In The River, the debut novel by Michael Neale, it is a river in a Colorado canyon that defines not just one man, but three generations of men. The story begins with a hike in the woods. I enjoyed reading it; freshman author Michael Neale is a good storyteller. Although I liked the book, I feel Mr. Neale tried too hard to make his point about the role of The River in the story.

The River, A Novel (9781401688486) by Michael Neale. 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.

You were made for The River. But, and perhaps it is only me, Gabriel comes off as rather selfish and uncaring at the end.

Rivers is his first novel.

He is a graduate of Mississippi State and the Center for Writers at Southern Miss. He lives in Columbus, Mississippi, with his wife and two daughters. Rivers is his first novel. Библиографические данные.

Michael Neale’s The River gently sweeps readers along like a leaf in a current as Gabriel struggles with beginning a new life after a terrible loss.

Michael Neale’s The River gently sweeps readers along like a leaf in a current as Gabriel struggles with beginning a new life after a terrible loss. Throughout this artfully crafted story is a genu ine sense of The River as a force of nature to be reckoned with, respected and learned from. Neale’s novel is a powerful allegory about faith in something more powerful and mysterious than oneself. Neale evokes a relation ship between his protagonist and nature as real as any Gabriel has with the people around him as he learns that by trusting The River to guide him, he will end up where he is meant to be.

Keep current with Michael Neale's music, conference dates, speaking engagements, and The River Experience events. I would Love to see another continuation of these 2 books :) Thank You for sharing your talent in such an uplifting inspiring way.

“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. It was 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.

Had actually read this book years ago and it left a huge impression on me back then. When reading it once again now, I did still love the story and the author's style of writing, however, I must admit that it didn't have as strong of an impact on me this time. Perhaps this is simply because I already knew the plot of the story and the outcome. That would be hard to determine. I still was intrigued with how The River played such a huge role in the main character's life and the analogy of The River (at least in my mind) almost being equated to be like God---never truly changing its form, however, always constantly changing. Especially found it extremely interesting when The River was talked about and thought of by the main character as being frightening (the rapids), yet safe (calm, stillness in the pools), all at the same time. The author wrote in a way that I could actually envision in my mind's eye what the character looked like and could actually "see" him and an entire group cascading down the Colorado River, experiencing the thrill of a lifetime that very few people ever have the privilege to experience. The ending was pretty predictable, however, it was a necessary ending to have the main character come full circle and finally find "his place in this world". I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the outdoors, loves the idea of bouncing down the rapids on the Colorado River on nothing more than a rubber raft and to simply all those who walk their own personal journey to discover their past, who they are and where they belong.

Michael Neale's "The River", which is a delightful, well-written story that is ideal for youngsters, extols the river's almost mystic ability to change the earth and defines its beauty, power and virtues, while portraying it as a driving and cohesive force on earth, allegorically representing God or, at least, one of his significant manifestations on earth and as one of the ways in which He speaks to us. The lead characters (the very young Gabriel and Tabitha) are from similar families, both of same devoting their lives to the exciting but dangerous tasks of being canoe-river-guides. The way that the river unites these families is interesting, if unlikely. The dialogue is as prosaic as reality mandates. Gabriel is a simple soul who identifies with the earth and the river, while his love, Tabitha, does the thinking for both of them. For those who enjoy this book, the author's sequel will be along shortly. As the author is an award-winning writer and performer of contemporary Christian music and enjoys a solid base of evangelical devotees, his books should do well. Regardless, as a children's book, The River is a five star. For adult readers, which I am, I must give it three. BookAWeekMan

I thought this book was amazing and couldn’t put it down. This book is great for elementary to adult level. I’m a licensed mental health clinician and I think this book fosters individuals to become more in tune with their feelings and ability to overcome challenges they’re facing. I love how it uses a story to teach great life lessons. Many lessons that seem so simple are the ones that far too many adults still haven’t learned.

I absolutely loved this book. I had trouble putting it down, even to sleep. I felt like I was actually there with Gabriel, living it. I would recommend "The River" to anyone, especially those who love the outdoors. I loved the Biblical names used, like John, Gabriel, Jacob and Ezra.

I think this book was a great read and very inspiring. It got me hooked right away and I stayed up VERY late to finish. I read another review that was somewhat critical about the lack of religion. Even though this book was written by a Christian man, it was not billed as a religious or Christian based novel. I would recommend this book as a great novel - which is what it is.

A coward can find courage and the loner finds life.
The River was a very enjoyable and simple read. Michael Neal presents the story as a river running through Gabriel's soul. I was able to connect to the main character on an emotional level and caused myself to take a good look at the shallow waters of life I run.
This is well worth reading for anyone wanting an escape to the wilderness. It works equally as well for someone dealing with grief and on the other hand anyone working in adventure therapy or group facilitation.
Thank you Mr. Neale for a good read.

This is a remarkable well written book considering it is Mr Neale's first book. It is a compelling story about the life of a boy into his early adult life dealing with the loss of his father at a young age. I enjoyed it a lot.
What a wonderful story! I was spellbound from page one. Now that I have finished, I miss knowing what is happening in Gabriel Clark's life. The book is a beautiful picture of the gospel message hidden, but easily recognized, in the life of Gabriel and his relationship with the river. It would spoil the story to say too much.
