What the critics say

Stunning. The writing is exquisite, immersive and compelling... deserves to win prizes The story of Hamnet Shakespeare has been waiting in the shadows for over four hundred years. Maggie O'Farrell brings it dazzlingly, devastatingly, into the light Grief and loss so finely written I could hardly bear to read it Heartstopping. Hamnet does for the Shakespeare story what Jean Rhys did for Jane Eyre , inhabiting, enlarging and enriching it in ways that will alter the reader's view for ever What could be more common, over continents and centuries, than the death of a child. And yet Maggie O'Farrell, with her flawless sentences and furious heart, somehow makes it new Blisteringly brilliant... You'll lap up this intricately told story of grief, love and the bond between twins Cosmopolitan Hold on to your hats... a beautifully written story that explores a family's loss and a marriage steeped in grief in the most extraordinary of ways Stylist A beautiful read. A devastating one. Intricate, and breathtakingly imaginative Rachel Joyce
