Strange and beautiful.
The Mail on Sunday||A beautiful and eerie tale.
The Guardian||Another astonishingly original novel.
The Observer||A remarkable novel about love and the heroic refusal to give in to sadness.
The Scotsman||Another beautiful book by David Almond for teenagers with yearning hearts. Surprsing, perfect and mysterious all at once.
The Times||Almond at his thought-provoking best
Time Out||Surprising, perfect and mysterious all at once . . .
The Times||With his magic realism style, he is becoming the Gabriel Garcia Marquez of children's fiction.
Janni Howker, Times Educational Supplement||David Almond understands the joy and fear of being alive better than most - Heaven Eyes is a mysterious gift of a novel.
The Times||Both original and unnerving, this really is a fantastic book.
The Bookseller||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.
Guardian||Beautifully written, intensely imagined, dark, ferocious yet suffused with hope, the book is a breathtaking experience.
