sense of humour, her ruthless honesty and the bursting sense of fun that permeates the book scotch any hint of sentimentalism. Doyle constructs his set-pieces and orders the narrative with a craft so unobtrustively elegant and clever that it demands a second reading. This is a splendid piece of work

    Independent on Sunday
  • [A] magnificent achievement
