Reviews

Grips from start to finish . . . Munich captures the mood of the times: the suspicion and the fear, the political intrigue, the swagger of the Nazi machine and the widespread elation at the mistaken belief that war has been averted. Superb. * Mail on Sunday *
Harris's cleverness, judgment and eye for detail are second to none . . . his research is so impeccable that he could have cut all the spy stuff and published Munich as a history book. Harris's treatment of Britain's most maligned prime minister is so powerful, so persuasive, that it ranks among the most moving fictional portraits of a politician that I have ever read * Sunday Times *
An intelligent thriller . . . with exacting attention to historical detail * The Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR *
A gripping account of the negotiations between Britain and Germany in 1938 before the outbreak of war * Guardian *
Atmospheric and fast-paced literary thriller . . . [it] grips from start to finish . . . Superb * Mail on Sunday *
Unputdownable to the point of being dangerous: the house could have been on fire while I was reading and I wouldn't have noticed * Sunday Express *
Harris makes the reader gasp at every turn, with a truly moving portrayal of Chamberlain as a man who did the wrong thing for the right reason * Daily Express, BOOKS OF THE YEAR *
A brilliantly constructed spy novel set amid the politicking of Chamberlain's last-ditch negotiations with Hitler * Observer *
A tantalising addition to the inexhaustible game of "what if"? * Guardian *
A wonderful tale of personal relationships and political drama...This is a very, very good read * Spectator, BOOKS OF THE YEAR *
I enjoyed romping through Robert Harris' Munich * Evening Standard, BOOKS OF THE YEAR *
Taut and finely paced novel . . . superbly observed . . . it is hard not to break out in a cold sweat just reading it....The details of railway carriages, hotel rooms, 10 Downing Street and even the Fuhrerbau in Berlin are faultless . . . an utterly compelling and fantastically tense historical thriller by a writer at the very top of his game. * Literary Review *
What distinguishes Munich is the subtlety with which it uses the formulaic elements of the genre to explore the ethics of information and functions of bureaucracy * New Statesman *
Fascinating . . . Seamlessly weaving his fictional tale into the real events of September 1938...Harris has once again shown himself to be a master storyteller * BBC History Magazine *
A novel of ideas and a gripping thriller... Harris is a marvellously compelling story-teller * Scotsman *
With moral subtlety as well as storytelling skill, Harris makes us regret the better past that never happened - while mournfully accepting the bitter one that did * Financial Times *
A fantastically entertaining historical novel that you won't want to put down until you finish . . . For me, this is a better novel than Fatherland, which posited the 'what if Hitler was still Fuhrer in 1964?' scenario. It is altogether more grounded and serious, but equally enjoyable * Nudge *
Exerts a powerful grip * The Arts Desk *
It's hard to imagine how history can be told better * Sport Newspaper *
Lovely details. Clever Twists. Superb. * Evening Standard *
This novel is gripping from start to finish * Waitrose Weekend *
