The plot seemed promising but...
the writer couldn't seem to get any flow going, at least not to this reader. The central conflict is barely evident and instead the book becomes a series of situational vignettes. The characters are connected but only in a marginal and coincidental way and at one point I had to double check to see if this was not a book of short stories. I usually prefer introspection over plot development (althouth there needn't be a choice) but in "The River" there is neither. I wish I had given this one a pass.
