Rezension:

...One of the paciest, easiest to read novels you could imagine... mesmerising: a thorough work-out for the head and heart that targets cognitive muscles you never knew you had. The Times The way the three stories mesh is a wonderful thing - suspense and intrigue in equal measure. Every so often it reminded me of Donna Tartt. Evening Standard Some novels are such good company that you don't want them to end; Tom Rachman knows this, and has pulled off the feat of writing one... All this amounts to a touching story of fallen idols, with brilliant insights into misplaced loyalties, and the power that adults have over children. Rachman has written a hugely likeable, even loveable book about the people we meet and how they shape us. Sunday Telegraph The detail is never overdone, the language is quirky and the novel's structure is beautifully managed The Lady Sprawling, ambitious second novel. New York Magazine When a Tom Rachman novel lands in the bookstores I stop living and breathing to devour it. It's hard to think of anyone who has a better grasp on the world we live in (and I mean, like, the entire planet) and can write about it with such entertainment and panache. Gary Shteyngart, author of Little Failure Rachman follows his best-selling debut (The Imperfectionists, 2010) with the haunting tale of a young woman reassessing her turbulent past ... Brilliantly structured, beautifully written and profoundly sad. Kirkus, Starred Review A bookshop-lover's book, and beautiful prose-lover's book, and read-it-all-in-one-weekend book. The New Republic The Imperfectionists is a splendid original, filled with wit and structured so ingeniously that figuring out where the author is headed is half the reader's fun. Janet Maslin, New York Times Even with all the flights of fancy and exotic locales, the characters in it are beautifully human ... After his much acclaimed 2010 debut, The Imperfectionists, Rachman uses this follow-up to prove he's a writer to watch. avclub.com Memorable for its melancholy warmth and its almost Dickensian sentimentality. The Sunday Times Ingenious... Mr. Rachman needs only a few well-drawn characters to fill a large canvas and an impressive swath of history. New York Times
