Eloquent * Guardian *
Movingly relevant * Irish Times *
Mak is good on the pulse of the village, its ebb and flow as people come and go, but running throughout the book is a genuine anger that this is a meritorious way of life we are too eager to dismiss -- Lesley McDowell * Independent of Sunday *
A big subject, neatly summarized, in which he also studies the changes in people's values that take place when they move to big cities, and the role now played by incomers in village life -- Alastair Mabbott * Herald *
Nowhere has the silent rural revolution been described more beautifully and with mroe feeling * Volkskrant *
