Reviews

Enthralling. Emotionally gripping . . . ordinary people struggling against a city's beautiful indifference, and clinging on for dear life * Daily Telegraph *
Beautifully crafted, gripping, moving, enlightening. Sure to be one of the best historical novels of the year * Time Out *
Scrupulous, pitch-perfect. With heart-pounding force, Dunmore builds up a double narrative of suspense * Sunday Times *
Magnificent, brave, tender . . . with a unique gift for immersing the reader in the taste, smell and fear of a story * Independent on Sunday *
A masterpiece. An extraordinarily powerful evocation of a time of unimaginable fear. We defy you to read it without a pounding heart and a lump in your throat * Grazia *
A beautifully written and deeply moving story about fear, loss, love and honesty amid the demented lies of Stalin's last days. I literally could not put it down -- Antony Beevor
Dunmore chillingly evokes the atmosphere of Soviet suspicion, where whispered rumours and petty grievances metastasise into lies and denunciation. A gripping read * Daily Mail *
Meticulous, clever, eloquent. An absorbing and thoughtful tale of good people in hard times * Guardian *
A remarkably feeling, nuanced novel that satisfies the head as well as the heart. This does not read like a retelling of history, but like a draught of real life. With her seemingly small canvas, Dunmore has created a universe * Sunday Herald *
Dunmore's genius lies in her ability to convey the strange Soviet atmosphere of these very Soviet stories using the most subtle of clues * Spectator *
Storytelling on a grand scale * The Times *
