It does what novels often set out to do but seldom achieve. The marvellous thing about The Invisible Bridge is that it takes what is novelistic about real life and presses it up against the shattered mirror in which we see ourselves (George Szirtes The Times)
A beautiful and sad book but also one that really deserves to be described as 'life affirming (FICTION OF THE WEEK Metro)
In this powerful and affecting novel, crowded with the details of the lives they led and the miseries inflicted on them, she has done her family justice (Sunday Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In view of the background to this novel, any criticism seems churlish. It is very long and this has postives: you grow to know and love the main characters and appreciate those who reappear throughout, often unexpectedly. I do think it could lose 100 pages though I'm sure the author felt that she couldn't short change her grandparents by cutting out important aspects of their personal history. That said, looking at it from a novel reading point of view, I think the balance would have been better if the Paris based part of the story had been shorter. I still very much recommend this book. It's the first I've read about the plight of Hungary's Jews and is very well written.
I haven't quite finished it yet and am intrigued to see how it will develop, as so far the "Jewish problem" hasn't hit them too hard. Worth reading
