Review: The Cure by Athol Dickson

  • Hardcover: 336 pages
  • Publisher: Bethany House (July 1, 2007)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0764201638
  • ASIN: B005Q6MG28

  • Riley Keep is a homeless alcoholic and has been for a long time. Since a massacre in the jungle where he and his wipe had been missionaries. But even on the streets he hears rumors of a cure for alcoholism in his hometown in Maine. He and his friend make their way back, hoping for a miracle. Only there is a cure, and Riley takes it and tries to build a new life out of it. Only, things in the town go from bad to worse as desperate people demand it.

    The book is more than just a search for the cure. It examines the greed to exploit such a cure (announced price per dose $5,000) as well as the greed to possess it and get a new beginning to life. It also examines, Riley's choices and their unintended consequences and the matters of responsibility and self healing. As they say, an alcoholic can stop drinking but the problems that led to the drinking are still there.
