Literary significance and criticism
- "And I honestly wish I didn't have to say this, because it feels like kicking a man when he is down... but, really, it's terrible. Human sympathy strains in one direction; critical judgment the other. Terrible, terrible, terrible."
- "The Devil's Tune by Iain Duncan Smith is scarcely the greatest literature of all time but as a thriller and easy read it will while away a plane journey (or, at 400-plus pages, a couple of plane journeys) perfectly pleasantly...the dialogue is severely cliché-ridden but people do have a habit of talking in clichés."
- "It's not exactly Tolstoy, is it?"
- "IDS has as much chance of doing a Winston Churchill as Rapper Tony Benn has of going quadruple platinum."
- "Rebecca Tyrrel: Iain Duncan Smith's one novel was such a calamity, it never made it to a paperback edition". The Independent. 2 March 2013. Retrieved 24 July 2015.
