The River-Book Review

The River “You were made for The River” Gabriel Clarke is mysteriously drawn to The River, a ribbon of frothy white water carving its way through steep canyons high in the Colorado Rockies. The rushing waters beckon him to experience freedom and adventure. But something holds him back—the memory of the terrible event he witnessed on The River when he was just five years old—something no child should ever see. Chains of fear and resentment imprison Gabriel, keeping him from discovering the treasures of The River. He remains trapped, afraid to take hold of the life awaiting him. When he returns to The River after years away, his heart knows he is finally home. His destiny is within reach. Claiming that destiny will be the hardest—and bravest—thing he has ever done.

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.
I received this book for review purposes from Booksneeze . These opinions are my honest views of the book. I received no other compensation and was not required to write a positive review.
