Gold by Chris Cleave

Usually, this is where we’d tell you what this book is about.
But with Chris Cleave, it’s a bit different.

Because if you’ve read The Other Hand or Incendiary, you’ll know that what his books are about is only part of the story – what really matters is how they make you feel.

GOLD is about the limits of human endurance, both physical and emotional.
It will make you cry.

GOLD is about what drives us to succeed – and what we choose to sacrifice for success.
It will make you feel glad to be alive.

GOLD is about the struggles we all face every day; the conflict between winning on others’ terms, and triumphing on your own.
It will make you count your blessings.

GOLD is a story told as only Chris Cleave could tell it.  And once you begin, it will be a heart-pounding race to the finish.

Peer & Press Reviews

Cleave goes for the gold and brings it home in his thrillingly written and emotionally rewarding novel…  From start to finish, this is a truly Olympic-level literary achievement.

Publishers Weekly

Gold is a very good novel… it has that rare gift of getting past the urban sneer to move and gratify, to stir us because it does, indeed, matter.  It is bold and brave and, when you’re on your way to the games this summer, and the person opposite you on the train is sobbing hot tears on to their Kindle, you’ll have a pretty good idea what they’re reading.


Cleave is an acutely intelligent wordsmith.  Some of the sentences cut so deep you want to scream out in pain and recognition…  This is an inspirational and moving novel in so many ways, and everyone should read it.
