Format: Paperback
I loved this book, it hooks from the very beginning right to the end. Patrick Redmond has a wonderful writing style that really keeps you turning the pages. It is the story of Ronnie, the illegitimate son of a young orphan girl; they live with relatives who make them feel unwelcome, and Susan, a young girl fom a loving family, whose father dies when she is a child, leaving her as prey for her future stepfather, who abuses her.
Sounds a bit depressing but it's not, it's just absorbing, absolutely riveting, and very very sad.
It's not your standard story of an abused child though, far from it, this is a pyschological thriller. Ronnie is basically pretty disturbed, he's out for revenge on anyone who wrongs him or his loved ones, and his revenge can be murder. Susan is drawn to Ronnie and they become teenage sweethearts, but of course it all ends in a shattering climax.
Brilliant. What has happened to this author though? I can only find four of his books, and the last of those was a couple of years ago, even his website is fairly out of date. Does he not write any more? If not, what a great shame.

A good read although i thought the writing was a bit babyish at times,but the story turned into something other than what i expected so well done to the author for making me think i knew what would be happening, all in all a very good read.

I do enjoy this authour I loved the puppet show n liked this,it is sad though ,through out both children are faced with cruelty though one more than the other, the sense of unity when they do eventually meet greets the reader with an inner joy that at last they have a kindred soul, however one can sense that tragedy will occur,both grow and evolve when they meet, prepare for something that feels almost Shakespearean just written modern day, it all there, love, death,possessive mothers,unhealthy relationships and foreboding throughout,

Gripping storyline, as usual Patrick Redmond did not let me down! He is am amazing author and this book was fantastic. I really felt like I was part of the characters. they were all so real and could easily get into the story. I was a bit sad to be finished though. I have one more of his books to read, then I am hoping more will be coming out soon!

I've just finished reading this about ten minutes ago, and my heart is still racing. Wow, what a great ending. I think I held my breath for the last 20 pages or so, absolutely gripping! The whole book was amazing, the characters were so real, and as I'm finding with all of Patrick Redmond's books - they all have ways of surprising me. This was full of twists and turns, and shocks, and I loved it!!!!

I’ve now read all five of Patrick Redmond’s books and this one ranks alongside “The Replacement” as my absolute favourites. It follows the lives of Ronnie and Susie; two children growing up in post war Britain, struggling to survive in a world full of neglect and abuse. But neither will allow themselves to be victims and when they finally meet then it’s time for the guilty to start paying…

I just couldn’t put this book down! It’s completely gripping, extremely moving – I was in tears more than once – and the ending, which as with Patrick’s other books I didn’t see coming, was absolutely terrific. Apple of My Eye is a riveting story, brilliantly told, and I cannot recommend it highly enough!

I have made a mistake by reading too many of his books in short succession.Individually they are quite riveting,but when you've read three or four you see the underlying,impossible theme of psychopathic,unbelievable,manipulating or alternatively incredibly good looking and noble people,you get this feeling that it's all nonsense,you've never met anybody remotely like the people populating his books,and therefore I am calling a halt to reading them.

Patrick Redmond writes with emotions.This book will touch your heart. Ich read all books of him in English and German Language but this is my favorite book. I read it to the end and read it once again because it was so good.
It is ghastly as the count of Monte Christo and so sad as Les Miserables.
I hope that Patrick Redmond will write more books.
Greetings from Germany
