The Bamboo Heart

Reader reviews - The Bamboo Heart

I read "The Bamboo Heart" in one day. I couldn't put it down. I found the story both exciting and 
inspiring. The WW iI comments demonstrated research and the story, although, fictional, was 
believable. i loved having to wait until close to the end to find out what really happened.
I just loved the excitement of wondering who really was the baby's Father. Mr. Gravelle is an 
amazing writer. I can't wait to read the next one!

"Bamboo Heart" took me on an adventure through Heaven & Hell, and then back to Heaven.....Wow...I enjoyed every minute.. Could not take my eyes off the page. Here it is 6:22 a.m. and not the first time t...his book kept my attention throughout the night and into the wee hours. The story is riveting. Bravo.What I really liked about the story you told is that it opened my eyes to the harsh reality of war, and the pain and suffering that goes along with it. But, the way you told it, in such a truthful, tender and graceful manner, is what kept me fascinated.

I loved the way all the characters were portrayed, especially with the knick names.  I think he nailed it for that era, because I can hear my parents talking about their childhood friends with nicknames like LiLi, Googles, etc.  And, his description of "holy shits" tickled my funny bone.  I found myself smiling at the conversations between Jack and McGee. I felt present throughout the I was watching from a balcony.Henry has great talent.  He should submit this book to Oprah's Book Club!

Joyce Soares - January 2011
This story starts off with a strong sense of what will happen next. The nurse wishes to question a former POW with the hope of finding her grandparents. The former POW had become reclusive and in essence made the nurse's task much harder. I found myself looking ahead (in my mind) wondering where the author was headed. There is intrigue on different levels with this story. What will happen to the POW and what will happen in the nurse's quest. Mr. Gravelle has begun a story here that calls for a further look. I see this story entertaining many readers in the future.

The Bamboo Heart kept my attention the whole time and left me wondering what happens next. I look forward to reading the rest. The story so far is fantastic!

Nicole Gravelle

Mr. Gravelle is an extremely talented writer and The Bamboo Heart is one of his best. Looking forward to seeing this on the Best Sellers List!

Lizzie Ross

I like that this story starts "sixty-five years later." Using this phrase sets the stage for uncovering something important that happened long ago but still may be affecting lives today. The character descriptions in this piece are enough to allow me to sketch a mental picture, but they aren't so long that I feel mired in description. This piece achieves a good balance of narration and dialog. I like the basis of this story and a lot of what the author has done.

Wow! Great flow, wonderful job keeping the reader guessing and wanting more...and that's what I want - to read more! Bring it on!

Stephanie Regine

I find the characters have a real depth and a warmth to them. The author's storytelling is superb. Pages fly by, the mark of an excellent read.

David Wagner

I want more. I want to know who Mary is, what "Fibbers" story is, I want to know all of his secrets and what is making him so unhappy. These first pages really caught my interest and I want more!

The Bamboo Heart kept my interest and I wanted to read on and on. The book made me feel as though I were right there in the room with the characters, listening to them and looking on. Great work Mr. Gravelle!! You touched my heart with this book!

Paulette M. Conway

This book holds your attention, one has to keep reading to see what happens next! The story warms your heart, and bring the character to life. A very nostalgic look at the war years. A must read!

Linda G. Walker

"I just finished reading the Bamboo Heart and was really moved by it. It is a phenomenal story written by a gifted author. Get yourself a copy and a box of Kleenex as you will need them as you come to realize through the writers eyes the horrors of war."
