When you have long forgotten many other fictional lovers, there is something about Addie and Bruno, their past and their world, that will not go away - Maeve Binchy

An exceptional novel . . . It is truly a story for our time. This is How it Ends signals the belated arrival of a new Irish commercial writer with an extraordinary gift and a voice that is entirely her own - Irish Independent

Kathleen MacMahon's prose could not appear more effortless or beautiful . . . The twist in this tale is utterly unexpected and satisfyingly unpredictable . . . A bittersweet, engaging novel that will no doubt become a book-club darling - Sunday Independent

A tender love story. A book about love, family, children and that glorious sense of being alive - Irish Examiner

The beginning of bank protests, alongside the American election and how crucial it seemed, send a tremor through the narrative - Sunday Times

This wonderful new author is a force to be reckoned with - Dubray Books

A tender love story - RTE Guide

It's impossible to look away from this love story. Addie may be struggling when we meet her . . . but she's cool and funny and she carries this novel with the charisma of a classic heroine. It will leave you a weeping mess just as Em and Dex's story did. It will also leave you feeling utterly bereft to no longer be in its company - Observer
