"Superbly evocative prose... The novel's vision of Europe is acute and alive, vivid in its moral complexities" New York Times Book Review "Brilliant...a meditation on the intoxications of violence and the redemptive power of love" New Yorker "Compassionate without resorting to sentimentality, clever without ever losing its honesty, an undisguised novel of ideas which is also Ian McEwan's most human work" Times Literary Supplement "Powerful... Unforgettable" Sunday Telegraph
