  • A miraculous late-style masterpiece, the equal of any of [Thubron's] earlier works, which will cement his reputation as one of our greatest prose writers in any genre... The Amur River is not just a literary triumph in itself, it is also a demonstration of the continued power of great travel writing

    William Dalrymple, Daily Telegraph
  • A fascinating read packed with curiosities and incident

    The Times
  • Thubron's journey makes for a gripping read...with fascinating political insight

    Sunday Times
  • Excellent... Thubron's observations are perceptive and lightly delivered

    Literary Review
  • [Thubron] summons both landscape and people with nuanced sensitivity... Here is a writer at the top of his game, one from whom those toiling on the lower slopes have much to learn
