Reviews

  • A riveting read . . . with a corker of a twist.

    Telegraph
  • [I]mmersive and engaging.

    Guardian
  • V2 is a stunning achievement; a gripping page-turner that remains highly thought-provoking.

    Daily Express
  • An immersive thriller set against a tense historical backdrop . . . For all its pace - you will zip through it in no time - the rewards are in the meta-story. But Harris's deceptively effortless prose means you barely notice. The effect is one of total immersion: you can feel the cold, taste the bacon sandwiches and imagine the trolleys squeaking across the floor.

    Financial Times
  • Harris renders the historical detail with his customary verisimilitude.

    The Times
  • Harris's books are always supremely readable - he has practically trademarked the term 'master storyteller'.

    Observer
  • This is a lively read, as propulsive as the rockets of the title, and it masterfully captures the bleak, jaded atmosphere of the Second World War's death throes.

    Daily Express
  • Robert Harris has always been ingenious at finding ways to write about the Second World War [...] It's highly readable . . . thrillingly tense.

    S Magazine, Sunday Express
  • Harris finds the poetry in physics and the soul in engineering. He makes the V2s come to life as vividly as any of his human characters . . . His prose can be wonderfully vivid... Harris has the great gift of readability; there is no living novelist whose books I am likelier to gobble up in one sitting.

    Daily Telegraph
  • [An] astonishingly precise novel... With its tense plot and familiar characters, some readers may anticipate the novel's own parabolic curve. But this means it offers the satisfactions we expect. Spies and informers lurk. Period details are piquant, but not overdone . . . Above all there's suspense . . . V2 will keep you pinned on a compelling trajectory.
