A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of having Brad Graber here for a Q & A. Ever since, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the time when The Intersect would finally pop up in my TBR list. I loved the premise for this one, converging storylines always catch my interest and Graber did an outstanding job of weaving the lives of eight characters together here.

As I mentioned earlier, there are eight different people here that eventually cross pat

The Intersect, written by Brad Graber, is a thoughtful portrayal of strangers whose lives intertwine in the most seemingly random and dramatic of ways. A cast of well-defined characters includes a worn out healthcare official, a lovable psychic, a precious and precocious elderly couple, a troubled teen, an immigrant family, and this reader’s favorite, a soulful and witty Charlie.

Graber captures many difficult truths, including the plight of the infirm elderly, the problems of aging, varying degr

The Intersect intertwines the lives of disparate strangers against the backdrop of Phoenix AZ in unexpected ways. The book begins with Dave and Charlie, long-time partners establishing a new life together in Phoenix. As in life, things never go as expected and lots of stressors can erupt. Graber weaves in diverse, yet perfectly flawed characters of such variety, you don't see them coming. I read the book in three days, something I rarely find time to do. The stories are in short segments so it's ...more

I received a copy of The Intersect through Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review. Pleasantly surprised by this book from a first-time author - don’t let the odd cover photo throw you off (still can’t quite figure it out honestly), the writing was captivating and the cast of characters well-developed. I loved the way Graber intertwined the various plots and represented the human experience with such a diverse collection of individuals.

Have to admit the ending was pretty underwhelm

The Intersect is such a great read! It's hard not to fall in love with the characters, especially Daisy, the senior woman who is spunky and upbeat even after everything that happens to her. Graber makes you feel like you are in the room listening to Charlie, Dave, and Daisy talk. I highly recommend this book - it's fun, fast-paced, and delightful.

A very large book with many pages full of quite a few storylines. I would classify this book as an ensemble cast book where there are a few connections between some of the stories, but they all live in Phoenix, Arizona and are just trying to navigate life.

With every kind of relationship under the sun represented this book could easily move from book to tv form. I almost felt as if each chapter could be a full episode. I liked the obvious connection

A friend lent me her copy of this book, and I'm glad she did. What a great book. There were moments I couldn't put it down (or couldn't wait to pick it up again), and there were moments I feared I knew what was coming next and almost wanted to put it down. Sometimes my hunches were correct; sometimes the author surprised me. I enjoyed how the author wove the relationships between the characters. He has a way of making the reader know and understand the characters; some you root for, others you h ...more

Brad Graber writes novels because he grew up in a family where no one ever listened to him - so he made up stories about them.

Born and raised in New York City, Brad obtained a B.A. in Biology from the State University of New York at Buffalo and an M.H.A. from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. A former healthcare executive, Brad has held a number of management positions and been a Fell
