    Hardcover Ê North River MOBI Ì north epub, river ebok, North River KindleI knew before I finished that I would score this one 5 stars It's a love story but so much than a love story Dr Jim Delaney and Ruth Verga are people you would be proud to know Not because they are such perfect people they're not but because deep down they are good honest and courageous people There is a short interview with the author in the edition I read and he says he made the Greenwich Village neighborhood one of the characters of the story Aha I thought that's at least part of what makes this novel a cut above This was my first Pete Hamill novel but I hope it won't be the last

    Hardcover Ê North River MOBI Ì north epub, river ebok, North River KindleThis book was strange for me It was interesting enough that I wanted to keep reading it but when I finished I realized it wasn't really that good I think the problem for me was that the book seemed like it was leading up to something really big I kept waiting and waiting for it but it turned out to be extremely anti climatic

    Hardcover Ê North River MOBI Ì north epub, river ebok, North River KindleWith rich characters and a treatment of setting that drops you into time and place perfectly it's hard to see what some readers aren't liking about this book I guess they were hoping for something plot driven with big twists or some kind of wild climax I suspect they are hoping for something either darkly noir or conversely a much lighter conventional romance Instead they get something that stays in the real space between a story with people who are exceptional but still believable a plot that consistently maintains light suspense and has a good story arc that eschews pat solutions to life's intractable problemsThe central character is Delaney an aging doctor who lost the wife he loved under mysterious circumstances carries the physical and emotional scars of WWI and has an adult daughter who has gone a bit astray He's a real keystone in his neighborhood the doctor who makes house calls and does his best to clean up other people's mess

    Hardcover Ê North River MOBI Ì north epub, river ebok, North River KindleReviews can bounce between extremes depending upon the reviewers It helps to find someone who shares similar taste and that you know that if they like a book you will most likely enjoy it as well Oddly enough this person for me is Tom Hanks Yes the actor Tom Hanks I subscribe to his myspace blog because usually in the Fall he posts the books that he read over the summer and includes commentary His taste is eclectic and has caused me to read books I might not have picked up otherwise Tom Hanks read North River in what he calls the luckiest he has been this year reading it in a mountain cabin in the rain all alone except for his dog He also said that after finishing it he ordered all of Pete Hamill's books That was good enough for me And once again I agree with him This was my first Pete Hamill book Reviewers are saying that Forever is much better so I am really looking forward to reading it since I loved this book so much Many reviewers have given a synopsis o

    Hardcover Ê North River MOBI Ì north epub, river ebok, North River KindleI've never read anything by this man before My father was born in Hell's Kitchen I myself grew up on the NY streets and I was curious to see how Hamill portrays this very interesting depression era From what I can glean

    Hardcover Ê North River MOBI Ì north epub, river ebok, North River KindleI was surprised that this book did not have a higher Goodreads rating and readers as I found it quite lovely Perhaps I was predisposed to like it since the main character Dr James Delaney reminded me quite strongly of my grandfather also a World War I veteran and doctor practicing during the Great Depression Though my own grandfather lived and worked in small town Indiana rather than urban New York his quiet competence his strong ties to the community in which he lived and worked and his compassion for those who could not pay were all mirrored in Dr James Delaney

    Hardcover Ê North River MOBI Ì north epub, river ebok, North River KindleIt was OK But what I was looking for was typical Hamill gritty and sharp And the first couple of chapters led me to believe I was going to get just that But then the story devolved almost to the point of being a Chick Book with nice safe predictable characters and an ending to match One thing even off putting than the story's predictability was Hamill's obvious respect for the Tammany Hall machine that still had power in the early '30s I don't think I've ever heard Tammany Hall referred to without the adjective corrupt yet Hamill presents these characters with respect Also while his protagonist debates over accepting much needed money from a mobster whose life he's helped save he doesn't bat an eye when offered largess time and again as a result of his and his father's connections with Tammany Hall bosses
