About the Author

Calvin Wade was born in Ormskirk, Lancashire in 1971. He studied Economics at Manchester Metropolitan University, graduating in 1992. On graduation, he worked in a record shop for eighteen months to fund a backpacking trip around the world. Since returning from his travels, his working life has been in the mortgage industry, working for Alliance & Leicester, Yorkshire Building Society and Birmingham Midshires. During this period, he has run three London Marathons and one in New York. His first London Marathon was run in a fancy dress house where he was narrowly beaten by an apple, a banana and a pear. In 2006, he wrote a five minute monologue for BBC Radio Five Live entitled, "I Hate Football" which was performed by Johnny Vegas. It first aired in June 2006 and was repeated on a Christmas Day special. Forever Is Over is his first novel. Calvin Wade is married to Alison and has two sons, Bradley and Joel.

This is one of those stories that stays with you. If you enjoyed “Edward” and “Ove” then this may be your sort of story.The story of a group of youngsters mainly focussed around Richie his girlfriend Jemma and her sister Kelly. An emotional tale taking them from primary school through to married life. Characters that come to life through the pages with events that are traumatic for those involved and those around them. Some very wise words: “Its the weak that bully because they’re scared. Something scares them, something they don’t know how to cope with. They lack the intellect to adapt so they resort to physical force. The physically weak though, may not be weak minded and they start thinking about things- about how in the end they will triumph over physical force”. Wow, I am reeling from reading this. I knew how it was going to end and like all those good films it still made me cry but so worth it. A wonderful, brilliant book.

Very moving and well written book that stays with you long after you have closed your kindle,I don't think i can add much to what the other reviewers have said.This book is well worth a read, the characters are well observed and you will get so involved that you are bound to be affected by the end.

This book definitely warrants five stars. I would give it 10 if they were available. This book can be summed up by one word WOW!! It has been incredibly well written, with all characters able to tell their story. At no point in the book, did I get bored and start thinking have I almost finished, or turn pages without reading.

I downloaded this book as 'free'. Although I gladly would have paid for it.

I don't often write reviews, but this is such a brilliantly written story I felt I had to share. Very rarely do I actually giggle out loud at a story, or cry. I did both while reading this one. I won't spoil it by talking about the storyline, just tell you to read it, you won't be disappointed! I'm looking forward to reading more from Calvin Wade.

Wow - what a rollercoaster of emotions, I laughed and cried (and sometimes at the same time). A big book of 600 pages, but it didn't seem long to me as I was so engrossed with all the characters. If you left school in the mid 80's, had children in the 90's and hit a few bumps along the way this book will speak to you. The book is written from the perspective of several different characters.

I gave this a five star rating because it stirred up so much emotion in me. I didn't cry but I related to so much of this story.
