MEDIA REVIEWS
"A masterpiece...a terrific novel, humming with ideas, knowing asides, shafts of sunlight, shouts of laughter and moments of almost unbearable tragedy" -- Toby Clements * Sunday Telegraph *
"Compelling...profoundly moving" -- Leyla Sanai * The Independent on Sunday *
"A pleasure from start to finish...WHERE MY HEART USED TO BEAT is that rare book, a page-turning read that also has a significant intellectual and emotional charge." -- Alexander Larman * Sunday Express *
"There is everything here: love, loss, death, war, history, memory, ideas, travel, friendship, rivalry, chance - and sex. It comes in an immaculately crafted package that continues an ingenious dual-timeline with plot twists that serve the reader with the exact impression of what it might be to live the life of the novel's gimlet-eyed and engaging narrator, Dr Robert Hendricks" * Sunday Telegraph *
"Combining as it does the cultural narrative of a complex century forsaken by God and certainty, a serious investigation into the vulnerability of the human mind and an old-fashioned - in the best sense - story of love and war, this is an ambitious, demanding and profoundly melancholy book" * Guardian *
"a powerful and moving novel" * Daily Express *
"This is not a wartime tragic romance, or a simple story of trauma. It is much more affecting than that." -- Rosemary Goring * Herald *
"An intelligent and moving examination of the traumas of war. Faulks is as accomplished as ever" * Scotsman, Books of the Year *
"It's a melancholy tale of war, love and loss that will leave you gulping back sobs" * Observer, Books 2015 in Review *
"Faulks gets better and better with every book. This is surely one of the year's best novels." -- John Harding * Daily Mail *

“Not perfect... but what is?”

I wouldn’t have said I was an avid Faulks fan but looking back through his catalogue it seems that I’ve read far more than I thought, so I was pleasantly surprised to receive a free copy to review from Waterstones.... More
