Reviews

Magnificent - deeply moving * Sunday Times *
With Birdsong Faulks has produced a mesmerizing story of love and war... This book is so powerful that as I finished it I turned to the front to start again * Sunday Express *
Amazing... I have read it and re-read it and can think of no other novel for many, many years that has so moved me or stimulated in me so much reflection on the human spirit * Daily Mail *
An overpowering and beautiful novel... Ambitious, outrageous, poignant, sleep-disturbing, Birdsong is not a perfect novel, just a great one -- Simon Schama * New Yorker *
Engrossing, moving, and unforgettable * The Times *
This is a great love story -- Prue Leith * Daily Express *
One of the finest novels of the last forty years * Mail on Sunday *
This is literature at its very best: a book with the power to reveal the unimagined, so that one's life is set in a changed context. I urge you to read it * Time Out *
So powerful is this recreated past that you long to call Birdsong perfect * The Times *
A powerful novel that is difficult to put down * Independent on Sunday *
