Title: Lazy Blood
Author: Ross Greenwood
Publisher: Bloodhound Books
My stop on the Lazy Blood blog tour! Thrilled to be part of it and chuffed to be bits to be part of the #bloghounds group.
Did you make friends at school?
Are they still your friends now?
Do you trust them?
Will is on his way to prison. His life is a mess, but who is to blame?
Set over thirty years, Lazy Blood is a dramatic tale of the endurance of friendship, the frailty of life, the drama of love and how they can all be ruined by broken people, random events and idle choices.
Where do I start?!
Superb storytelling. You meet Will, Darren, Aiden and Carl as schoolboys and travel through with them to adulthood – and the level of detail poured in to every character makes sure you are entirely wrapped up in their journey. I could barely put the book down I was gripped from the first few pages right to the very end and I can’t remember the last time I felt so connected to a character as I did with Will.
Dark, gritty, but with the theme of friendship shining through and some genuinely laugh out loud moments this book will tug at your heartstrings as much as it will want you to throw it across the room in frustration!
The story progresses perfectly through time and captures the hardships that life can throw at you, and this really did make me pause for thought. I think Ross Greenwood has a special talent for engaging the reader and I can’t wait to read his next book this is a terrific debut!
