The Res: An American Love StoryThe Res: An American Love Story by G. Michael Madison
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An authentic and emotional contemporary novel...

The Rez: An American Love Story by G. Michael Madison is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn settings and characters. The author weaves a well-crafted coming of age story that will captivate the reader’s attention from the start. Skillfully constructed, this coming of age saga will have you turning the pages from beginning to end. There’s plenty of imagery in the writing style that makes you feel you are right there in the story, and that’s something I look for in a good book.

This for me was a phenomenal read. It’s one of those stories that stayed with me for several days after I finished reading it. The vivid descriptions of the settings, situations, and the people were stunning. The author’s use of genuine dialogue further added to the overall atmosphere of authenticity.

The contrast between tone and content is a characteristic talent of only a few authors. Madison pays as much attention to his sentences as he does to his plots, shifting or consolidating meaning with the use of a single word. His writing is impeccably honed, full of juxtapositions and qualifications that help to create an authentic and emotional contemporary novel.

I’ll be looking forward to reading more from G. Michael Madison in the future. I would recommend this book and also add that it has a distinctly cinematic feel to it. Highly recommended reading and a well-deserved five stars from me.
