My Opinion:
Interesting book. Not exactly the type of book I would look to read but it was interesting. Tom does write a very descriptive world where you can get absorbed into it. I don’t know that much history on Ireland or what it is even like now. So it was interesting to read about it. I do think he is a wonderful writer just the book was not my type of book. You are taken into this world of some college kids as they try and rebuild themselves and some land in Ireland. The beginning is like a background on the people who are going to rebuild the farm and land. Then we are taken on a journey of how they do that. The characters were interesting enough but it wasn’t a page turner for me nor could keep me captured in the book. I like books that have a bit more thrill. With that being said, if you like more of a drama type of book, I think you would like this one. It is well written and you can imagine being in Ireland.
I give Gabriel’s Gate by Tom Galvin 3 of 5 stars.
