Reviews

  • "[Zusak] flings his readers straight into the deep end of his new vast, teeming novel . . . Warm and heartfelt . . . This is a tale of love, art and redemption; rowdy and joyous, with flashes of wit and insight, and ultimately moving."

    Kate Saunders, Times
  • "If The Book Thief was a novel that allowed Death to steal the show... [its] brilliantly illuminated follow-up is affirmatively full of life."

    Alfred Hickling, Guardian
  • "The wait is over."

  • "This vast novel is a feast of language and irony. There is sly wit on every page... it is hard not to fall a bit in love with it."

    Michael McGirr, Sydney Morning Herald
  • "Bridge of Clay has been more than a decade in the making, and it shows: The characters are clearly loved, and the artistry of language will leave you gasping at times."
