    The 2004 Pulitzer Prize winning novelA New York Times Top-Ten Book of 2004Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction Nearly 25 years after Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson returns with an intimate tale of three generations, from the Civil War to the 20th century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America's heart. In the words of Kirkus, it is a novel as big as a nation, as quiet as thought, and moving as prayer. Matchless and towering. GILEAD tells the story of ... Show more

Read Gilead for sleep aid

by Inge on Dec 12, 2012

This book is an endurance test; the ramblings of a 76-year old preacher man, enlivened occasionally by small burps of humor or crankiness, culminating in a final chapter that delivers no major aha-moments, it felt like hard, but boring work. I read the whole thing because the reviews had been so positive, but now I kind of would like my hours back!

A Masterpiece

by Ellyb on Aug 23, 2009

Marilynne Robinson's "Gilead" is a beautiful, surprising work. The novel's structure is that of a letter written by an aging rural pastor to his young son. He knows he will be passing away before his son grows up, and wishes to write him his "begats," all those things which he would have imparted to his son as he grew up, had he lived. Throughout the novel, the narrator discusses his family's somewhat fraught political and religious history, and the schisms between fathers and sons that preceded him. Through these stories he tries his best to impart a sense of his faith and love to his young son, whom he holds so dear. However, sepulchral this is not. This is a rumination on joy, faith, and recognizing the sweet beauty of living. Savor the words in this novel rather than devouring or rushing through them. Give yourself the time and opportunity to be moved by Robinson's masterly depiction of real, pulsing, beating-in-the-arteries humanity. I am very glad that I did, because it's a rare book that can impart both a visceral sense of calm and a churning impulse to experience life.

Wonderful heartfelt read

by JeffB on Oct 23, 2008

I picked this book when I learned the author had written another book (Home) which is a companion book to Gliead. This story is well-written and is basically a letter written to a young son, whose father is dying and will not be there as the boy grows up. Not sentimental, but plain beautiful words.
