Reviews

  • Witty, touching without ever being sentimental, hugely enjoyable

    David Nicholls
  • It's incredibly moving. The idea of believing in everything and nothing in the same moment. The female friendships were beautifully drawn

    Billie Piper
  • Ghosts is an absolute knock-out. Wickedly funny and, at turns, both cynical and sincere, Dolly Alderton's voice feels like your very favourite friend. I devoured it

    Taylor Jenkins-Reid
  • A sharp-eyed debut . . . Tests the boundaries of what used to be called chick-lit

    Guardian
  • There are sharply skewered set pieces, but also tender observations . . . a promising, deftly written, often entertaining and poignant debut novel

    Sunday Times
  • Loved it from start to finish, really laugh out loud: well-written, packed with ideas and observations and so engaging I can't put it down

    Philippa Perry
  • I absolutely adored it. So clever and funny and such a treat. The pages really did turn themselves

    Cathy Rentzenbrink
  • A stunning achievement: I was laughing out loud, doing my best a few minutes later not to burst into tears and then angry that it had all come to an end. So moving, so funny, so beautifully written and so poignant. Brilliant

    Stanley Tucci
  • Utter BRILLIANCE. Dolly is such an insightful commentator on love, longing, friendship and emotional landscapes. I absolutely LOVED it!

    Marian Keyes
  • Dolly Alderton's writing is incredibly intimate, tender, and observant. Ghosts is a fantastic novel about friendship, family, and love
