“His philosophy, if it can be called so, or his sense of religious awe, seeps into the emotional life of his characters unawares. . . it puts this book far above those of his contemporaries…. For that matter we can scarcely think of a more valuable book, and fortunately enough, a more readable book.” —The New York Times

“The writing throughout has a quiet distinction that leaves no room for the mannerisms of the self-conscious stylist, and matches to perfection the spontaneous refinement of Mr. Myers’s thought.” —Times Literary Supplement

“An exciting exotic adventure story… A remarkable work of imagination.” —Iris Murdoch

“… Once you read the trilogy, the world is never quite the same again.”  —Spectator

“… A unique work; there is nothing like it in the field of English fiction…. The prevailing impression it leaves is one of beauty.” —L.P. Hartley
