Pressestimmen"Haunting and compelling" The Times "McEwan, that master of the taciturn macabre, so organises his narrative that, without insisting anything, every turn and glimpse is another tightening of the noose" Observer "As always, McEwan manages his own idiom with remarkable grace and inventiveness; his characters are at home in their dreams and so is he" Guardian "Has you in its stranglehold from the first page to the last. McEwan has honed his prose style (always admirably spare) to tell his tale, and with all the skill of an accomplished torturer, he throws the occasional crumbs of comfort, as the tension becomes unbearable, only to snatch them away within moments" Listener "The Maestro" New Statesman
