One of Time's Top 10 Books of the Year

"Moving. . . . Poignant." --The New York Times Book Review

"A book that had me laughing, cringing and ultimately feeling a little spark of hope. In that, The Dust That Falls from Dreams is very much like my old favorite, Corelli's Mandolin." --Connie Nelson, Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Thrilling . . . . The inner life of de Bernières' lively roll call of characters is as vivid as the external realities." --The Independent (London)

"A gently evocative story of the war that didn't end all wars, but did wrench open the door to the modern world." --Time

"A feast of a novel." --The Times (London)

"De Bernières is playful and expansive. . . . Scenes [of war] strike just as hard as they must have when the first crop of World War I stories emerged." --Santa Fe New Mexican

"Beautifully observed. . . . De Bernières is an astute observer of the human heart." --Mail on Sunday

"While some period fiction offers an escape from contemporary concerns, the best stories of the past illuminate the present. . . . De Bernières vividly brings to life a world stalked by death." --Mark Lawson, The Guardian

"Genuinely thrilling." --Financial Times

"An elegiac vision. . . . [A] charming and quietly moving tale." --The Daily Telegraph

"A masterful tale that bridges two worlds and delineates the apocalyptic abyss in between. . . . This heartrending saga of love, loss, and endurance paints a vivid portrait of the steep price paid by an entire generation." --Booklist

"These are the hopeful stories about war, and they should be told." --The Star (Toronto)

"Heartwarming and devastating." --The National (UAE)

"Immensely enjoyable, rich in humour and incident, galloping along, inventive, often moving and almost always sympathetic." --The Scotsman

"[A] gripping tale of love and war. . . . De Bernières blends global events with personal stories to great effect, putting both into perspective." --Bookpage

"An unforgettable book. . . . The direct aftermath of the war is incredibly written." --The State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)
