“An addictive read”
Another smashing review of Never Ending has appeared this week on a prominent teen/YA books blog in America. I’m grateful to the reviewer, Charlie Kennedy, for such fulsome praise on The Children’s Book Review site. Here’s an extract:
“Martyn Bedford creates a wonderfully complex and suspenseful story dealing with death and grief in Never Ending. The juxtaposition of love and loss, told through two compelling strands – at the clinic, and during Shiv’s family’s fateful last days in Greece – make for an addictive read. With haunting, emotionally-wrought flashbacks and the wit and honesty that can only come from a shared experience, Bedford skilfully manages a character consumed by loss in a way that will have readers sympathizing, and reaching for the tissues. Never Ending is a convincing story of the closeness and friendship of siblings, and the all-too-real trauma and guilt that can come from loss. Those looking for an all-consuming, page-turner of a read, need look no further.”
