A triumph and Pachett's best book yet (Guardian)
Written with a wry grace and irony that reminded me of The Poisonwood Bible (another favourite). I like Patchett's Bel Canto - but I loved this (Joanna Trollope, Sunday Telegraph)
An absorbing novel, intelligent yet magical, that will keep you wondering until the very last page (Sunday Telegraph)
It pulls you into the book, has you standing in the jungle in the heat and sweat, as realistic as any computer-generated trickery, genuinely wondering what might happen next ... Just read it and be happy that such a writer as Patchett exists (The Times)
Something special and worth considering for all the literary prizes, festivals and reading groups going this year ... exhilarating (Daily Telegraph)
