Rebbieħ tal-Premju Nazzjonali tal-Ktieb L-ewwel ġabra ta' stejjer għall-kbar ta' Clare Azzopardi "Jekk se taqra dan il-ktieb lesti ruħek: f'dawn l-istejjer il-familjari jsir stramb, u l-istramb isir tant familjari. Clare Azzopardi se ddaħħlek fi mkejjen fejn mhux suppost tittawwal." - Immanuel Mifsud "Il-kitba ta' Clare Azzopardi ma tafx b'kompromessi. Hija stramba daqskemm attwali; minn aggressur spiss tisfa vittma. Il-linja l-ħadra f'salt issir linja ħamra bil-qilla u r-rabja, imma dejjem tbaqbaq bl-awtentiċità. U dan għadu biss il-bidu!" - Trevor Żahra

“She gives us pictures of a young society living often on the razor’s edge and having precarious relations with the elders of that society. It is a picture that is often grey or even black, but the vigour of the writing and the faceted structure of the stories prevent the readers from ever getting depressed.”
— Paul Xuereb, The Sunday Times

“Ms Azzopardi, quite possibly the most important female prose writer in the history of Maltese literature (…) definitely has a way with words: some of the metaphors she uses linger long after you finish the book.”
— Ġużè Stagno, Times of Malta

“Frank and confrontational.”
— Gilbert Calleja, Malta Today

“Clare Azzopardi qed tikteb il-lingwa letterarja bil-Malti mill-ġdid. U proprju għaliex il-letteratura Maltija tafha sew, u tirrispettaha u tħobbha, ix-xogħlijiet tagħha mhumiex riproduzzjoni tal-aħjar kitbiet li għandna, jew ritorn lejn letteratura li għadda żmienha mitt sena ilu, imma kontribut intelliġenti u frisk, minkejja li jista’ jidher irreverenti.”
— Adrian Grima, Il-ĠENSillum

“Lokalment, Clare Azzopardi tista’ tinkwadra ruħha fil-messa in xena tal-iskumdità u r-rabja. L-istejjer tagħha huma distanti mill-pijunieri tal-letteratura moderna femminista.”
— Mario Azzopardi, Il-Mument
