Pressestimmen"Darkly impressive" The Times "Marvellously creates the atmosphere of youngsters given that instant adulthood they all crave, where the ordinary takes on a mysterious glow and the extraordinary seems rather commonplace. It is difficult to fault the writing or the construction of this eerie fable" Sunday Times "An extremely assured, technically adept and compelling piece of work" Observer "A shocking book, morbid, full of repellant imagery - and irresistibly readable...The effect achieved by McEwan's quiet, precise and sensuous touch is that of magic realism - a transfiguration of the ordinary that has far stronger retinal and visceral impact than the flabby surrealism of so many experimental novels" New York Review of Books "It is difficult to fault the writing or the construction of this eerie fable" Sunday Times
