Anmeldelser

«An astounding book...without doubt one of the finest novels I have read for years»

The Times

«Little short of a masterpiece...Fizzing with wit and energy, Kate Atkinson's hilarious novel made me laugh and cry»

Daily Mail

«A blinding debut from a Yorkshire mother-of-two who could be Alan Bennett's baby sister...straight-up simplicity veils the depth, poignancy and poetry of her story»

Time Out

«A first novel written so fluently and wittily that I sailed through it as though blown by an exhilarating wind; a first novel with a touch so light I only felt its truth and sadness after I'd finished it. It lifted my spirits enormously. I loved it.»

Margaret Forster

«Enchanting. It hops with sprightly omniscence from past to future and back again»

The Sunday Times

«A really gripping, emotionally satisfying family saga written with warmth and wit. I've re-read it countless times.»

Red

«Delivers its jokes and its tragedies as efficiently as Dickens...outrageously funny on almost every page...will dazzle readers for years to come.»

Hilary Mantel, London Review of Books

«A debut novel of astonishing confidence and skill...Acutely observant, overflowing with good jokes, it is the work of an author who loves her characters and sets them playing with gleeful energy»

Kunders vurdering

-Ikorn – 12.02.2007

– Ruby er yngstebarnet i Lennox-familien, og lever i skyggen av sine storesøstre Patricia og Gillian. Vi får høre alt om familiehistorien hennes på morssiden, helt fra oldemoren Alice gjennom bestemoren Nell og moren Bunty, for ikke å nevne diverse andre slektninger, fram til Ruby selv og den mørke hemmeligheten som ligger som en skygge over familien. Dette er en bok utenom det vanlige, historien fortelles på en livlig måte og gjennom kapittel-lange "fotnoter" blir vi kjent med hele familien til Ruby og deres håp og drømmer. Den er lett og engasjerende å lese, men tar samtidig for seg dype temaer som jakten på kjærlighet og lykke og klarer å balansere dette godt. Kort sagt en over gjennomsnittet god bok.
