• Anything J.M. Coetzee writes deserves our full attention…The Death of Jesus is full of truth, irreducible, tearfully moving to read

    David Sexton, Evening Standard, *Book of the Week*
  • Concludes the trilogy with force and heart… if The Death of Jesus strikes you in the right place, then you will read its cool, dry final sentences – as I did – with tears in your eyes

    John Self, The Times
  • Any new novel from Coetzee commands respect, and the final part of the trilogy is no exception… The Death of Jesus constantly challenges what we believe and why

    Max Davidson, Mail on Sunday
  • The Death of Jesus is a necessary read, casting a strange new light on one of the world’s greatest and most elusive novelists

    Doug Battersby, Financial Times
  • A phenomenon that arrives from out of nowhere and challenges our received ideas to breaking point ... a delicate, iridescent mystery

  • A formidably intelligent writer who synthesizes millennia of thought into intricate multilayered narratives

    Claire Lowdon, Times Literary Supplement
  • An extraordinary new novel… The Death of Jesus is the best in the series

    Leo Robson, New Statesman
  • Coetzee always writes with pace and precision. His otherworldly landscapes have a gritty, scuffed plausibility. Never overlook the deadpan comedy, either: he learned from Samuel Beckett, an early idol

    Boyd Tonkin, Spectator
  • A remarkable achievement by a writer whose evolution, at the age of 79, continues to surprise
