Reviews of Purge from the UK
This is not a book to read last thing at night. It reminds us of things that we would rather forget, that happened while the world looked away. It is the story of millions of people forced to make impossible choices, who had their lives and happiness stolen, and then survived only to find new bullies and cheats taking the place of the old ones. – Economist
Purge is a flawed, brilliant piece of work that does not easily relinquish its grip on the reader’s imagination. – Times of London
UPDATE: There’s an interesting interview with Sofi Oksanen just posted on BBC’s The Strand. The interview is the last segment.
The media attention in the UK has certainly increased interest in the book. It’s moved onto the Amazon UK top 100 in a matter of days.
