Rezensionen
"It's impossible to put down: devastating and devastatingly good, one of my top three children's novels of the year so far . . . A difficult story to pull off, but with his perfect pacing, lack of sentimentality and refusal to submit to a neat end, Boyne has won me over - all over again" The Times
"A remarkable feat . . . Compelling"
