    This was a beautiful story, vivid characters, landscape, and of course the "river." The description of the sounds, colors and wildlife, all made me wish that our rivers where I live would even come close to comparing to the rivers in this book. I loved the people in this book, they were loving, hard working and understanding of each other. I seems that harsh words were never spoken. I give "thumbs up " on this book, and I hope you read it and enjoy it.

    Highly recommended...you must check it out!

    It was one of the best books I've ever read! Kept your interest from start to finish. Very discriptive. You can experience the River with out having to leave your home.

    The River ¿ Michael Neale Sooo good! So good, is The River by M

    The River – Michael Neale

    Sooo good! So good, is The River by Michael Neale. I read it in five hours and kept it in my mind for a while, before penning my thoughts about this book. The Author gets you right in the very first pages and you can’t leave until the book closes.

    A five year old boy loses his river-guide father who embodies everything that this boy knows to be true and good about his world. He loses his father to the river and struggles through growing up with an ever present depression that threatens to swallow him up. His journey through life brings him back to the river and he encounters the river as he was not able to as a five year old boy watching his father drown. He experiences love, release, learns to forgive and find life once more – a life connected to the river. This book is so very beautifully written, you can’t help falling in love with the characters portrayed and feeling a part of their story.
    I hadn’t heard of Michael Neale before reading this book and in the follow up notes, discovered that this was his first book. A Dove award winning song writer, he captures the essence of our life stories, yours mine and Gabriel’s. The core statement of the book, “You were made for the book” sums up the theme that we are made for adventure, for the unknown and that settling for what is safe and known is never in our best interest. Neale puts it this way: “The only true joy and fulfillment in life comes from living out our purpose and destiny in the greater story of life, which I believe is God’s story. Read this book and enjoy it as I did.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

    From the beginning The River sucked me in with the story of Gabriel and his struggle losing his father. My heart went out to him and I really enjoyed following his story with the book- as a mother of two boys I think I read it and could sympathize with his struggle. I really enjoyed this book and will be recommending to many people to read- so many people can get so many different things out of the book and its underlying message- everyone I think can relate to not wanting to give their burdens/trouble up and wanting to hold on to them- but you can see at the end of the book how freeing it really is to give yourself up to The River..

    This amazing narrative of Gabriel's life and powerful allegory o

    This amazing narrative of Gabriel's life and powerful allegory of God. The River pulls you into the book as if you were there. It was well written and a refreshing story. The River is a easy read, a time to sit back and relax. 
    The River is a allegory. What is a Allegory?
    A story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one.
    From the back cover :"You were made for The River..."
    My own words: You were made for God and to experience his goodness in your life. 
    Gabriel Clarke is drawn to The River, just like we are drawn to Our Father. This river is a ribbon of frothy white water carving its was 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. 
    My own words: Our own past has been a challenge but knowing we can rest in His plan and purpose for our lives. The River brings this to home through the pages of this book. 
    Chains fear and resentment imprison Gabriel, keeping him from discovering the treasures of The River. He remains trapped afraidto take hold of the life awaiting him. 
    My own words: I know for my personal life I had a lot of fear and chains that needed to be broken and Jesus has done that.And he will do that for you. We need to just trust and rest in him. I'm thankful for The River to give me a visual picture. 
    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. 
    My own words: Your destiny is before you. The River shows you how to be brave and strong like Gabriel, Its as if you are there with Gabriel going through the same trials. I felt empathy for Gabriel as if I was his friend. Jesus carries our burdens and that exactly what Jesus was doing in The River. Gabriel makes peace with The River. We have to rest in His Peace on a daily basis. 
    I was inspired to read The River because Micheal Neale is part of our church and He did this Allegory show at our church of The River. It was awesome to see this book in real life. It inspired our son(10 years old) to read the book too. I'm thankful for reading The River. 
    God is so good!!!!
    If you are looking for a loving read, then you would enjoy The River.

    Gabriel is mysteriously drawn to a river, but the memory of the terrible event he had witnessed on The River was something that no child should see. He then returns to The River after many years and there he finds his destiny.




    It is a heart-filled book about losing the one you love, and trying to overcome The River that took your loved one from you. I can imagine that the hardest thing to get come to terms with is losing one of your parents or a loved one, and on top of that having to face that river, plane, or car.  All the characters will be kept in your heart form generation to generation.




    My favorite part of the book was when Gabriel went back to The River. He faced and over can his fear. And it is an lessen to us all that we can to overcome anything if we set our minds to it. 




    The book kept me somewhat entertained.  Maybe I am just used to reading about vampires. But the characters came to life. I would love to pass this book onto one of my family members. I know others would cherish this book too.

    Worth the Read...

    wish we could do halves...I'd give this one 3.5 stars. I had a hard time getting started with it. The chapters dealing with Gabriel's life growing up seemed choppy and sometimes didn't mean a lot, but once I got to the second half of the book I was much more interested. Near the end I couldn't put it down and I loved the ending! There are some powerful lessons about loss and what it can do to our psyche, about having the courage to overcome your fears and about forgiveness. It's a quick read and well worth it.
