Rezension:

Truly enthralling.. I simply adored this wonderful novel ( Jessie Burton - author of The Miniaturist)

I absolutely loved [The Versions of Us]. It's so elegantly and beautifully written... I was equally enthralled by each of the three versions...a really wonderful book. (Esther Freud)

both brilliant and astonishingly good ( Elizabeth Buchan)

We follow (Eva and Jim) as their lives spin out in three different ways and so, inevitably, Sliding Doors comparisons kick in. But this is its own book; deep, sensitive and without a hint of commercial compromise.. Just lovely. ( SAINSBURY'S MAGAZINE)

It's annoying when a book won't let you give it up. You put it to one side and think "maybe I will read that later" because you have more important things to do. And there it is the next day, in your hands, wide open, pulling you back in, just not letting you go... As a first novel this is quite an accomplishment. ( NEWBOOKSMAG)

It's hard to believe this is Laura Barnett's debut novel. It's so sophisticated and well put-together - I'm completely in awe of how Barnett managed to write not just one story, but three, and make them all work perfectly together. ( GIRL! REPORTER)

I recommend this book without reservation... This is a wonderful, exceptional book by Laura Barnett. I loved it. (Moira Please THE PERFECT WRITING RETREAT)

glorious... a book that I think will do incredibly well come its release ( A CASE FOR BOOKS)

Worth every tear rolling down my cheeks. It's a 2015 must-read! ( strupag.com)

Each version had its own moments that made me laugh and cry and I did find myself thinking about what my own different versions would be like. ( thepagesbetween.com)

In pieces having just finished Laura Barnett's The Versions of Us. Brilliant. ( @btwhizz)

The girl-meets-boy premise, but played out in three what-if trajectories over 60 years. Eva and Jim's path cross at Cambridge University in 1958 when he bike wobbles to avoid hitting a dog. We follow as their lives spin out in three different ways, and so, inevitably, Sliding Doors comparisons kick in. But this is its own book; deep, sensitive and without a hint of commercial compromise. 'With the tripartite structure I had space to be reflective, quiet and emotional - all the things my favourite writers do' says Laura. Just lovely. ( Sainsbury's Magazine)
