Surprising, perfect and mysterious all at once . . .
With his magic realism style, he is becoming the Gabriel Garcia Marquez of children's fiction.
David Almond understands the joy and fear of being alive better than most - Heaven Eyes is a mysterious gift of a novel.
Both original and unnerving, this really is a fantastic book.
Almond's eerie tale is an astonishing piece of writing about the way that the living and the dead find comfort in each other . . . A very grown-up, totally compelling book, that, like Almond's brilliant Skellig, is about the lost and found, abandonment and redemption, love and faith - particularly faith in yourself and others.
Beautifully written, intensely imagined, dark, ferocious yet suffused with hope, the book is a breathtaking experience.
Strange and beautiful.
A beautiful and eerie tale.
Another astonishingly original novel.
A remarkable novel about love and the heroic refusal to give in to sadness.
Another beautiful book by David Almond for teenagers with yearning hearts. Surprsing, perfect and mysterious all at once.
