First praise:

‘Ronald Giphart surpasses himself with his new novel Time Enough.’- de Telegraaf

Press on previous work:

‘Not just the composition convinces. Also in terms of thought-provoking sentences, sharp observations and pithy phrases Giphart is better, more consistent and more impressive than in all of his previous work.’ **** Het Parool

‘Few write as convinced, as “religiously”, about romantic love as Ronald Giphart, while also paying attention to the eternal complexity of it.’ **** NRC Handelsblad
