  • Knausgaard retains the ability to lock you, as if in a tractor beam, into his storytelling... Knausgaard is among the finest writers alive.

    New York Times
  • Grippingly crafted storytelling... prose that is keenly aware of the value of suspense and surprise... captivating... [The Morning Star] has that beguiling, elusively compulsive quality that Knausgaard seems to have made his own.

  • Knausgaard's brilliant storytelling is as bright as the celestial body from which the book takes its title.

    Roddy Brooks, Independent
  • Knausgaard's sentences, in Martin Aitken's translation, are both plainly direct and lyrically, emotionally elevated . . . Symphonic.

    Heidi Julavits, New York Times Book Review
  • Fascinating, provocative... [The Morning Star] recalls the best of My Struggle: that swooping interplay between the general and the specific.

    Claire Lowdon, Times Literary Supplement
  • A masterpiece, heavenly and diabolical in equal measure.

    Emily Watkins, i
  • A compelling mystery.

    Mail on Sunday
  • The familiar, addictive Knausgaardian evocation of the minutiae of everyday life is still here, but now comes wrapped in a story far pacier and more action-packed than My Struggle.

    Daily Telegraph
  • The narrators' stories converge and build towards an unexpected, brilliantly handled and devastating conclusion.

  • [Knausgaard] reveals himself to be a surprise master of the uncanny... The storytelling gift that kept readers enthralled by My Struggle remains powerful. Like Stephen King, another inspiration here, Knausgaard stays shoulder-close to his characters... This is a thoughtful, highly readable novel, packed with ideas and exciting flourishes.
