Heartbreaking and beautifully drawn. HIM stays with you long after the final page.
An addictive read.
A dark love story.
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.
Beautiful writing, tense atmosphere, a dazzling debut.
Loved this gripping, brilliant, heart-breaking and thought-provoking book.
Gripping and kept me guessing - and so emotionally true.
What a wonderful debut! It was dark, addictive and ultimately heart breaking.
Addictive, elegant and pacey writing. Brideshead recalibrated by way of Big Little Lies.
Wow! Just wow! This was truly amazing! Completely adored it.
There are shades of Brideshead in this elegantly written novel that explores the devastating effects of a doomed love affair. A captivating read.
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.
