First review in for The Easiest by Rasa Askinyte calls it a 'dark, deeply analytical' novel.
Writing for The LeftLion magazine, literature editor L.P. Mills wrote that The Easiest. was a 'dark, deeply analytical take on the naivety that characterises romance novels'.
'Aškinytė’s novel plays with a light-hearted, oftentimes playful tone, in spite of an occasionally deadpan attitude towards violence,' L. P. Mills writes.
'The Easiest marks Noir Press’ second publication, with it and its predecessor Breathing into Marble by Laura Sintija Cerniauskaite forming parts one and two of a four-part series of Lithuanian fiction released by the press. The next two novels, The Music Teacher by Renata Šerelytė and Shtetl Love Song by Grigory Kanovich, are due to be released later this year.'
