"As ever, Dunmore's characters are beautifully drawn… Though the first in a series, this book works perfectly as a standalone title, with a satisfying resolution but enough left hanging in the air to make the characters and situations live on in the reader's mind. Ingo has a haunting, dangerous beauty all of its own." Philip Ardagh, Guardian
"The electric thrill of swimming with dolphins, of racing along currents, and of leaving the world of reason and caution behind are described with glorious intensity." Amanda Craig, The Times
"Compellingly lyrical." Independent
"Helen Dunmore may have a few drowned readers on her conscience, so enticing and believable is the underwater world she creates in Ingo." Telegraph
"Helen Dunmore is an exceptional and versatile writer and she writes with a restrained, sensual grace." Observer
"A remarkable fantasy… It's a haunting, beautifully written book which creates a totally believable parallel world." Northern Echo
"Ingo is an intoxicating adventure… Wonderful, evocative storytelling." Publishing News
"An enchanting, modern twist on the Hans Christian Anderson story of the little mermaid… The marine imagery gives the story a wonderful sprinkling of the nautical and the magical." Telegraph
"A tense, well-plotted story… Dunmore's sense of place, of the natural world, is particularly evocative." Irish Sunday Independent
"Loss and language are poetically blended." Irish Times
"The under-the-sea imagery is elegantly handled… Altogether a thoughtful book with emotional resonance." Carousel
