9780224101998: The Children Act
Review:

"It is one most extraordinary, powerful, moving reading experiences of my life. It is an utterly remarkable novel, delicately balanced, perfectly crafted, beautifully written." (Alberto Manguel)

"Every word counts: one has the sense of a complicated piece of music played by a master soloist." (Christina Hardyment The Times)

"Fascinatingly complex and finally heartbreaking… A quite beautiful work of fiction." (John Sutherland The Times)

"A great writer. One of the most acute chroniclers of modern life and its discontents ... The Children Act is both gripping and highly topical…Entirely entrancing" (Andrew Marr)

"Prose of uncommon clarity, unshowiness and control … Masterly" (Kate Kellaway Observer)

"Another notable volume from one of the finest writers alive." (Ron Charles Washington Post)

"A masterclass in the power of precision and restraint … McEwan is brilliant on the details that form the backdrop to public and private tragedy." (Christina Patterson The Sunday Times)

"Although thrillingly close to the child within us, McEwan nonetheless writes for, and about, the grown-ups. In a climate that breeds juvenile cynicism, we more than ever need his adult art." (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"McEwan brings to the analysis of justice a distinctive combination of literary skill, empathy and legal knowledge… A welcome addition to the class [of novels about judges]." (David Pannick QC The Times)

"A classic McEwan novella, swift and compelling, asking to be read in a single sitting despite its 200-odd pages… He makes it look simple yet few other writers have anything like his mastery of such prose… So skillfully composed and fluently performed, it’s a pleasure from start to finish, one not to be interrupted." (David Sexton Evening Standard)

"A brave and enormously interesting subject." (Amanda Craig Independent on Sunday)

"A dazzling tapestry… Another magnificent work by McEwan, important and meticulously crafted." (James McNair National)

"A svelte novel as crisp and spotless as a priest’s collar." (Ron Charles Washington Post)

"Pacy and gripping, with a fascinating premise… McEwan skillfully brings complexity and depth to the characters." ( Stylist)

"A compelling moral dilemma [with] a moving and heartfelt denouement." ( Tatler)

"A class act by one of our finest novelists." (Viv Groskop Red)

"Shows McEwan as a master of fiction." (Olivia Cole GQ)

"Beautifully told with pared-down emotional honesty, this 13th novel from the Booker Prize-winner is fiercely clever and incredibly moving." ( Hello!)

"A gripping new novel which brings into question morality, religion and the very nature of life itself." ( Hunts Post)

"McEwan masterfully weaves a gripping personal story." (Peter Donaldson Gazette (Colchester))

"I feel that both Fiona and the boy somehow sort of transcended naturalistic character" (Mark Ravenhill Saturday Review)

"Emotionally wrenching and visceral." ( Elle)

"Gripping." ( Mail on Sunday)

"A short novel of great subtlety and tenderness." ( UK Human Rights)

"Executed in his trademark elegant prose and is evidently meticulously researched." (Carla McKay Daily Mail)

"Incredibly moving, intriguing and quite perfect as piece of fiction." ( Bath Chronicle)

"Yet another worthy addition to his canon." ( EasyJet Traveller)

"The small morning scenes between husband and wife are superb." ( Catholic Herald)

"Moving, sad and delicate." (Joanna Kavenna Prospect)

"True to life [as well as] being well-written." (Catherine Taylor, family solicitor Latest Homes)

Review:

"Compulsively readable... McEwan’s prose keeps its cutting edge and his books are the ones the reading public still crave… A masterly balance between research and imagination… One feels an immediate pleasure in returning to prose of uncommon clarity, unshowiness and control" ( The Times)

"Classic McEwan… It’s a pleasure from start to finish, one not to be interrupted" ( Guardian)

"A powerful, humane novel" ( Evening Standard)

"One of the finest writers alive" ( Sunday Times)

"A finely written, engaging read… Poignant, challenging and lyrical" ( Sunday Express)

"A class act by one of our finest novelists." (Viv Groskop Red)
