5 years

"I delight greatly in the Lord, my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with jewels." {Isaiah 61.10}

"I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time - waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God - it changes me."  {C. S. Lewis}

The River by Michael Neale

The River is about young Gabriel Clarke, about his journey to maturity, the process of finding himself and the place he belongs to.

To be honest I was disappointed in the book. I guess I expected much more than what I actually got from it. The book is a metaphor between The River and God, but the thing is there is nothing about God or the Bible in it. It's just something that you eventually pick up while reading the book. 

The story in itself I quite enjoyed. Even though the plot was a bit predictable at the beginning, the end surprised me, though. It is an easy read, but if you’re not familiar with kayaking and other similar sports you might find it a bit hard to understand at some points.

All in all it was a good book, but I wasn’t impressed.

Here's the book trailer:
