Anmeldelser

«The Boys in the Boat is a triumph of great writing matched with a magnificent story. Daniel James Brown strokes the keyboard like a master oarsman, blending power and grace to propel readers toward a heart-pounding finish.»

Mitchell Zuckoff, author of <i>Lost in Shangri-La</i> and <i>Frozen in Time.</i>

«For this nautical version of Chariots of Fire, Brown crafts an evocative, cinematic prose … studded with engrossing explanations of rowing technique and strategy, exciting come-from-behind race scenes, and the requisite hymns to "mystic bands of trust and affection" forged on the water.»

Publishers Weekly

«A story this breathtaking demands an equally compelling author, and Brown does not disappoint. The narrative rises inexorably, with the final 50 pages blurring by with white-knuckled suspense as these all-American underdogs pull off the unimaginable.»

The Seattle Times

«Like Laura Hillenbrand’s Seabiscuit and Michael Lewis’s Moneyball before it, The Boys in the Boat has all the ingredients for a film adaptation . . . a moving, enlightening and gripping tale.»

Financial Times

«Chariots of Fire – with oars [Brown’s] descriptions of the key races are exciting and dramatic, and it is impossible not to get wrapped up in the emotion»

The Times

«Daniel James Brown has written a robust, emotional snapshot of an era, a book you will recommend to your best friends.»

James Bradley, <i>Flags of Our Fathers, Flyboys, The Imperial Cruise</i>

«A fine-grained portrait of the Depression era . . . inspiring»
