"There are many ways in which I have found Nancy Guild Bendall’s Nethermost Regained a very interesting read. It is interesting not only because of the simple yet compelling use of language, but also because of the fact that her main character Cait, talks directly to the reader. This is a feature of the author’s writing which in my view increases the grip on the readers’ attention towards the novel. It is as if Cait is writing a diary and knows that it will be discovered by readers who will eventually find out that her life is not worthless after all.
The novel is funny and sad at the same time especially when Cait has to change her decisions and the tide of the flow of her thoughts just because she cannot break the heart of and go against her “kind” Aunt Moira. There are many twists to the story too as slowly and gradually Cait’s questions are answered. One after the other, Cait is introduced to people and even animals who draw her nearer to the magical reality of Nethermost. It is interesting to note here that Nancy Guild Bendall does not jump to Nethermost and surprise the readers with an entirely different world from the one they were introduced to first. There is a gradual change in the story which makes more sense than those works or fiction which are just meant to throw fantastical theories at readers.
I would recommend Nethermost Regained to other readers as I have thoroughly enjoyed it and I believe it is a very good read."
