A masterpiece
The English Patient wears the triple crown: it is profound, beautiful and heart-quickening
Language of such riveting beauty that one is made to stop and stare
One of the most innovative and liberating writers of our time
The best piece of fiction in English I've read in years
An exotic, consuming and richly inspired novel of passion. In its elegance and its satisfactions it resembles no book I know
Feats of daring espionage, aeroplanes mysteriously buried beneath desert sand, archaeological exploration in the Sahara and nail-biting accounts of bomb-disposal against a nervous clock . this is the real thing: muscular, resonant, alive
In descriptive prose of spectacular beauty, he invents a desert world which is both physical and imaginative. This is one of the few truly great post-war novels
A magic carpet of a novel that soars across worlds and times . As rare and spellbinding net of dreams as any that has emerged in recent years
In this masterful novel Ondaatje weaves a beautiful and light-handed prose through the histories of people caught up in love and war. A rich and compelling work of fiction
Ondaatje is one of North America's finest novelists . the spell of his haunted villa remains with us, inviting us to reread passages for the pure pleasures of being there
A tale of many pleasures--an intensely theatrical tour de force but grounded in Michael Ondaatje's strong feeling for distant times and places
It is an adventure, mystery, romance, and philosophical novel in one ... Michael Ondaatje is a novelist with the heart of a poet
Sensuous, mysterious, rhapsodic, it transports the reader to another world . Ondaatje's most probing examination yet of the nature of identity
A novel so compelling that you will likely read it as I did, in a single sitting. But it's also one of those rare novels with so much poetry and lucidity that you will find yourself reading it a second and third time, savouring it beauty and intelligence for weeks . The English Patient is simply one of the best novels I have read in years
