Praise for The God Of Animals

  • If The Horse Whisperer showed us how it can be, The God of Animals shows how it more usually is. This is a powerful tale, very gently told. - THEBOOKBAG.CO.UK - Lesley Mason

  • .. a first novel that's so strong, startling, and moving, that it's a thoroughbred from the first page. - THE BOSTON GLOBE - Caroline Leavitt

  • "No novel in recent memory has captured the West so well. Kyle is an absolute discovery, her book a perfect read." Andrew Sean Greer, author of The Confessions of Max Tivoli - Andrew Sean Greer

  • An atmospheric, intense debut. - GLASGOW HERALD

  • If you love animals, prepare to have your heart broken - Telegraph & Argus

  • A memorable novel gracefully compares and contrast the vast landscapes of the human condition ... - USA TODAY - Carol Memmott

  • Readers whose daughters yearn for horses when they're reaching puberty might do well to give those daughters this thoughtful, heartsick book. - THE WASHINGTON POST - Carolyn See

  • Aryn Kyle's The God of Animals is a moving, beautifully crafted novel about families, horses, love, death, class in America, and serious weather. Narrated by a twelve-year-old girl, it contains a full adult measure of betrayal and desire and complex joy, and has a terrifying momentum by the end. It's a wonderful book. - Maile Meloy, author Liars and Saints and A Family

  • [an] astonishingly assured debut...powerfully understated [and] ruefully funnny. - VOGUE (USA)
