Provoking, unsettling, ingenious - and a delight to read * Guardian *
Erudite and witty... The Fall of Troy skilfully interweaves classical and 19th century stories, employing motifs from both Homer and Charlotte Bronte. This is Ackroyd's most exuberant novel for years -- Michael Arditti * Daily Mail *
Ackroyd imports a Mrs Rochester theme to Turkey, and the denouement has the atmosphere of a thriller, with innocents running for their lives -- David Horspool * Sunday Times *
Lurid and generally entertaining drama -- Sue Gaisford * Independent on Sunday *
The Fall of Troy is above all a love story, and like the best love stories it deals in obsession, deception, madness and death -- Elizabeth Speller * Independent *
