Beyond the Point: A Novel | Claire Gibson
60 posts | 46 read | 49 to read
In this powerful debut novel set at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, three womena nationally-ranked point guard, the granddaughter of an Army general, and a rebellious Homecoming Queenare brought together in an enthralling story of friendship, heartbreak, and resilience. Duty. Honor. Country. Thats West Points motto, and every cadet who passes through its stone gates vows to live it. But on the eve of 9/11, as Dani, Hannah and Avery face four grueling years ahead, they realize theyll only survive if they do it together. Everyone knows Dani is going places. With athletic talent and a brilliant mind, she navigates West Points predominantly male environment with wit and confidence, breaking stereotypes and embracing new friends. Hannahs grandfather, a legendary Army general, offers a stark warning about the dangers that lie ahead, but she moves forward anyway, letting faith guide her path. When she meets her soul mate at West Point, the future looks perfect, just as planned. Wild child Avery moves fast and doesnt mind breaking a few rules (and hearts) along the way. But she cant outpace her self-doubt, and the harder she tries, the further it leads her down a treacherous path. The worldof business, of love, and of warawaits Dani, Hannah, and Avery beyond the gates of West Point. These three women know that what doesnt kill you makes you stronger. But soon, that adage no longer rings truefor their future, or their friendship. As theyre pulled in different directions, will their hard-forged bond prevail or shatter? Beyond the Point is a heartfelt look at how our closest friends can become our fiercest battle buddies. After all, the greatest battles we fight rarely require a uniform.

Omg what a beautiful book! It definitely lives up to all the hype.

The story was mesmerizing. I became so invested in the lives of the three women. I felt like I personally knew them and that I was right there with them through their ups and downs. All three of them felt so realistic.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

If you are looking for a cheerful read, this isn‘t the book for you. This book is a sad one, but has themes of perseverance and strength throughout. I didn‘t like how the author skipped the final two years at West Point, but she gave us snippets of what happened during those two years. I wish there was more to the ending since it was depressing, but it did end on a hopeful note.

🚨CONTENT INCLUDES: sexual assault and harassment, racism

This longer read is great for long summer days. I got it bc it is set in the exact years I was in college and the idea of female cadets was interesting. It's a great friendship story that follows these ladies from freshman year to finding themselves as young adults.

Read Harder Challenge: Doorstopper published after 1950 by a female author. Tome. Doorstopper. Brick. However you refer to a book with 500+ page, this one is a don't miss. I laughed, cried, sat pondering, and spend the last two days devouring this title. In total honesty I never would have picked it up myself because I try and stay clear of modern day war storylines due to personal triggers but.... It will easily be one of my favorites for 2020.

Megabooks This was a favorite of 2019. I really loved those women! 3y
MaggieCarr Agreed! So well developed, shocked that it came from a debut author. I hope she writes more. 3y

"No one tells you that grief feels like fear—it amps you up, making you want to run for your life, even though there is nowhere to go, no place where death will be unreal. Grief chokes you and paralyzes you, making the most menial decisions feel impossibly huge."

My eyes filled with tears at the truth of this.

I liked this book, however there were some things that brought down my enjoyment of it. The things I liked include are the friendships and how real they felt with the ups and downs, the grief was well done as was showing how life can go far from plans. What I didn‘t like was the timeline, she jumped ahead months/years but important things happened in between so she had to go back and tell us those things, it didn‘t flow well. #BOTM #BOTMBacklist

8little_paws Would you recommend it specifically on audio? I can get it via audio at my library and it's fairly high on my list. Or should I grab a paper copy instead? 3y
Cityofamber @8little_paws I liked the audiobook, just make sure you pay attention to the dates so you know when the jumped a few years/months ahead :) 3y
8little_paws Thank you! I was thinking of starting a new audiobook to listen to while I knit/crochet. Perhaps this'll be it. I find I can focus really well on audiobooks while crafting. 3y

If you were like me and expected this book to tell a profound tale of how 3 female West Point student‘s lives changed as their training adapted for leadership in a post 9/11 US Army, well, you‘d be wrong as was I. But you‘d realize this within a few pages and make a grab for your sisterhood hat. Think of this as Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants goes to West Point, and just enjoy a story of enduring friendship.

I have found very few books that have captured the complicated dynamics of a female friendship so well. It spans many years similar to the Kate and Tully friendship in Hannah‘s Firefly Lane. I think the book jacket blurb misled me into thinking this story would be more centered around September 11 (which was glossed over in the novel), but it was a great emotional story. #botm #catsoflitsy

I may have enjoyed this had I known more going in. I thought this would involve a feminist look at women in today's military culture, but instead it read like a PG-rated Hallmark movie (which can be fun, just not what I expected). The relationships were unnatural, the diversity felt a little forced, and overall it just was fragmented. Still, this could be a great book for the right reader.

Ugh. Just started this, and already I'm not a fan of how the author is incorrectly portraying Pittsburgh as a place that natives want to "escape." In reality, locals and transplants young and old are damn proud of their wonderful city and its schools, and this is coming from a Philly girl ?? I may be nit-picking, but it's a HUGE pet peeve of mine when authors fail to research local cultural norms #botm

Reggie Nick Cutter put his book Little Heaven in New Mexico and I didn‘t recognize anything about NM in what he wrote. Totally get it. 3y
Bookwormjillk Love Pittsburgh! 3y
Erinreadsthebooks In my opinion, if an author is going to choose to portray a city in a negative way without any justification, he/she should just create a fictional city in the same general area and go with it. Why risk irritating people who want to like your books? 🤷‍♀️ 3y

3/5 stars - It was a really good story with just decent packaging. I didn‘t love it, but I also didn‘t hate it. I liked the individual and collective stories of the three women. However, I didn‘t like the writing. Multiple flashbacks within chapters and different perspectives each chapter were too much for me. I hope Claire Gibson keeps writing, because I would like to see her evolve and grow as a writer over time.

This book was ok for me. I didn't like how much it jumped in time. One chapter it is fall and the characters are at West Point and then all of a sudden it's summer in the next chapter. I also wasn't expecting all of the Christian references. #botm called it inspirational, but I didn't take that to mean religiously inspirational. Not that I have a problem with religion, but I am not a fan of Christian "inspirational" fiction. ⭐⭐⭐/5

stuck.in.the.stacks The "Inspirational" tag was the main reason I didn't get it. I worried the religion would be heavy and based on the reviews I think I was right. 4y

From last week's book tour but I remain behind in posting. I quite enjoyed this debut novel about three friends who meet at West Point in 2000 & form strong bonds before their lives pull them in different directions. The author grew up as an army brat at West Point & her passion & admiration for the female cadets rings through making the 500+ pages fly by. Paired with my recreation of a meal shared by Dani, Hannah & Avery in the book. Link👇🏻

This was between a so-so and a pick for me. Overall, I enjoyed it. I love a story of strong women who are figuring it all out; and complicated, flawed friendships. The thing I was not a fan of though, was the constant God and bible references. I had to stop a couple of times to try to google whether it was meant to be a religious book. No offense to anyone but that was just off-putting to me. Not my cup of tea. That aside, it is a good read.

After much deliberation, I finally chose my April #BOTM picks. They got me again. This is the 2nd time this year I filled 1 box, & used my 2nd account to fill another box! I think I only did that once at the end of last year.

The tagged book was a surprise pick. I didn't think I'd be interested, but was intrigued by Etaf Rum's endorsement. Thankfully Apple books has long samples. I loved the writing! Can't wait to receive my boxes. 😊 #bookhaul

I am happy with this pick from BOTM. It was a really unique view of army life from the start of the decision to go to West Point through the life that comes with that decision. I really liked the characters and the differences between them along with the storyline that followed the girls through the book. It was both uplifting and heartbreaking, but definitely worth reading.

Absolutely excellent. Reminds me of an adult version of Amy Effaw‘s wonderful Battle Dress (go right now and find a copy). I love the friendships, the camaraderie, the serious (and heartbreaking) and silly. Drew me in, kept me close, and tossed me out the other side. A book that will stay with me a long time.

Claire Gibson wrote with an understanding of loss and friendship that surpasses many of her contemporaries. In 500 pages, she wove a tale covering 7 years from the end of high school & beyond as 3 young women playing basketball for West Point, establish a lasting bond made up of their faith, their dedication to their sport, their frustration with & ultimate respect for the Army, and the determination to be the best they can be for family/country.

I couldn‘t put it down tonight and highly recommend to fiction lovers out there when it is released in April ❤️
