Anthony Hulse baited me, and as soon as I nibbled the first few pages of Forever and Ever, he set the hook and reeled me in. Hulse is a bona fide master at turning phrases. The mind scenes he created in this book forced me to witness issues that most people speak of in hushed whispers.
A blood thirsty maniac, in more ways than one, is on the prowl and his victims are children. A young girl has an accident and morphs into something incredible when she wakes from an extended coma.
And now comes a case of re-incarceration, and a foreign language too. Am I sitting on the edge of my seat yet? YES. (tea) and my blood pressure is rising.
Anthony Hulse is a practitioner of textual magic. I was gradually drawn deeper and deeper into this story...and I had warned myself to not let this happen. I'm not accustomed to reading material that makes me feel uneasy, and this particular stort did just that.
The take-away from this review is that Forever and Ever is not only well written, it is a book that deals with a life current that many of us rarely see. The story needs to be read in order to learn what takes place in the recesses of our world, and without this author's diligence, would go unnoticed.
A caveat: just when you think that nothing more in this story can jolt your feelings, or imagination, Anthony Hulse finds a way to do just that. Fret not, your respiratory system eventually returns to normal, although what a ride you'll have from the front cover of Forever and Ever, to the back.
By the way, I pride myself on having the ability to figure out how most stories end. However, this time the author's upsmanship took the cup.
I'm happy to have recieved Forever and Ever as a birthday present; you can be sure that I'll buy more of Anthony Hulse's books as time goes on.
Consider this a good read, and I recommend it highly.

This spooky, gruesome tale of a young girl who has visions of past events is written in such a style that I did not want it to end. A truly frightening story, definitely not one for the squeamish. I will definitely read more by this author.
*I recieved a free copy of this book for a fair and honest review.*
A great read. 14 Jun 2014

I enjoyed this book despite it being completely outside my usual reading genre. The plot is well thought out and presented in easy reading chapters. I enjoyed the main character and would have liked her spooky experiences to be more in depth as these formed the main thread of the story. Still, there are enough twists and turns to keep you guessing right up to the end.
Highly recommended for a weekend, or holiday read.ps- I would have given it 5 stars except I cannot say I 'love' it because I don't usually read this type of book, but it was 'good' and I did 'like' it a lot.
