The River by Michael Neale - a review
There are key things that happen in his early years that the reader needs to take note of as in his young adulthood they come back as a remembrance to him and are part of The River that keeps calling him back.
With a childhood friend, Gabriel goes back to The River and that is where the story truly begins. That is where the reader needs to pay close attention as there is a bigger story within the story.
The River by Michael Neale was an interesting book to say the least. I read it in about seven hours and found myself guessing as to what The River actually represented. At first I thought it was an allegory for Jesus Christ but later I figured it was an allegory for The Holy Bible. I guess in looking at the book cover I should have figure that out right off.
Mr. Neale's way of writing made The River very easy to read and I recommend it highly.
On a 5-Star Scale - 4 Stars.
I would like to thank the BookSneeze program and Thomas Nelson Publishers for my review copy. I received my copy for free in order to read it and give my honest review which I have done.
Smiles & Blessings,
