    • Gates of Eden is, on one hand, an ode to the idealism and hope of the youth of the sixties and, on the other, a chronicle of their erosion as they splatter against the brick wall of reality. This character-driven novel provides an accurate depiction, actually a chronology, of the political and social unrest of that era, and the various groups of young activists who came together, believing earnestly that they could radically change the world. They focused on ending the Vietnam War and civil righ [...]


    • It is said that if you remember the '60s, you weren't there, but some of us were there and yet remember and Charles Degelman is one of those people. He remembers (and researched) well enough to write "Gates of Eden," a compelling tale of 7 lives intertwined during this tumultuous period. From Manhattan to Hanoi to Mississippi, his characters--recognizable though not stereotypes--do what our generation did: join SDS, the Marines, backwoods communes, alternative papers, Freedom Riders, and every o [...]


    • I really enjoyed Gates of Eden. It has an episodic structure that introduces us to several unrelated characters who come together in various ways later on.

This tension gives Gates of Eden a strong forward movement and i [...]


    • Even though I grew up in the 60's I was still in high school so a lot of the antiwar movement went right over my head. I liked all the characters but it seemed like part way through the book we lost track of Eddie and Connie and I would have liked to hear more how that worked out. The character of Louis was also pretty much dropped after he had the fight with Connie.


    • Like Charles Degelman's characters, I was there for a thousand or so Sixties demonstrations and personal/political changes, and I can tell you, this novel feels very real. From the early hopes and ideals that somehow bloomed out of a crushing social order, through the many steps both towards and askew from liberating (as well as, sometimes, merely "liberating") ourselves, to a final commitment--whether to nonviolence and its struggle, or to personal love, or to a militance-at-any-cost--this book [...]
