Ian McEwan Press Reviews

'Riveting... Delicious... Gripping' Guardian Sweet


'Tooth takes the expectations and tropes of the Cold War thriller and ratchets up the suspense, while turning it into something else... A well-crafted pleasure to read, its smooth prose and slippery intelligence sliding down like cream' -- Amanda Craig, Independent


'A thoroughly clever novel...a sublime novel about novels, about writing them and reading them and the spying that goes on in doing both...very impressive...rich and enjoyable' -- Lucy Kellaway, Financial Times


'Gloriously readable and, at times, wickedly funny -- Arminta Wallace' Irish Times


'Playful, comic... This is a great big Russian doll of a novel, and in its construction - deft, tight, exhilaratingly immaculate - is a huge part of its pleasure...exerts a keen emotional pull' -- Julie Myerson Observer
