THE GOOD FATHER
by NOAH HAWLEY

SYNOPSIS:
An intense, psychological novel about one doctor’s suspense-filled quest to unlock the mind of a suspected political assassin: his twenty-year old son.
As the Chief of Rheumatology at Columbia Presbyterian, Dr. Paul Allen’s specialty is diagnosing patients with conflicting symptoms, patients other doctors have given up on. He lives a contented life in Westport with his second wife and their twin sons—hard won after a failed marriage earlier in his career that produced a son named Daniel. In the harrowing opening scene of this provocative and affecting novel, Dr. Allen is home with his family when a televised news report announces that the Democratic candidate for president has been shot at a rally, and Daniel is caught on video as the assassin.
Daniel Allen has always been a good kid—a decent student, popular—but, as a child of divorce, used to shuttling back and forth between parents, he is also something of a drifter. Which may be why, at the age of nineteen, he quietly drops out of Vassar and begins an aimless journey across the United States, during which he sheds his former skin and eventually even changes his name to Carter Allen Cash.
Told alternately from the point of view of the guilt-ridden, determined father and his meandering, ruminative son, The Good Father is a powerfully emotional page-turner that keeps one guessing until the very end. This is an absorbing and honest novel about the responsibilities—and limitations—of being a parent and our capacity to provide our children with unconditional love in the face of an unthinkable situation.

  1. I don’t think I ever could, but I think some people could.

  2. I think it takes a lot, but I do think a parent can stop loving unconditionally.

  3. yes i have seen it happen

  4. This is one on my “to-buy” list. I’d love to win it.:) I can’t imagine not having unconditional love for my children, but there are definitely people out there who do lack that ability. Not sure if I could loose it.

  5. They may say they are going to, but I don’t think it is possible.

  6. I don’t think so.

  7. I think you always love-but sometimes you don’t like.

  8. you love who they are not what they do

  9. As a parent, the answer would be no.

  10. This book sounds riveting, totally edge-of-your-seat, can’t put it down kind of book!

    I loved your review as it gave me a very good idea of the underlying theme of the story and the anguish for dad in trying to cope with wat’s happening.

    I think whether or not a parent can stop loving unconditionally depends on the character of the parent but I think parents, especially mother, who truly and unconditionally love their child, cabbot stop loving them. They may dislike what their child has done, even find it abhorrent but still love that child.
    I don’t remember which serial killer it was – maybe the one who lived on Long Island? – but the mother of one of the notorious serial killers said then that she couldn’t believe what he’d done how awful it was, but he was her child and she still loved him.

  12. no we are in love for life with our kids
