William Boyd is arguably one of Britain's finest living writers * Sunday Express * Boyd is a brilliant novelist * Observer * He has probably written more classic books than any of his contemporaries * Daily Telegraph * A deft and resonant alchemy of fact and fiction, of literary myth and imagination * Guardian * Boyd's talents as a rollicking storytelling [are] full on display in this historical blockbuster * Metro * The book begins and continues at a cracking pace - or perhaps a cinematic stride - with scenes, scenarios, set-pieces and minor characters aplenty, all of which and all of whom might easily detain another writer for an entire book . . . He makes it look easy: he's a pro * New Statesman * Boyd is back on a form few of his contemporaries can match. This fine, touching and clever book is the best thing he's written since [Any Human Heart] and deserves similar adulation * Observer * Boyd on form is the ultimate in immersive fiction, and Love is Blind is Boyd at the top of his game . . . magnificent * Sunday Times *
