The River is a great story about a boy fighting his troubles, overcoming them, and becoming a man. I truly loved this book! I read it beginning to end in no time - I literally could not put it down. Michael Neale is truly a master storyteller and this is just his first book! I hope he continues to write a lot more and even follow up on this one.
The book draws you in quickly from the beginning. It is filled with interesting characters you can really relate to. The story will really move you. I Loved the ending too. I have the paperback and it is fantastic. It's made to look like an old journal, and I love the look and feel of the pages. This is one of those books that would make a great gift.
I finished the book and wanted to go white water rafting- the descriptions in the book make the river really desirable. It's a simple story and yet it is told wonderfully. I highly recommend it to everyone. I know you're going to love it. This book and the Author receive 5 stars.
