  • Forster's tightly-focused, first-person narrative is utterly compelling and painfully convincing

    Daily Mail
  • Forster's first person account of Lou's emotional exhaustion, her bleached anger at the ruthless egotism of her husband's grief, and her inability to discern the same essential failing in her own bitter self protectiveness is an impressive feat of observation and imagination

    The Times
  • Forster's scrupulous inspection of the clammy and repressive intricacies of domestic life is, as in so much of her discomforting fiction, a serious pleasure to read

    Sunday Times
  • Superb... Forster understands the power of that left unsaid... an ordinary woman's story is made heroic by a writer's art

    Sunday Express
  • Over is a relentless, exacting novel that pushes into the heart of grief and suggests some narrow routes to recovery
