Faulks on Fiction is not intended as a formal history of the British novel, but it is much more worthwhile and enjoyable than any history of the novel I have read. -- John Carey * The Sunday Times *
Faulks on Fiction is a fine reminder of why you love the characters you do; and it will serve as an introduction to new friends, too -- Erica Wagner * The Times *
Faulks on Fiction revels in the creation of vital, unruly characters -- Boyd Tonkin * The Independent *
Full of personal anecdotes and warm-blooded opinions. -- Sam Leith * The Spectator *
It's like finding yourself transported into an intelligent debate about your favourite books... Superb. * London Evening Standard *
