Of self exploration a redemptive narrative as well as a harrowing love story that does not spare raw emotion as the protagonist grapples with the trauma of the events that shaped that period of his adolescent life Beyond The Spiral Gates is a gut wrenching account of one boy’s journey of self discovery told in an unflinching and engaging voice. In his debut novel “Beyond the spiral gates” Mutch Katsonga spins a coming of age tale of a boy sentenced to life in an institution during his teenage years The whole story confirms a universal truth that most people aren’t inherently good or bad and that sometimes good people do bad things and vice versa The author makes his distaste for the members of organized religion very clear and it serves the purpose of the story since the main character is an abused boy put in the care of men of religion who gave him and his fellow inmates the worst possible time Some of the dialogue could’ve used work It’s a recurring issue with debut novels where the author believes that in order to write a good book he has to use elevated speech but in practice it’s the opposite I personally find it hard to connect with characters if they talk in a way that no real person talks As someone who managed to completely ruin her attention span with years of Internet abuse I sometimes found it hard to read through the long paragraphs of description even though they were very carefully crafted The author has a developed style and it’s obvious that this novel was a work of many hours This novel isn’t something I usually read but I am glad I did since it gave me something fresh to think about If you enjoy a good story of a boy finding his way to adulthood and let’s be honest who doesn’t then this is something worth checking out
