A River To The Ocean
Posted by Literary Titan
A River to the Ocean by Rayo Scala explores the expansive boundaries of the mind and how we manifest our dreams. Following the story of Jager as he searches for his missing brother 30 years after he first disappeared, we see the bond between family, both found and blood. The reader traverses across America with Jager and glimpses heartwarming views of the people his brother impacted as he traveled around the world. The characters we meet hold Anti-establishment views and aim to reach a higher plane of spirituality, emphasizing love, tenderness, and ascension.
A River to the Ocean carries an overarching message of higher self throughout the story while critiquing humanity’s detrimental effect on the Earth. While sci-fi elements are a huge part of the story and create scenes that couldn’t actually occur, each fantastical piece somehow feels attainable. These metaphysical theories are backed by the efforts of genuine people who aim to bring peace to the world and nourish their lives.
I loved seeing the bonds created throughout this book. Each character is well fleshed out and made to feel dynamic and lively. I believed in their motivations and their connections to Jager as they helped him along his journey to find his brother. As he travels from California to Hawaii to Montana, the people his brother loved and care for extend that same hospitality and support to Jager, showing the importance of found family.
However, as family felt like such a huge and important piece of the story, I found myself curious about the blood family members beyond Jager and his brother. Jager has children that he doesn’t often mention, and throughout the book I wondered about the extent of their contact and involvement in his life. I was also curious about the parents of the two men—did they miss Jager’s brother, and search for him later in life? Despite these questions, the extended connections made with those outside of blood family provided a great support system.
A River to the Ocean is an eye-opening story that reminds us to be conscious of the effect we have on the Earth, and how unstable our future can be. This book warns against filling your life with fear and suggests that we use our love, care, and attention to manifest a greater world to come. With a mindset like this, we can keep our Earth healthy and thriving and build lasting connections with the people around us.
