MORNING GRAVITY [Hardcover] Review

MORNING GRAVITY [Hardcover]"Morning Gravity" is the first novel by Gregory Maddigan and I am hoping it is only the beginning of this writer's career. A "coming of age" novel with strongly defined characters, Maddigan captures the essence of growing up in a Catholic high school with a wonderful blend of humor and pathos. Gordon Clearman, the main character, is a teen-ager with a twist; he is torn between the adolescent world around him and his thoughts of the priesthood.

His characters are genuine and for the adult reader they evoke memories of one's own adolescence. The conflicts Gordon and his friends experience ring true for us all. Maddigan's use of language and the integration of literary references leaves the reader nodding his/her head in personal reflection.

"Morning Gravity" is an outstanding novel and I recommend it most highly.
