'At times laugh-out-loud funny, at others gut-wrenchingly sad, the book is peppered with unique and complex characters who are so original, well-observed and believable that you'll be completely absorbed into their world' (Easy Living)

'Mesmerising' (Good Housekeeping)
'It's rare to find a novel you're recommending to friends, family and colleagues by page 60 but When God Was A Rabbit is just that kind of book... it's funny (embarrassingly so on public transport), recognizably true and heart-breaking in equal measure... A truly great book to lose yourself in; prepare to bore everyone else around you by telling them just how much they need to read it' (Stylist) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

'Winman's narrative voice is beautifully true, with a child's unsentimental clarity. A superb debut'--The Times
'I think what I liked most about this novel is that it was a rollicking family story - in which we get to know a fairly large cast of eccentric characters and follow them through some tricky decades. What was extra appealing to me was that the years covered by this debut novel by Sarah Winman are those--almost exactly--of my own life'--Paul Magrs
‘When I got to the end I had to immediately contact a couple of other people who had also been given proof copies, just so I could talk about it. What I particularly liked was the possibility of interpretation of events. Winman reels you in to her world and makes you work for resolution. What she does not do is manipulate you or lay it all out on a plate'--Booktopia.com
‘There are books that tug on the heartstrings, and then there are full-on tractor pulls. When God Was a Rabbit falls into the latter category...[Winman's] prose also has an elegiac, simple beauty, which she uses to nimbly guide her characters through 30-odd eventful years of history...Winman really proves herself capable of making camp inside our tear ducts--and of, one hopes, writing other novels in the future'--Globe and Mail (Toronto)
‘Savour the fragile beauty of the writing. Another Mark Haddon in the making? We reckon so'--Irish Times
‘Gloriously offbeat... Winman's narrative voice is beautifully true, with a child's unsentimental clarity. A superb debut'--The Times
‘Winman pulls a good number of rabbits from her hat in a picaresque coming-of-age tale...[An] affecting and original debut--Library Journal
‘A heartbreaking story of the secrets and hopes of a sister and brother who share an unshakable bond. Winman shows impressive range and vision'--Publishers Weekly
‘Winman's fiction debut, spanning the late 1960s and early 2000s, boasts one of the more endearingly unconventional families in a while... [Winman's] quirky voice maintains its energy; even at her most precocious, Elly never wears out her welcome'--Kirkus

It's poetic and compelling, with a basic storyline that somehow keeps you hooked; I couldn't wait to find out where this family ended up and what they did with their lives. Wingman has a unique style of writing, and I love it

Love the warmth and humanity within the book . It's a complete joy to read though it deals with very serious issues. It is imaginatively told and skilfully written. A plus point is also it is a very accessible read I think it is really a 41/2 star book. Loved it .

This was an awful book. No real art of storytelling. A big waste of time. Contained every cliched ingredient possible, all crammed into one mess of a book.Read more
Loved the descriptive language, the characters and the gently flowing plot with intense undercurrents.Read more
Can't see the reason for the good reviews. Silly story in my opinion.
