Product description

Review

"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)

Book Description
