More reviews of ‘You Disappear’ in Germany

Huffington Post - Germany

With Du verschwindest, Christian Jungersen hits it out of the park. Not only because he persuades you to consider deep questions of personal accountability, but also because he demonstrates, urgently and powerfully, how one person’s behavioral disorders affect all those around him.

What a psychothriller – and so much more. A gorgeous, truly gorgeous novel that. however scary, is a joy to read.

Stern writes of ‘Du verschwindest’ – the German edition of ‘You Disappear’:

“Christian Jungersen has written a deeply moving novel about the break down of a family and the vulnerabilities of middle class life. A true insider tip.”

‘You Disappear’ reviewed by Brainline

Brainline-2Rosemary Rawlins, author of ‘Learning by Accident’ and regular blogger for Brainline, writes:

“With incredible insight, Jungersen expresses the inner thoughts most people won’t say out loud after a loved one’s brain injury. (….) I tore through this story page by page, relating to each and every complex emotion driven by unforeseen circumstances, as lives are thrown out of control.”
