I give this quick read; Gifts and Consequences, two thumbs up for a couple of reasons. First, having watched my sweet mother, deal with, and eventually pass away from, Alzheimers, I was glad Mr. Coleman treated the illness with tenderness and care. Second, the plot and story telling are wonderful! The characters are memorable and the twists and turns unexpected. It moved quickly and kept my interest till the end, both, in my opinion, admirable qualities in a book! Great job Daniel Coleman.

This is a good book for just about anyone. I could have read it to my husband and kids and they would have benefited from it as well. It kept me engaged throughout the entire book. Before I began I thought it would be like so many of the other books with the theme of wealthy person helps less fortunate people. I am happy to say that from the beginning of the book all the way to the end, I could not have been more wrong. Daniel Coleman has given the story an interesting twist and it works marvelously! The story is believable and the reading is enjoyable. I would highly recommend this book to any of you out there and will be recommending it to my book club.

The product review and the other reviews give you the summary of the story, I don't think you need it repeated again. I gave it five stars because I loved the story. Just as I'm sure you have seen enough 'page turner, fast paced, well drawn character' statements, so even though it applies to this book, I won't add mine to the pile...wait, I think I just did.

I feel a really good story needs character growth; a great story makes you think about what is true or sometimes more true, this did just that for me. I could see Johnathan's point of view but Marcus's as well. It also made me think about how someone who has a great deal of money can wield it for their own purposes. The real plus was some of the characters were thinking about it too.
The story was about integrity as well as consequences; it was about what exactly is a gift and who is receiving the greater gift, the one who gave it, or the one who received it.

Some people like to know if there is any objectionable language in the story, I don't think there was any that was out of character, I only mind it when it is gratuitous and not how one would expect a character to talk, so I may have not really noticed a word or two.
There is mention of God and some religious references. It works with-in the framework of the story, it isn't tacked on to make a Christian genre book to pander to a Christian audience. It isn't overly sticky, cheesy or preachy, but it is there, particularly toward the end. It has it's place and keeps to it.
When it came to the end, I admit I had to walk away from it for a bit before I could finish the last few pages. It just had that kind of emotional impact for me.
I can't think of any cons right now or really glaring plot holes, but that may be because I got the book today, and couldn't stay away from reading it until it was finished.
I will be keeping it for a later re-read and I will recommend it to certain family and friends.

Thank you Daniel Coleman. One of the earmarks of a great work of art is that it impacts you on deep level, invoking a profound emotional response. You never walk away from a piece like that exactly the same person you were before the experience. Coleman has achieved a masterpiece in this book.

The Bible tells us to"...act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.", but on a day to day level doing so is difficult. What a beautiful story of trying to get justice and mercy to live in harmony.

Jonathan, the hero of our story, struggles to relieve his regret of a life not well lived by honoring a promise to his wife. The author gives us, the readers, an extremely thought provoking look at the human struggle to be more...what are we really willing to give.

During the marathon reading of this book, I couldn't walk away, I was forced to take a long hard look at myself and ask some hard questions. Am I really willing to be healed, do I have that kind of faith? I also questioned the motives behind my charity. Am I really a lover of mercy or am I secretly judgmental, trying to impose my own form of justice?

This is a don't miss read. You will never regret the time you will spend with Gifts and Consequences.

What will we do for something we really want? How often have we said or heard someone say "I'd do anything if ... "? In this novel, Jonathan Wheeler, a multi-billionaire, does just that. He and his team find people who have uttered similar words, and makes a decision whether or not they deserve a gift that will make their wishes come through... but the gifts come with a cost. The recipient of the gift needs to undertake a difficult task, in the full understanding that should they fail in the task, the consequences may be worse than the problem they originally faced.

Jonathan himself has a personal tragedy to bear, his wife suffers from Alzheimer's and is slowly starting to forget everything about her life and his. In a moment of lucidity though, she entrusts Jonathan with the task of helping others with the fortune he's built.

Will a boy take out the most unpopular girl to a dance if he's given tickets to a concert he desperately want to go to? What will happen if he doesn't? Will a man agree to work as a grave digger for a year at a cemetery where his daughter was buried in exchange for his other daughter's college tuition? Will a man walk across the country in order that his wife receives expensive radical treatment?

Jonathan's unconventional methods at times put his gift recipients in dangerous situation, but he believes that there is a hidden strength in everyone.

Some of the stories inspire, even Jonathan, and some disappoint. But is he really bestowing gifts to these people or is he playing God with them? Are gifts truly gifts if they are tied to consequences for tasks unfulfilled, or are they merely rewards?

Definitely one worth reading.
