Rezensionen
"Frighteningly clever. The haunting landscapes Dorrestein creates are as real as they are darkly fantastical." -Kirkus Reviews
"Just a remarkable book. Haunting characters, amazing voice, propulsive plot. I hope we see a lot more from Dorrestein. Count me among her fans" -KAREN JOY FOWLER "A stunning mixture of many genres. The criminal story provides popular, psychological, folkloric, parodic, and psychological hints of secret codes to solve the murder case" -American Book Review "An interesting study in how we intuitively know things aren't right and how we cope with the lies and subsequent trauma; we are not so much in control of events, as we like to think we are"-The Bookseller "The plot holds tightly together, tempting the reader further to uncover the secrets hidden in later pages. Highly recommended" -Dutch News "What particularly appeals-and where her strength lies-is the drive that Dorrestein gives her characters. Their survival spirit and courage are unlimited, and their loneliness is therefore all the more tangible" -De Volkskrant "A stunning mix of many genres" -American Book Review "A beautifully written family drama, with a hint of mystery-the writing is darkly atmospheric with an intense construction that works well and hooks you right in" -Liz Loves Books "A complex and unusual story that, whilst heart-rending, is never sentimental. Thought-provoking and engaging: a recommended read" -Never Imitate
