    Utterly underwhelming Jess s grandfather is dying and she meets this mysterious boy swimming about in this river He becomes and visible as her grandfather s health fails while he paints a river All very metaphorical and everything isn t it Sigh Let s do this in list form.PROS of the book 1 Convincing aura of spirituality2 Themes run deeper than one thinksCONS of the book 1 Written very VERY prosaically2 Cripplingly obvious plot twists3 Utterly boring, half baked characters4 Nothing new in the themes or ideas Lif...

    I just re read this, after a gap of a couple of years The aura of the book had lingered with me in a way that few books do I still find it extraordinary, and completely worthy of the plaudits it has won This time round I tried to concentrate on the way it was constructed Tim Bowler weaves a completely satisfying mesh between the river and the oft repeated description that it flows all the way to the sea , Jess the agile swimmmer her artist grandfather, and the mysterious river boy who moves between the darkness of the river and the grandfather s eponymous last painting As Jess and ...

    There are no endings to anything, like happily ever after is still a going on thing, an end is just a period to end the sentence to start a new one The book River Boy by Tim Bowler is about how an end can be a start to anyone, even if you die and end your life, but story about you would still continue People would still have memory about you, the traces of you all around the world would still be there, your achievement, and your dream, would still exist in the world no matter if you still exist or not This book is about a new start after the end, how everything would still go on even after everything ended This book is about a girl who is on her blooming youth and her grandfather who is standing on the life of cliff, going to a trip together The girl who s flower is just about to be in blossom, and her grandfather who s flower is about to fade away, together their emotion get entangled over her grandfather s dream in his youth, the River Boy River Boy was a book that took me to a flashback trip to the start of my life, and compare myself back then with myself who currently exist now, how I changed according to what my dream was My dream was used to be an artist when I was a tiny little girl, but now I want to be a veterinarian However, artist is still my dream as well bec...

    I read this book a number of years ago and was reminded of it today as I drove along a road which follows the river Usk As I gazed at the river I experienced my usual longing to be in the water swimming I have only once actually tried swimming in a river and I remember how this book drew me in with its tale of a young girl who finds it perfectly natural to swim in rivers and who is well equipped to do so.The general storyline is lovely, very real and believable and the surreal supernatural elements slide in among the mundanities with the ea...

    This one was a lot like Frozen Fire, also by Bowler It is about yet another mysterious boy, and ends with a smiliar case It kept me going with adventure and mystery, and it was an interesting tale It isn t one of my favorites though.
