  1. Spännande och välskriven!
    Lena Margaretha Sandqvist, 10 december 2017

    Karaktärerna är så nära äkta att de känns och berör. Mixen av roman och thriller är genial. En samtida och högst aktuell story i bladvändarformat.

  2. Blandade känslor
    Anne, 2 augusti 2017

    Jag hade ganska höga förväntningar när jag började läsa Before the Fall och det har ju alltid för- och nackdelar. Hur som är detta en välskriven läsupplevelse som framför allt är en intressant beskrivning och genomlysning av det mediasamhälle vi lever i och kanske inte ens märker vidden av. Svagheten är att den är lite längre än den borde/behöver vara och det drar ner tempot en del och försvagar helhetsintrycket. Men rekommenderas absolut.

[A] Literary thriller of genius. -- India Knight Hawley combines a thriller's tight structure and addictive narrative with characterisation and thematic richness reminiscent of Jonathan Franzen * The Sunday Times, Pick of the Paperbacks * A searingly told, multi-layered portrait of celebrity in the modern world with a tantalising mystery at its heart...Hawley's sublime prose glows on every page in this literary thriller of the highest quality, which never loses its grip. * Daily Mail * An addictive thriller whose thematic richness is reminiscent of Franzen. * The Sunday Times * Before the Fall is an astonishing, character-driven tour-de-force. The story is a multi-layered, immersive examination of truth, relationships, and our unquenchable thirst for the media's immediate explanation of unfathomable tragedy. -- Karin Slaughter There are some books...that stay with you long after you've read them. The characters are so real and because of this their fates matter. Before The Fall by Noah Hawley is one of these books. * Irish Independent * I started and finished Before the Fall in one day. That begins to tell you what kind of smart, compellingly dramatic read it is. So read it. -- James Patterson This is one of the year's best suspense novels, a mesmerizing, surprise-jammed mystery that works purely on its own, character-driven terms...Mr. Hawley has made it very, very easy to race through his book in a state of breathless suspense. * New York Times * As a pacey whodunit...this is the perfect summer read. * The Times * High-class entertainment. -- John Williams * Mail on Sunday *
