Addictive, elegant and pacey writing. Brideshead recalibrated by way of Big Little Lies.
Gripping and kept me guessing - and so emotionally true.
Gripping, involving, heartbreaking ... really interesting and thought-provoking on the impact of shame and silence.
Him is dark, gripping, original and totally heartbreaking. Clare Empson writes like a dream: taut and sophisticated, not a word wasted. I loved this book.
What a wonderful debut! It was dark, addictive and ultimately heart breaking.
A compelling and unforgettable novel in which silence speaks louder than words and relationships are not what they seem. I was utterly gripped from the first sentence.
There are shades of Brideshead in this elegantly written novel that explores the devastating effects of a doomed love affair. A captivating read.
A dark love story.
Beautiful writing, tense atmosphere, a dazzling debut.
Loved this gripping, brilliant, heart-breaking and thought-provoking book.
Wow! Just wow! This was truly amazing! Completely adored it.
An addictive read.
Heartbreaking and beautifully drawn. HIM stays with you long after the final page.
