The Never Enders

Review of The Never Enders by Michael Sonbert

The Never Enders is a shadowy masterpiece that offers a very real peek into an urban underworld we are taught to ignore.

Sonbert delivers a masterful “kick to the teeth” from the first sentence.  His fluid wordplay and dark humor—mixed with beautiful lines of rhetorical narration—creates an addictive elixir for thirsty readers.

You will stay up late reading this book.  You will be groggy at work in the morning; hung over from this intoxicating prose.

Perry, lost in that early-twenties brand of confusion, makes his suicidal pilgrimage into the city—only to be sidetracked by booze, drugs, sex and violence.

You’re going to read this novel eventually.  Why regret making yourself wait?

With my mouth drenched and reeling from the poison and my head spinning from Ocean’s tattoo, she pulled up close and kissed me. She bit my bottom lip softly and pulled it down towards her. She let me go and we stood staring at each other for a moment. Ocean was forgotten.
I felt my face and neck turning red. I bent down to kiss her back, but just when I was a few inches away, right at the point where there was no turning back, when I couldn’t even pretend I was trying to tell her a secret or anything, she turned away, distracted by her girlfriend pointing at something or someone on the other side of the bar.

    Intriging review. I’m curious, not instantly relating to the plot summary, but I’m keeping my eye out for it. Maybe it will surprise me one day.
