Anmeldelser

«Mitchell deftly sketches each character to such a compelling extent that you become totally immersed»

Entertainment Weekly

«Gripping and innovative»

New York Times

«An extraordinarily assured novel of global reach and millennial ambition»

Esquire

«This first novel displays a cool and intelligent virtuosity and an amazingly copious imagination»

Daily Telegraph

«One of the best first novels I've read in a long time . . . I couldn't put it down»

A. S. Byatt, Mail on Sunday

«Demands to be read and re-read . . . an astonishing debut»

Independent

«A remarkable novel by a young writer of remarkable talent»

Observer

«Engaging and engrossing»

Daily Mail

«Fabulously atmospheric and wryly perceptive . . . a huge new talent»

Guardian

«A remarkable first novel»

Time Out

«The most breathtaking debut I've ever read»

Sue Perkins, Daily Express

«A brilliantly constructed novel which you must read for yourself . . . truly a masterpiece»

Books of the Year, Vector

«Tautly plotted and with the page-turning qualities of a thriller, Ghostwritten is an intoxicating read and is in danger of giving the post-modern novel a good name»

Irish Times

«Astonishingly accomplished»

The Times

«Full of sly and sometimes beautiful surprises . . . worth a dozen of the morally anorexic first novels that regularly come down the pipe. Ghostwritten may conclude with the end of the world, but I, for one, am hoping for more»

Daniel Mendelsohn, New York Magazine

«A dazzling piece of work»

Washington Post

«Elegantly composed, gracefully plotted and full of humour . . . It recalls Tolstoy and Dostoevsky in its emotional scope and its ambitions. Like the great Russians, Mitchell makes us feel that more is at stake than individual lives, although it's by individual lives that pain and loss are measured»

Los Angeles Times
