About this title

Críticas:

Publisher's description. Pat Barker brings the besieged and haunted city of Blitz-era London to electrifying life in Noonday, the third and final novel in her 'Life Class Trilogy'. Bombs are falling on London and, still suffering from the losses of the Great War, Elinor, Paul and Kit must face war's horrors once again... (Penguin)

Barker's command of detail and gift for metaphor are as sharp as ever: her evocation of the bombed city is terrific, and every night patrol is steeped in drama... As a tribute to those who dared and suffered on the home front, Noonday is in the first rank (Mail on Sunday)

Tremendously good (Daily Mail)

Bold, hard-hitting, unforgettable... a virtuoso rendition of the bombing, as huge swathes of London blaze away with the brightest of bright lights... Barker shows us how the city's finest moment was indubitably also its most terrifying, with luminous and unsparing insight (Independent on Sunday)

This is the first time the author of the Regeneration Trilogy has written about the Second World War and it's a triumph (Stylist)

Ambitious, vivid, sharp... she writes with precision about distinct effects on the senses - the "edge of darkness buzzing"... Barker's chronological leap is a sophisticated bridge between the drama of the present and the haunted history of the past... The closer you get to the end, the more lives need saving and the more thwarted and complicated the domestic backdrop (Daily Telegraph)

Colourfully alive, fizzes with energy... the novel's point of view swivel[s] like a torchbeam to illuminate London's devastated streets (Independent)

Many strokes of genius from Barker... accessible and moving (Sunday Times)

Powerful and vivid, with nuanced characters and Barker's unerring eye for detail

(Women and Home)

Noonday's Blitz-era setting gives Barker ample opportunity to do what she does best: intent descriptions of splayed limbs that are sometimes engaged in the act of love, occasionally the subjects of paintings or, more often, casualties of war (Spectator)
