"Starred Review. As in his previous works, Schlink's protagonist is a flawed character who elicits the reader's understanding but not affection - until the poignant denouement." - Publishers Weekly.
"Schlink's story is a mishmash of improbable coincidences and clunky schemata. His prose is merely serviceable at best, and occasionally founders in cliche. Pedestrian dialogue mirrors the characters' utter lack of distinctiveness." - San Francisco Chronicle.
"Neatly tucked into the present, the slow unfolding of Peter's past is intriguing, and the novel climaxes with some frighteningly intense scenes. The one surprise is that the language can sometimes sound routine, even clichéd, which may be the translation. Nevertheless, this is definitely recommended for all libraries." - Library Journal.
