  • "Tolstoy's prose is majestic, his pace measured, his characters unflinchingly true to life, his message bleak"

    Guardian
  • "The simplicity and power of this novella, the story of the terrible encroachment of death on a shallow man spiritually unprepared for it, has staggered millions"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "I don't read Russian, but I think Tolstoy's writing comes over whatever translation you read...he wrote the great, terrible story The Death of Ivan Illyich"

    Redmond O'Hanlon, Independent
  • "For me, the best insight into the process of dying comes from Leo Tolstoy in his short story, The Death of Ivan Ilych, which examines the life and death of the most ordinary man"

    Oliver James, Mail on Sunday
