Structurally, its uniqueness is quite brilliant.
This is truly a deep masterpiece of literary work.
It is the kind of work that is usually submitted for awards.
A great body of thought.

James Joyce would be proud.
G H Neale is a magician with delicate, but powerful hands,
which befuddle your eyes from page to page.
This is a very thought provoking book which covers many profound topics.
A writerly book for writers ... an incredibly talented writer.
I obtained the most enjoyment from the author’s endless creativity with language.
I marvelled at the shifts from exquisite prose to poetry, and every possible variation in between.
A novel steeped in the Joycean tradition.
An eclectic and dense word collage.
A literary masterpiece in a world sparsely filled of talent, eloquence and depth.
A literary accomplishment par excellence, with a language so acrobatic,
deep-thinking and inventive that it staggers the imagination.
This text is a bold statement about many things happening in the world, heart and mind of the deepest of thinkers.
It is unlike anything I have ever read and that is exactly what I like to see.
Always loved words, how they feel in your mouth, the sparkling links, shining & shimmering, slippery & sullen. Beauty is in them.
You are a writer pushing the boundaries and sending out a message for us all to ponder.
Likened to the works of many literary greats, Archipelago tells the story of several different characters.
Their search for meaning does not go unnoticed by engaged readers of this impressive and thought-provoking title.

Archipelago is a fascinating book, written by an erudite author.
One of those books I could read again and again.
I loved your book and hope many others will too.
G H Neale’s obvious intelligence is plain to see from the first page,
but the profundity of his characters and the potency of his storytelling
is all the more remarkable because it is quite uncommon for a debutant to be this brazen.
This is a special work, high-order art, philosophy made geography made poetry,
all wrapped in prose which will delight the linguist and aesthete and just about everyone in between.
Intellectually challenging, playing with our perceptions, socially & politically relevant.
An absolutely intriguing book which I found hard to put down once started.
This is a fabulously clever and philosophically daring parable about modern relationships.
It’s funny, poetic, thought-provoking and beautifully written.
I'm reading Arriba and you can certainly weave a good tale Mr. Neale, I'm thoroughly enjoying it.
G H Neale is a writer of incredible depth and precision.
His able storytelling is analogous to the amaranthine books from the days of yore.
Leslie A Corke
Archipelago and Arriba are social entities based on philosophies,
with a sense of humour, humanity, and dichotomy.
