MEDIA REVIEWS

Highly entertaining - Guardian Books of the Year

Gloriously readable and, at times, wickedly funny - Irish Times

Sweet Tooth takes the expectations and tropes of the Cold War thriller and ratchets up the suspense, while turning it into something else... A well-crafted pleasure to read, its smooth prose and slippery intelligence sliding down like cream - Independent

Sublime...impressive...rich and enjoyable - Financial Times

Riveting... Delicious... Gripping - Guardian

Usually, I find Ian McEwan's work rather dull and uncaptivating at times, however I would most definitely recommend this book to a friend (and in fact, have done!) - It seems rather long-winded at first, yet as... More
