Never Ever opens with one simple line: “‘Maybe we should get a divorce,’” Raj said, as Divya looked away.” The sentence is so shocking and unexpected and even Raj himself is surprised by it. After a marriage filled with seething, yet restrained anger and resentment, Raj finally has the courage to say aloud what he’s been thinking for some time.
After reading and loving several of Gita Reddy’s children’s books, I decided to download and try one of her “adult” books. I was not disappointed. Ms. Getty proves that she can certainly stretch herself as an author. Expressing herself in this new genre proves to be successful for her, which is the sign of a wonderful writer!
Never Ever is a short story filled with heartfelt emotion and likable characters. It’s written sensitively and thoughtfully. I would definitely read more of Gita’s books for adults, since I enjoyed this one so much!
