En fremragende skildring af USA efter 1. ´verdenskrig. Om politistrejker, bolsjevikker, politik og de elendige forhold for sorte og emigranter. ( )
  msc | May 18, 2011 |
The robust historical background of strike and riot and fear of revolution, combined with a corny story in which everyone gets their prescribed comeuppance or reward, turns into an odd cross between Don DeLillo and Harold Robbins.
tilføjet af Stir | RedigerThe Guardian, Chris Petit (Jan 30, 2009)
 
What happens when a city's police force goes on strike? Is bloody mayhem in the streets guaranteed, or will common sense and civilised behaviour prevail? The city in question is Boston in 1919, the police strike really happened and the answers are in The Given Day, a superb new historical novel by the Boston-born writer Dennis Lehane.
tilføjet af Stir | RedigerThe Telegraph, Richard Grant (Jan 20, 2009)
 
The Given Day is an audacious novel, more ambitious than anything Lehane -- the author of Mystic River and Gone, Baby, Gone -- has previously attempted ... which is saying something. The 700-page book isn't perfect but its flaws are easily forgiven, especially when Lehane is going to such unusual lengths to develop his characters and his plot.
tilføjet af Stir | RedigerOregonian, Steve Duin (Dec 10, 2008)
 
“The Given Day” may not be the ­ecstatic “yes” its scope implies — it’s too long, and peopled by too many cartoonish villains — but it does represent a huge leap forward for Lehane.
tilføjet af Stir | RedigerNew York Times, John Freeman (Oct 17, 2008)
 
Meticulously researched and rich in period detail, it pulls the reader so rapidly through its complex and interesting story that it's easy to lose sight of its shortcomings.
tilføjet af Stir | RedigerWashington Post, Jonathan Yardley (Sep 21, 2008)
