Gilead is an epistolary novel—it's one long letter from an old, dying father to his son. That means it doesn't follow a step-by-step plot structure. John Ames, the old guy writing the letter, will begin a story one day, touch on it later, and maybe conclude it eventually.

      GILEAD is a book of small beauties and large truths, the rare novel that is unafraid to talk about matters of faith in terms both profound and significant, without either trivializing or sentimentalizing their importance. Robinson's prose is luminous and brilliant, full of passages that beg to be savored, shared, and remembered for their wisdom.   For Marilynne Robinson, literary explorer, gifts of language reward journey By Colleen Walsh, Harvard Staff Writer Marilynne Robinson’s debut novel “Housekeeping,” about a pair of orphaned sisters raised by their eccentric aunt in an isolated town, was an instant hit among critics and is still widely read and admired today.

        "Gilead is an almost otherworldly book. Its characters are, to a one, good people trying to do right. Obviously a work of enormous integrity, it feels different in kind from the work of writers who produce a book every couple of years, rushing to meet alimony payments, one imagines, or wanting to renovate kitchens/5(6).   "Gilead" is] a poignant, absorbing, lyrically written novel and] a wonderfully readable book--moving, compelling, and fascinating in any number of ways Robinson's decision to cast this novel as a letter endows it with a tremendous sense of immediacy and intimacy.
