Enduring Love Reviews


"A page-turner, with a plot so engrossing that it seems reckless to pick the book up in the evening if you plan to get any sleep that night" -- Alain de Botton * Daily Mail *
"Taut with narrative excitement and suspense...a novel of rich diversity that triumphantly integrates imagination and intelligence, rationality and emotional alertness" * Sunday Times *
"He is the maestro at creating suspense: the particular, sickening, see-sawing kind that demands a kind of physical courage from the reader to continue reading" * New Statesman *
"A novel of rich diversity" * Sunday Times *
"A virtuoso display" * Observer *
