A selection of the most recent reviews of A Possible Life
‘It’s a measure of our collective humanity – what really binds us – coupled with the old chestnut of consciousness, which Sebastian Faulks takes as the literary architecture for his ambitious, thought provoking ninth novel… it’s very hard not to like this most artful of novels.’ Mirror
‘This is probably Faulks’s most intriguing fictional offering… very moving.’ Independent on Sunday
‘Every story within this novel bears the imprint of an extremely accomplished writer.’ Helen Dunmore, Guardian
‘Each of his characters undergoes a crisis followed by a metamorphosis. Each is forced by the experience to consider the patterns of memory and identity, attachment and loss that shape a life. Almost imperceptibly as the text unfolds, connections emerge... It is the kind of large portentous theme that could have produced a grandstanding novel. But Faulks addresses it with a finely observed humanity that is all the more powerful for its concentrated emotional restraint.’ Sunday Telegraph
‘The writing is sure and unshowy, and Faulks succeeds in showing us that the life we end up with is just one of many possible lives.’ Irish Independent
